This project is concerned with a problem of condensate level control. Due to a nonlinear geometry of a drum and nonlinearities induced by a pump and a valve, a process is highly nonlinear, representing a difficulty for existing control system based on the usage of a standard three state controller. In order to overcome these problems and improve control quality, the fuzzy gain scheduling control scheme is going to be implemented. Simulations with a nonlinear model of a condenser level control loop in Matlab+Simulink have shown that the fuzzy gain scheduling control strategy could provide better control quality.
