Controlling the temperature of the twin screw extruder is non linear and suffers from problems related to undesirable overshoot, longer settling time, coupling effects and disturbances. The system is designed with four different control techniques to control temperature at different set point changes and as well as to control sudden input disturbances. The technique involved is conventional PID controller, neural controller, mamdani type fuzzy Logic Controller and the proposed method is neuro fuzzy controller. The proposed method is smoothing of undesired control signal and maintains the temperature exactly at its set points. The software incorporates LabVIEW graphical programming for twin screw plastic extruder toolbox.
