Abstract—In this paper a Sugeno-Type FLC for temperature control in a batch polymerization reactor is developed and tested through a simulation study. A novel ANFIS-based method is implemented to design a practicable advanced controller. Temperature of a pilot-scale jacketed batch reactor is controlled by manipulating the reactor cooling water temperature. Manifest feature of the proposed method is smoothing of undesired control signal of conventional PI controller. The simulation study shows that the proposed controller has good set point tracking and disturbance rejection properties. Also it is robust against changes in the system parameters. It is also superior to the conventional PI controller and even previously proposed advanced controllers.
