There are many processes which have been automatically controlled by PID control or by the present control theory, but there are still many which are dependent on an operator’s manipulations for control. Skilled operators, by their perceptions or experiences, can exercise controls even of such processes which have peculiar characteristics and for which it is difficult to provide automatic controls. The fuzzy control system was created to allow computers to apply the same controls as skilled operators do, by taking the operator’s techniques into the computer. We shall describe below an outline of fuzzy control and the fuzzy control system we have developed.
