Abstract

This paper has focused on the development of a Low-Cost Fuzzy Gain Schedule Neutralization Control System. The system dynamics has been identified for different operational conditions. The implementation and instrumentation of a typical Neutralization System using low cost elements, with an appropriate monitoring, control and data acquisition of the process variables has been successfully implemented, as well as the Fuzzy Gain Schedule pH neutralization controller. As inputs it has been used the Auxiliary Variable, defined with the linguist terms as Acid, Neutral and Alkaline by three trapezoidal membership functions, as well as the control error and the change in the control error, both defined by five triangular membership functions. The controller outputs were defined for the Acid and Alkali pumps by 18 triangular membership functions and it was defined a set of 50 fuzzy rules. The development of the control system considered in this paper reveals an attractive industrial application perspective, representing a potential application for water consumption reduction in industry, based on low cost elements.
