Abstract: A simple, yet robust and stable alternative to proportional, integral, derivative (PID) gain scheduling is developed using fuzzy logic. This fuzzy gain scheduling allows simple online duplication of PID control and the online improvement of PID control performance. The method is demonstrated with a physical model where PID control performance is improved to levels comparable to model predictive control. The fuzzy formulation is uniquely characterized by; (i) one fuzzy input variable involving the PID manipulated variable, (ii) two parameters to be tuned, while previously tuned PID parameters are retained, and (iii) a gain scheduling di.erential equation which relates the fuzzy and conventional PID manipulated variables and enables fuzzy gain scheduling.
