The article analyses a auto-tuning method for a fuzzy PID controller based on the relay experiment. The algorithm was implemented and tested on a real plant for redox agent stabilisation in a paper mill. Experiments have discovered some unsolved, practical problems which were discussed in the paper i.e. determination of the ON-OFF parameters, the non-shocked switching from the ON-OFF tuning algorithm into a continues fuzzy PID algorithm.
