Abstract: The objective of this study is to apply various control approaches to control the speed of a heavy duty vehicle using an electronic throttle control system. However, the dc servo motor is used for controlling the angular position of electronic throotle valve. Moreover, four control techniquies are used to control prescribed two different random inputs of the heavy duty vehicle speed. These control structures are as standard PID controller, Model based neural network controller, Adaptive neural network based fuzzy inference controller and proposed robust adaptive neural based fuzzy inference control systems. On the other hand, the time performance specifications such as rise time, settling time, peak time, peak value, steady state error and etc are also examined for these control approaches. The results of the simulation for four approaches showed that the proposed robust adaptive neural network based fuzzy inference control system has better performance rather than other standard control systems under varying speed conditions. Finally, the proposed control system structure will be implented for speed control of dc servo motor.
