In this paper, we apply a modified version of Brain Emotional Learning (BEL) controller for Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) control system whose multivariable, nonlinear and non-minimum phase nature makes the task difficult. The proposed biologically-motivated algorithm achieves robust and satisfactory performance even though there are more than one control inputs to the plant, which may be used to get the desired performance. The response time is also very fast despite the…
