The Fuzzy Control Language (FCL) is a draft IEC 1131 standard for programmable controllers. IFCL is a version of FCL extended with the following goals in mind:
A program sample:
function_block Test var_input Light : Real [lux]; end_var var_output Switch : Nominal (On, Off); end_var fuzzify Light term Dark := ( 100 lux, 1)( 1000 lux, 0); term Twilight := ( 500 lux, 0)( 1000 lux, 1)(15000 lux, 1)(20000 lux, 0); term Bright := (10000 lux, 0)(20000 lux, 1); end_fuzzify ruleblock Rules if Light is Dark then Switch is On; if Light is Bright then Switch is Off; end_ruleblock end_function_block |
In this document the characters of the source code referred in syntax rules are printed in courier red. Syntax rules are expressed in Bacus-Naur forms (BNF) The operations of the forms are printed in courier bold. Literal elements are printed in bold red. Identifiers are put in angular brackets. The BNF operations are denoted as follows:
::= -- definition [] -- optional element | -- alternation {} -- required element (* -- this is a literal element
An IFCL program is written using the Unicode character set (see Unicode Transformation Format). The characters space (SP), tabulation (HT), line tabulation (VT), carriage return (CR), line feed (LF), and form feed (FF) are considered blank. Line end is determined by the operating system.
All lexical elements except for string and character literals are case-insensitive. The case is defined by the categories letter, upper case (Lu) and letter, lower case (Li) in the file UnicodeData.txt.
Any IFCL program can be written using only the code positions 0..127 corresponding to ASCII code.
There are two types of comments. Comments starting with (* continue until first appearance of *). Nested appearances of (* are not recognized. Comments starting with -- continue to the end of the source line they appear. Examples of comments:
-- This comment continues to the line end (* Comments like this may span across several lines *)
Integer literals have the syntax:
<integer> ::= <decimal-integer> | <based-integer> <decimal-integer> ::= <decimal-numeral>[<exponent>] <based-integer> ::= <base>#<based-numeral>#[<exponent>] <decimal-numeral> ::= <decimal-digit>[[_]<decimal-numeral>] <decimal-digit> ::= 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 <exponent> ::= E [<sign>]<decimal-numeral> <sign> ::= + | - <based-numeral> ::= <based-digit>[[_]<based-numeral>] <based-digit> ::= <decimal-digit> | A | B | C | D | E | F <base> ::= <decimal-numeral>
Within an integer literal underline (_) can be used to separate digits for better readability. Underline is not allowed to follow another underline start or end a numeral. <base> shall denote a number 2..16. When exponent appears it must be non-negative. No blank characters or comments are allowed in an integer literal. Examples of legal integer literals:
123 – Decimal number 123_{10} 1A6#FF# – Hexadecimal number 1A6_{16}=422_{10} 2#100_000_000# – Binary number 100000000_{2}=256_{10} 1e6 – Decimal number 1000000_{10}
Integer literals are overloaded. They have either the type Integer or the type Truth_Value. In the latter case the only valid values are 0, which represents logical false, and 1 which does logical true.
Real literals have the syntax:
<real> ::= <decimal-real> | <based-real> <decimal-real> ::= <decimal-numeral>.<decimal-numeral>[<exponent>] <based-real> ::= <base>#<based-numeral>.<based-numeral>#[<exponent>]
No blank characters or comments are allowed in a real literal. Examples of legal real literals:
123.0 – Decimal number 123.0_{10} 1E-1 – Decimal number 0.1_{10} 2#111.111#E2 – Binary number 11111.1_{2}=31.5_{10}
Real literals are overloaded. They have either the type Real or the type Truth_Value. In the latter case the only valid values are ones from the interval [0,1]. The value 0.0 represent logical false. The value 1.0 represents logical true.
