This paper provides a nonlinear technique that uses a fuzzy inference system and neural networks for the identification purposes of heat flow transfer in the chamber. Firstly, linear models are obtained by transfer functions with delay using Matlab identification tools for heat exchange. Three different transfer functions are provided (for three sensors in different positions along the chamber), and after it has been concluded that the second model has the smallest error, it is tested using different input. In this case, the linear model failed to represent the behaviour of the system precisely, making the error more than 1.5 C in the steady state. This was expected because linear models are trustworthy only around certain operating ranges. In order to make the new model, which will be unique and valid in the whole state space, another identification method using an adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) was presented. Furthermore, for the best performance, the ANFIS architecture was found using one of the most famous population-based optimizations: the genetic evolutionary algorithm. With two inputs and 70 parameters found by optimization (40 premises and 30 consequent) ANFIS greatly outperforms standard identification technique in terms of the mean square error. This nonlinear model was also tested on the different input, which was not used in the training process, and it was concluded that the nonlinear model identifies the real object with a neglectable error, which is 45 times smaller than the linear one.
