Fuzzy Modeling and Control of Centrifugal Compressor Used in Gas Pipelines Systems

Part of the Applied Condition Monitoring book series (ACM, volume 2)


Respond to changing technology industrial installations, this work propose solutions to the modeling and control problems in industrial processes with the use of new approaches. The objective of this work is the use of fuzzy techniques in modeling and control in the study of gas compression system instability. The obtained results show clearly how the main dynamic characteristics, in our examined compression system, are reproduced using the proposed fuzzy model, allowing better performance during its control synthesis operation.
