The Implementation of fuzzy model reference adaptive control of a velocity servo system is analysed in this paper. Designing the model reference adaptive control (MRAC) and the problem of choosing adaptation gain is considered. Tuning the adaptation gain by fuzzy logic subsystem and a simple synthesis procedure of fuzzy MRAC are proposed. Several simulation runs show the advantages of fuzzy MRAC approach. Experimental validation on laboratory speed servo is realized by the acquisition system. Results confirm benefits of proposed controller comparing to standard MRAC.
