Fuzzy logic control implementation in a PVC extruder for temperature control in a cable manufacturing industry


A number of steps are involved in manufacturing process of an insulated wire. One of the most significant steps of all is controlling the temperature of the poly vinyl chloride (PVC) material which we are going to control using fuzzy logic. The required temperature is set in accordance to the grade of the PVC material available, with no need of manual surveillance. The purpose of this paper is to implement fuzzy logic in wire manufacturing and thus make it autonomous.
Keywords: Fuzzy logic, PVC, PVC extruder, fuzzification, defuzzification.
