This paper deals with the basic concepts, mathematical parameters and design aspects of the Neuro-Fuzzy logic based controller for Non-Linear process plant to control flow rate of a system. Many techniques such as conventional PID and also fuzzy controllers have been proposed to control the flow rate. In this paper a new control approach is composed which is called PID ANFIS controller. Finally, the operation features of the three methods have been compared in terms of system overall performance. The designing of the scheme and the corresponding results have been tested by employing Matlab-Simulink. It will be shown that the composed ANFIS based controller is more versatile in comparison with those two others, for Non-Linear process plants. In addition, there is a considerable comparison between the three controllers in the presence of disturbance and environmental noise.