Dimensioned literals have the syntax:
<dimensioned-real> ::= [<integer> | <real>] <dimension> <dimension> ::= Dimension specification
When a value appear it must be separated from the dimension by at least one blank character or comment when the dimension begins with a <letter>. The dimension syntax is described in Measures_UTF8_Edit.Get_Unit. Examples of legal dimensioned literals:
5 m – 5 meter 14.01°C – 287.16 K (14.01 Celsius degree) 0.123 μPa – 0.123E-6 Pa foot – 0.3048000 meter
Dimensioned literals have the type Real.
Intutionistic truth literals have the syntax:
<intuitionistic-truth-value> ::= [<possibility>:<necessity>] | ⊤ | ⊥ <possibility> ::= <real> | <integer> <necessity> ::= <real> | <integer>
Here <possibility> and <necessity> shall be numbers in the range [0,1]. Blank characters and comments may surround the brackets ([]) and colon (:). ⊤ (the Unicode code point 22A4_{16}) represents fully contradictory truth value. ⊥ (the Unicode code point 22A5_{16}) represents fully uncertain truth value. Examples of legal intuitionistic truth values:
[1:1] – True [0:0] – False [0.9:0.5] – Possibility is 0.9, necessity is 0.5 [1:0] – Uncertain ⊥ – Same as above [0:1] – Contradictory ⊤ – Same as above
Intuitionistic truth value literals have the type Intuitionistic_Truth_Value.
String and character literals have the syntax:
<character> ::= ''' | '<non-quotation-mark>' <string> ::= "<string-body>" | "" <string-body> ::= {"" | <non-quotation-mark>} [<string-body>] <non-quotation-mark> ::= Any Unicode code position except "
Within string literal quotation marks are doubled. Examples of legal character and string literals:
''' – Character ' "abdcd" – String abcd """" – String " "" – Empty string
Identifiers start with a <letter> and can contain digits and underline character:
<identifier> ::= {<decimal-digit> | <letter>}[_]<identifier> <letter> ::= The Unicode character in the categories uppercase or lowercase letters
In the above specification of <letter> the categories letter, upper case (Lu) and letter, lower case (Li) are determined by the file UnicodeData.txt. Identifiers are case insensitive.
Identifiers can refer predicate variables and domain values of nominal and linguistic set predicate variables.
The language objects are subdivided into:
The language defines the following types of constants:
Predicate variables are subdivided into input predicate variables, those for which values are known from the rules base, and the output predicate variables estimated from the values of the input ones and the rules. Further predicate variables are separated according to the type of the domain set:
Predicate variables are declared in one or more declaration blocks:
<input-variables-block> ::= var_input <variable-declarations-list> end_var <output-variables-block> ::= var_output <variable-declarations-list> end_var <variable-declarations-list> ::= <variable-declaration>[<variable-declarations-list>] <variable-declaration> ::= <identifier>:<variable-type-definition>; <variable-type-definition> ::= { <nominal-variable> | <integer-variable> | <float-variable> | <linguistic-set-variable> }
Each variable has a unique name specified by the <identifier>, which is followed by colon (:), declaration of the type and finished by semicolon (;).
A nominal variable has the domain specified as a set of identifiers:
<nominal-variable> ::= nominal (<nominal-domain>) <nominal-domain> ::= <identifier>[,<nominal-domain>]
Example of a nominal variable declaration:
Color : nominal (Red, Green, Blue);
An integer variable has the domain consisting of a range of integer numbers:
<integer-variable> ::= integer <integer-range>
Here <integer-range> is an expression resolving to a range of integer numbers. The following is an example of a valid integer variable declaration:
Dozen : integer 1..1+11; – Range 1 to 12
A float variable's domain consists of dimensioned intervals. Intervals intersect in their end points.
<float-variable> ::= float [[<dimension>]] <cardinality> range <float-range>
Here <dimension> specifies the measurement units of the domain values. <cardinality> is an expression resolving to positive integer number that specifies the number of intervals the domain set consists of. <float-range> is the domain set. It shall resolve to a range of real numbers. When the result is dimensionless the range bounds are assumed to be specified in the units of the variable dimension. Otherwise the dimension specified shall be compatible with one of the variable. The following are examples of a valid declarations:
Temperature : float [°C] 10 range -10..120;
The variable Temperature is measured in °C, it has the domain set -10°C..120°C split into 10 intervals.
