Fuzzy Lyapunov-based approach to the design of fuzzy controllers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we extend the classical Lyapunov synthesis method to the domain of computing with words. This new approach is used to design fuzzy controllers. Assuming minimal knowledge about the plant to be controlled, the proposed method enables us to systematically derive the fuzzy rules that constitute the rule base of the controller. We demonstrate the approach by designing Mamdani-type and Takagi-Sugeno-Kang-type fuzzy controllers for two well-known plants.
