We first introduce a non-adaptive fuzzy logic controller (FLC) for the control of live steam temperature in a coal-fired power plant. For further enhancing performance, we introduce a self-tuning method for the FLC that modifies the scaling factor of one FLC output. To make the FLC more portable to other similar plants and more robust we add another self-tuning mechanism that runs online and modifies the membership functions of the fuzzy rule set. We have used the meta-rule approach in the tuning mechanisms. The performance of the FLC is compared to a cascade PI controller.
