Abstract

Problem statement: The temperature control in plastic extrusion machine is an important factor to produce high quality plastic products. The first order temperature control system in plastic extrusion comprises of coupling effects, long delay time and large time constants. Controlling temperature is very difficult as the process is multistage process and the system coupled with each other. In order to conquer this problem the system is premeditated with neuro fuzzy controller using LabVIEW. Approach: The existing technique involved is conventional PID controller, Neural controller, mamdani type Fuzzy Logic Controller and the proposed method is neuro fuzzy controller. Results: Manifest feature of the proposed method is smoothing of undesired control signal of conventional PID, neural controller and mamdani type FLC controller. The software incorporated the LabVIEW graphical programming language and MATLAB toolbox were used to design temperature control in plastic extrusion system. Hence neuro fuzzy controller is most powerful approach to retrieve the adaptiveness in the case of nonlinear system. Conclusion: The tuning of the controller was synchronized with the controlled variable and allowing the process at its desired operating condition. The results indicated that the use of proposed controller improve the process in terms of time domain specification, set point tracking and also reject disturbances with optimum stability.
