This study presents an adaptive neural fuzzy network (ANFN) controller based on a modified differential evolution (MODE) for solving control problems. The proposed ANFN controller adopts a functional link neural network as the consequent part of the fuzzy rules. Thus, the consequent part of the ANFN controller is a nonlinear combination of input variables. The proposed MODE learning algorithm adopts an evolutionary learning method to optimize the controller parameters. For design optimization, a new criterion is introduced. A hardware-in-the loop control technique is developed and applied to the designed ANFN controller using the MODE learning algorithm. The proposed ANFN controller with the MODE learning algorithm (ANFN-MODE) is used in two practical applications-the planetary-train-type inverted pendulum system and the magnetic levitation system. The experiment is developed in a real-time visual simulation environment. Experimental results of this study have demonstrated the robustness and effectiveness of the proposed ANFN-MODE controller.
