Abstract: Industrial control engineers, who are often faced with the problem of dealing with projects involving unknown or poorly modelled systems, usually have at their disposal a limited number of options to develop, implement, and maintain controllers, namely PID and, lately, fuzzy-based controllers. The large use of the PID controller comes from the widespread knowledge of its theory and easy tuning methods and its prompt availability in control equipment and supervisory systems. Nevertheless, depending on the manufacturer’s discretion, at least five gains have to be set. Fuzzy controllers for a SISO system usually demand between fifteen and twenty parameters. That’s also a problem for the maintenance personnel. The proposed SISO controller needs two heuristically defined gains to be set, based on knowledge about the free response of the plant and expected disturbances. Its simplicity allows its implementation on devices with memory and processor constraints.

Keywords: Nonlinear control, Sliding-Mode Control, Fuzzy Logic Control.
