Fuzzy Control Design & Simulation Toolkit - Int. fourth prize
Fuzzy logic should allow people having little or no mathematical or scientific knowledge to design controllers for fairly complex systems. A software package consisting of four modules was programmed to help the user design and test his fuzzy controllers. The main module is a fuzzy control design program. The other three modules are simulators of various plants. The whole package was written for Microsoft Windows using Visual C+/C++, taking care to ensure a user-friendly environment. Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) was employed to link any simulator program to the Fuzzy Control Design program, hence transferring the controller to the plant. Hardware implementation of the controllers designed is achieved easily because the virtual controllers may be transferred to an EPROM.
