Temperature Control

Temperature Control Report By Lambton College

Non-Technical Report Summary

Experiments were done for two temperature setpoints using an ON-OFF power switch and a linear power switch.

For the ON-OFF power switch, edeX fuzzy controller outperformed the PID controller, and provided significant energy savings of 31% and 25% for the two setpoints of the test. For the linear power switch, edeX fuzzy controller also provides energy saving of 6% and 15% for the two setpoints in comparison with the PID.

 

Technical Report Summary

Experiments were done for two temperature setpoints, 55 deg C. and 75 deg. C. The edeX fuzzy controller outperformed the PID controller, and provided significant energy savings of 31% and 25% for the two setpoints of the test, when the power switch was ON-OFF.

When a linear power switch was used the PID performed better than it did in when the ON-OFF switch was used. However, for the same two setpoints, edeX fuzzy controller was still better than the PID, providing energy saving of 6% and 15% for the two setpoints respectively.
