Abstract: The aim of this study is to examine various studies on fuzzy PID
controllers in literature and to classify these fuzzy controllers into categories . There
exist three major categories: Direct action (DA) type fuzzy PID controllers, fuzzy
gain scheduling (FGS) type fuzzy PID controllers, and hybrid type fuzzy PID
controllers. The DA type fuzzy PID controllers are further classified according to
the number of the input variables; namely single input, two input, and three input
fuzzy PID controllers.

Keywords: Fuzzy controllers, fuzzy PID controllers, tuning mechanisms.

be classified according to the above mentioned three
major categories.

2. DIRECT ACTION TYPE FUZZY PID


CONTROLLERS

2.1 Types of Fuzzy PID Controllers

Fuzzy PID controllers can be constructed either using


two inputs or three inputs. Therefore, DA fuzzy PID
controllers can be classified into three categories:
i) Single input fuzzy PID controllers,
ii) Two input fuzzy PID controllers,
iii) Three input fuzzy PID controllers. Figure 3. Single input fuzzy PID controller with three
separate rule bases.

only input, a single input fuzzy PID controller can be controller then one can obtain either fuzzy PD or

shown in Figure 4. When the inputs are chosen as
error (e) and the integral (or the sum) of error then the
controller becomes absolute form fuzzy PI controller.
If the inputs are chosen as error (e) and derivative (or
chance) of error (e& ) then an incremental form fuzzy
PI controller can be obtain, but the output is achieved
as the derivative (or the chance) of control signal as
shown in Figure 5 [18].

rule base.

The other way of forming a single input fuzzy PID is


shown in Figure 3. In this structure, there exist three Figure 4. Fuzzy PD-type controller structure
distinct rule bases using again only error as the input
fuzzy PD and a fuzzy I controller and their control
actions are summed to form a fuzzy PID controller. A
similar idea is used in [27] to form a fuzzy PID by
combining a fuzzy PI and fuzzy D controller. These
two fuzzy PID controllers are given in Figure 8,
Figure 9 respectively.
Figure 5. Fuzzy PI-type controller structure

The equivalence of fuzzy PD and conventional PD


controllers has been established under special
conditions [19-21].

Fuzzy PI control is known to be more practical than


fuzzy PD because it is difficult for the fuzzy PD to
remove steady state error. The fuzzy PI control,
however, is known to give poor performance in
transient response for higher order processes due to
the internal integration operation.

To obtain proportional, integral and derivative control Figure 8. A fuzzy PID controller formed by
action all together, it is intuitive and convenient to combining a fuzzy PD and a fuzzy I controller
combine PI and PD actions together to form a fuzzy
PID-type controller [6, 21-24]. Therefore, the
formulation of fuzzy PID controller can be achieved
by combining fuzzy PI and PD controllers with two
distinct rule-bases. Another and a simpler way of
construction a fuzzy PID controller is combining
fuzzy PD controller with an integrator and a
summation unit at the output. These two cases are
given in Figure 6 and in Figure 7, respectively. It is
obvious that the fuzzy PID controller given in Figure
7 has less number of rules and scaling factors
compared to the fuzzy PID that is given in Figure 6
[25].

combining a fuzzy PI and a fuzzy D controller

iii) Three input fuzzy PID controllers:


A fuzzy PID controller may be constructed by
introducing the third information besides error and
derivative (or the change) of error [28, 29]. When this
third input is chosen as the integral (or the sum) of
error, an absolute form fuzzy PID controller with 3-D

PID controller then the third input should be taken as

human expert can hardly sense the third dimension of
information, for instance, the acceleration besides
position and velocity in a motion control system, and
thus it is difficult to obtain the control rules,
(2) For the case of using sum of error, it is difficult to
quantitate its linguistic values since a different plant
needs different integral gain and steady state value of
sum of error,
(3) A 3-D rule base can be very complex when the
number of quantizations of each dimension increases,

As it is discussed above a wide variety of fuzzy PID

performance of these fuzzy PID controllers can be
summarized within two groups [7, 32]: (a) structural
parameters, (b) tuning parameters.

conventional gain scheduling (CGS), expect that the
operating regions are associated with overlapping
membership functions of the fuzzy sets defined in the
scheduling variable space and that a fuzzy inference

controller parameters around region boundaries based
on known local controller parameters. Hence, it is able
to express and use incomplete knowledge of the
controlled system and provide smooth transitions from
region to region.

category of fuzzy PID controller. In [43], the Takagi-
