This article presents a new learning methodology based on a hybrid algorithm for interval type-1 non-singleton type-2 TSK fuzzy logic systems (FLS). Using input-output data pairs during the forward pass of the training process, the interval type-1 non-singleton type-2 TSK FLS output is calculated and the consequent parameters are estimated by the recursive least-squares (RLS) method. In the backward pass, the error propagates backward, and the antecedent parameters are estimated by the back-propagation (BP) method. The proposed hybrid methodology was used to construct an interval type-1 non-singleton type-2 TSK fuzzy model capable of approximating the behaviour of the steel strip temperature as it is being rolled in an industrial hot strip mill (HSM) and used to predict the transfer bar surface temperature at finishing scale breaker (SB) entry zone. Comparative results show the performance of the hybrid learning method (RLS-BP) against the only BP learning.

What’s the Point of Brake Fluid?
The quality of brake fluid affects the reliability of the braking system and road safety. This substance transmits energy from master brake cylinder to wheel cylinder. Vehicle braking is characterized by friction forces between the brake rotor and brake pads. This releases a certain amount of heat which is transmitted to brake fluid through service elements of the brake system. Therefore, boiling point and viscosity are very important parameters of this substance. Besides, it must meet a number of other requireme...
Bulk Bag System Design Considerations
Designing a new Bulk Bag Mix Tank Feed System? Here are some considerations during the design phase that will help meet expectations of plant managers and operators alike: Gravity feed of solution or metering pumps: Depending on the installation, solution/slurry from the mix tank can be gravity fed to process or if discharging into pressure, metering pumps will be required. Once you determine you need metering pumps their are different types. IPM doesnt manufatucre any pumps but has used various types over the...
District heating points way forward for energy prepayment revolution
Ofgem, which has called energy prepayment the option of `last resort`, has announced a price cap for customers until the roll-out of smart meters in 2020. But smart metering is already being widely used in the district heating sector, where it is revolutionising prepayment and reducing energy bills. Customer friendly smart meters are fast making prepayment the first choice option for thousands of residents connected to community heating schemes. Technology from metering and billing specialist Switch2 Energy is...
Understanding the UK Labour Standards Assurance System [eBook]
The Labour Standards Assurance System (LSAS) is designed to reduce the incidence of labor standards abuses in the medical supply industry. Companies who supply to, or will supply to, National Health Service (NHS) Supply Chain must ensure the use of fair labor in their supply chain. The LSAS was developed by NHS Supply Chain, the Department of Health and other industry bodies to guide companies in this fair labor process. The system uses a maturity matrix consisting of four levels of compliance companies can...
The design and installation of the gas collection system
The designer of gas collection plants has the task to fulfill optimally the important criteria: stability of gas quality efficiency of collection economic viability of the plant The stabilisation of the gas quality helps to solve the problem between the uneven gas production of the landfill on the one side and the steady supply of gas to the utilisation plant, on the other. Only a carefully applied and readily adjustable active degassing, ensures the troublefree utilisation of the resulting landfill gas...