Velocity : float [m/s] 5 range 0..20 [mph];
The variable Velocity is measured in m/s, it has the domain set 0..8.938888 m/s in 5 intervals.
A linguistic set variable has a dimensioned domain represented by a set of linguistic terms. Each linguistic term, also called linguistic variable, is a fuzzy subset of the domain.
<linguistic-set-variable> ::= real [[<dimension>]]
<dimension> specifies the measurement units of the domain values. Examples of valid linguistic set variables declarations:
Angle : real; Power : real [W];
The terms of an input linguistic set variable are declared in a fuzzify block:
<fuzzify-block> ::= fuzzify <identifier> <linguistic-set> end_fuzzify <linguistic-set> ::= <linguistic-term>; [<linguistic-set>] <linguistic-term> ::= term <identifier> := <domain-set>
Here <identifier> following the keyword fuzzify is the name of the input linguistic set variable being which linguistic terms are being defined. Only one block is allowed per variable. <identifier> following the keyword term specifies the name of the term. This name can appear where a variable subset is expected. <domain-set> shall resolve either to a real subset or to a real value. The given dimension shall be compatible with one of the variable. The following example illustrates definition of the linguistic terms for the variable T declared as:
T : real [°C];
Linguistic terms:
fuzzify T term Chill := (-10,1)(-4,0); -- °C is assumed term Cold := ( 11,1)(17,0) [°C]; term Tepid := ( 3, 0)( 8,1)(21,1)(28,0) [°C]; term Warm := ( 15,0)(21,1)(29,1)(35,0) [°C]; end_fuzzify
The terms of an output: linguistic set variable are declared in a defuzzify block:
<defuzzify-block> ::= defuzzify <identifier> <output-linguistic-set> end_defuzzify <output-linguistic-set> ::= { <linguistic-term> | method : <defuzzify-method> | default := <domain-value> | accu : <method> }; [<output-linguistic-set>] <defuzzify-method> ::= { coa | cog | cogs | lm | rm }
Here <identifier> following the keyword defuzzify is the name of the output linguistic set variable. Only one block is allowed per variable. <identifier> following the keyword term specifies the name of the term. This name can appear where a variable subset is expected. <domain-set> shall resolve either to a real subset or to a real value. When it is dimensionless, it is assumed to be specified in the dimension units of the variable. Otherwise the dimension give shall be compatible with one of the variable. <defuzzify-method> specifies the defuzzification method to be applied. It may appear only once:
The default value is introduced by the keyword default. It is used when the defuzzification fails. The value can be specified either as an expression resolved to a real value. The value when dimensionless assumes the dimension of the variable. The keyword nc (no change) indicates that defuzzification fault should not change the value. The optional accumulation method specification is defined by <method>. The only legal value is max, because all others are incompatible with the possibility theory. The following example illustrates definition of the linguistic terms for the variable Power declared above:
defuzzify Power term Low := (-100.0, 1)(10.0, 0); – W is assumed term Zero := 0 W; – Singleton value term Safe_Range := 1..2 [hp]; – Converted to W as necessary term High := (800, 0)(2000, 0)[W]; method : COG; – Using Center of Gravity default := 0 W; – What to do when defuzzification fails end_defuzzify
<predicate> is an expression involving a predicate variable and a constant using a set-theoretic or comparison operations. The following is an example of a predicate:
Power is in Safe_Range
Predicates form a lattice. They can be further combined using the operations and, ⋀, not, ¬, or, ⋁, xor and also appear in order brackets (). Other methods are infeasible in the possibility theory:
<predicate-expression> ::= { <predicate> | <predicate-expression>{ and | or | xor | ⋀ | ⋁ }<predicate-expression> | { not | ¬ }<predicate-expression> | (<predicate-expression>) }
The following example represents a <predicate-expression>:
Power is in Safe_Range and Power < 200 W
The language defines prefix, dyadic, postfix and bracket operations. The operations are executed from left to the right and associated according to their precedence. Operations with higher precedence take their operands first.
