In this paper we present simulation results that we have at this moment with a new approach for intelligent control of non-linear dynamical plants. First we present the proposed approach for intelligent control using a hierarchical modular architecture with type-2 fuzzy logic used for combining the outputs of the modules. Then, the approach is illustrated with two cases: aircraft control and shower control and in each problem we explain its behavior. Simulation results of the two case show that proposed approach has potential in solving complex control problems.
