The use of electro-hydraulic cylinders in industry has been becoming increasingly popular. A Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC), which consists of the linguistic defined fuzzy sets and the control rules, is designed to control of the electro-hydraulic cylinder. Using the triangle shaped membership function; the position of the servo cylinder was successfully controlled. When the system working condition is altered, the control algorithm is shown to be more robust compared to the PID controller.