Prefix operations appear before the operand. They are:
Operation | Precedence | Code point |
Description |
+x | 6 | Unary plus | |
-x | 6 | Unary minus | |
abs x | 6 | Absolute value | |
not x | 6 | Logical not and set-complement | |
¬x | 6 | 00AC_{16} | Logical not |
not in x | 6 | Set-complement, allowed only after the dyadic operation is |
Unary + and - cannot appear after the following operations without brackets: +, -, abs, *, /, **. For example the following expressions are illegal:
2++2 – Illegal, must be 2+(+2) 5.0**-2 – Illegal, must be 5.0**(-2) - -3.0 – Illegal, must be -(-3.0)
Unary abs cannot appear before **. For example the following expression is illegal:
abs(-2)**2 – Should be disambiguated as (abs (-2))**2 or as abs ((-2)**2)
Unary not in may appear only after is in the expressions like:
Pressure is not in 1..200 [Pa]
Which is an equivalent to:
not (Pressure in 1..200 [Pa])
Dyadic operations have two operands and appear between them. The following table lists the dyadic operations and their precedence:
Operation | Precedence | Code point |
Description |
x and y | 0 | Logical and or set intersection | |
x ⋀ y | 0 | 22C0_{16} | Logical and |
x or y | 0 | Logical or or set union, the operands must be elements or sets | |
x ⋁ y | 0 | 22C1_{16} | Logical or |
x xor y | 0 | Logical xor or set difference, equivalent to (x and not(y)) or (not(x) and y) | |
x in y | 1 | Subset test operands can be elements, sets, one of them can be a variable | |
x is y | 1 | Equivalent to x in y | |
x is in y | 1 | Equivalent to x in y | |
x not in y | 1 | Equivalent to both not(x in y) | |
x ⊆ y | 1 | 2286_{16} | Subset test, equivalent to x in y, with x is required to be a set or a variable |

x ⊉ y | 1 | 2289_{16} | Equivalent to not(y⊆x) |
x ∈ y | 1 | 2208_{16} | Member test, equivalent to x in y, with x is required to be an element or a variable |
x ∋ y | 1 | 220B_{16} | Equivalent to y∈x |
x ∉ y | 1 | 2209_{16} | Equivalent to not(x∈y) |
x ∌ y | 1 | 220C_{16} | Equivalent to not(y∈x) |
x = y | 1 | Equality | |
x /= y | 1 | Equivalent to not(x=y) | |
x ≠ y | 1 | 2260_{16} | Equivalent to not(x=y) |
x < y | 1 | Less | |
x <= y | 1 | Less or equal | |
x ≤ y | 1 | 2264_{16} | Less or equal |
x > y | 1 | Greater | |
x >= y | 1 | Greater or equal | |
x ≥ y | 1 | 2265_{16} | Greater or equal |
x ⋂ y | 2 | 22C2_{16} | Set intersection, the operands can be sets or elements |

x & y | 4 | Concatenation | |
x * y | 7 | Multiplication | |
x / y | 7 | Division | |
x ** y | 8 | Exponentiation | |
x . y | 11 | Component |
The lattice operations like and and or cannot be associated without brackets. For example, the following expression is illegal and must be disambiguated:
Power is Low and Power is High or Power is Zero
The following table illustrates legal and illegal associations of the lattice operations:
and | ⋀ | or | ⋁ | xor | ⋂ | ⋃ | |
and | + | + | - | - | - | + | + |
⋀ | + | + | - | - | - | + | + |
or | - | - | + | + | - | + | + |
⋁ | - | - | + | + | - | + | + |
xor | - | - | - | - | + | + | + |
⋂ | + | + | + | + | + | + | + |
⋃ | + | + | + | + | + | + | + |
The rule is that two operations of different semantics may not be associated when their results and operands are of the same type. The rationale is that the results of different associations shall be either same or else the expression can be disambiguated using the types of operands.
