Abstract

This paper introduces the application of evolutionary fuzzy modeling (EFM) in constructing global function approximations to subsequent use in non-gradient based optimization strategies. The fuzzy logic is employed for express the relationship between input and output training patterns in form of linguistic fuzzy rules. EFM is used to determine the optimal values of membership function parameters by adapting fuzzy rules available. In the study, genetic algorithms (GA's) treat a set of membership function parameters as design variables and evolve them until the mean square error between defuzzified outputs and actual target values are minimized. We also discuss the enhanced accuracy of function approximations, comparing with traditional response surface methods by using polynomial interpolation and backpropagation neural networks in its ability to handle the typical benchmark problems.
