## Abstract

Analytical studies of fuzzy fractional differential equations (FFDEs) of two different independent fractional orders are often complex and difficult. It is essential to develop comprehensive schemes for the solutions of FFDEs with independent orders. This article introduces and investigates the fully closed-form analytical solutions of FFDEs involving two different independent fractional orders under the strongly generalized Hukuhara differentiability (SGHD). Based on the concept of SGHD, we extract two possible solutions of FFDEs in terms of the Mittag-Leffler function. Potential solutions for homogeneous and inhomogeneous FFDEs are obtained using the definition of the fuzzy Laplace transform technique. Some interesting properties and results for the FFDEs are introduced using the concepts of SGHD. We illustrate some examples as applications to explain the effectiveness of our proposed results. FFDE has a variety of applications in science and engineering. To enhance the functional significance of this work, we solve the RLC circuit using the proposed technique in a fuzzy setting to analyze and interpret the theoretical results.
