Abstract

In this paper, an intelligent control system technique is proposed to model and control of a nonlinear coupled three tank system. Two pumps fed the tank 1 and tank 2 and a fractional flow of these two pumps fed tank 3. The main aim of this paper is to make a set point tracking experiments of the tanks level using a nonlinear autoregressive moving average L-2 (NARMA L-2) and neural network predictive controllers. The proposed controllers are designed with the same neural network architecture and algorithm. Comparison of the system with the proposed controllers for tracking a step and random level set points for a fixed and variable flow parameter and some good results have been obtained.
