Application of fuzzy logic control to a fluidized bed combustor (FBC) is examined. Major aspects of fuzzy control are reviewed, and design of a fuzzy controller for the FBC is described. Selected experimental results are presented, and performance of the fuzzy controller is evaluated through comparisons to results from classical PI control of the combustor.
