Design of Self-Regulating Fuzzy Control System for Vacuum Sintering Furnace
Although the traditional PID controller is widely used in many practical application fields, it’s unsuitable for the control of the complex plant. The powder metallurgy sintering process had such characteristics as nonlinearity and large delay, etc., and it’s difficult for the conventional PID controller to meet the control requirements. According to these traits, we used a parameter self-adjusting fuzzy controller to control the heating temperature of the vacuum sintering furnace. In practice it shows that every quality index and control effect of this scheme is better than that of traditional PID controller.
