Definition of the Subject
An intelligent controller may be interpreted as a computer-based controller that can somewhat “emulate” the reasoning procedures of a human expert in the specific area of control, to generate the necessary control actions. Here, techniques from the field of artificial intelligence (AI) are used for the purpose of acquiring and representing knowledge and for generating control decisions through an appropriate reasoning mechanism. With steady advances in the field of AI, especially pertaining to the development of practical expert systems or knowledge systems, there has been a considerable interest in using AI techniques for controlling complex processes. Complex engineering systems use intelligent control to cope with situations where conventional control techniques are not effective.
Intelligent control depends on efficient ways of representing and processing the control knowledge (de Silva 2003). Specifically, a knowledge base has to be developed and a...
