A study is described that compares the performance of a self-organizing fuzzy logic control law (SOC) with that of the more traditional P + D algorithm. The multivariate problem used for the investigation is the attitude control of a flexible satellite that has significant dynamic coupling of the axes. It is demonstrated that the SOC can provide good control, requires limited process knowledge and compares favorably with the P + D algorithm.
