The main idea of this paper is to present a possibility of application of hybrid-fuzzy controllers in control systems theory. In this paper, we have described a new method оf using orthogonal functions in control of dynamical systems. These functions generate genarilzed quasi-orthogonal filter, which are used in the concluding phase of the fuzzy controllers. Proposed hybrid-fuzzy controllers of Takagi-Sugeno type has been applied to a DC servo drive system and performed experiments have verified efficiency and improvements of a new control method.