The operation ** cannot be associated without brackets. For example the following expression is illegal:
2**2**3 – Should be disambiguated as (2**2)**3 or as 2**(2**3)
Postfix operations appear after the operand:
Operation | Precedence | Description |
x^{<power>} | 8 | Power operation |
Power is a superscript integer with the syntax:
<power> ::= <superscript-decimal-integer> <superscript-decimal-integer> ::= [<superscript-sign>]<superscript-decimal-numeral> <superscript-decimal-numeral> ::= <superscript-decimal-digit>[<superscript-decimal-numeral>] <superscript-decimal-digit> ::= ^{0} | ^{1} | ^{2} | ^{3} | ^{4} | ^{5} | ^{6} | ^{7} | ^{8} | ^{9} <superscript-sign> ::= ^{+} | ^{-}
The power operation cannot be associated without brackets. For example the following expression is illegal:
2^{2 3} – Should be disambiguated as (2^{2})^{3} or as 2**2^{3}
Operation | Precedence | Example | Description |
(x) | - | (5+1)*2 | Ordering brackets |
(x,y) | - | (5,1) | Singleton composition |
x(y,z) | 8 | (1,0)(1,1)(10,1)(10,0) | Membership function composition |
x [y] | 3 | (2.0,0)(4.0,1)(5.0,0)[°C] | Scaling |
[x,y] | - | [1,20] | Interval, range composition |
Numeric operations are applied to the operands of constant numeric types.
The numeric arithmetical operations are prefix +, -, abs, dyadic +, -,*, /, **, postfix ^{<power>}.
An unary arithmetical operation (+, -, abs, ^{<power>}) yields the result of the same type as the operand. A dimensioned operand can be exponentiated only if it is not shifted (20°C is shifted.) Examples of unary operations:
5 m^{2} – 5 square meters abs (-4) – 4 2^{3} – 8
A dyadic arithmetical operation yields an integer (Integer) result if both operands are integers. Otherwise the result is of real (Real) type. Dimensioned operands must have compatible types. Shifted dimensioned constants can be multiplied and divided only by dimensionless constants. The second operand of ** shall be dimensionless. Further if the first operand has a dimension, it cannot be shifted and the second operand must be a non-negative integer (Integer).
Relational operations =, /=, ≠, >, <, <=, ≤, >=, ≥ are defined for all numeric types and yield a value of Truth_Value. When one operand is of real (Real) type, another is automatically converted to the same type. The dimensions of the operands after necessary conversions must be compatible. Examples of numeric relational operations:
5 m^{2} = 5 yd^{2} – 0 of Truth_Value: 5 square meters is not equal to 5 square yards 10 > 1 – 1 of Truth_Value
The membership tests operations are in, is, is in, ∈, ∉, not in with the left operand of a numeric type and the operations ∋, ∌ with the right operand of a numeric type. The operations in, is, is in, ∈ are equivalent. The operations not in, ∉ are equivalent and x∉y is identical to y∈x. The operation x∋y is identical to y∈x. The operation x∌y is identical to y∉x. The non-numeric operand is a set type. Operands are converted as follows:
After types conversion the numeric operand should have the same type and compatible dimension as the domain set of the set operand. The result of a membership operation is of Intuitionistic_Truth_Value. The examples of membership tests:
5 in [1,6] – [1:1] 1..5∋2 – same as above 6.0 not in (6.0,1) – [0:0] 6.0 m in (6,0)(6,1)(6,0)[m] – [1:0]
Round brackets () with two items compose a singleton. The first item is of numeric type, it identifies the domain set value. The second item is of Truth_Value. The singleton type is determined by the numeric type. Integer produces Integer_Singleton. Real does Real_Singleton. Examples of singletons:
(5,1) – Integer_Singleton, the value 5 with the truth value 1 (0.5 m, 0.5) – Real_Singleton, the value 0.5 meter with the truth value 0.5
Square brackets [] with two items and the operation ellipsis .. compose a range (or equivalently an interval). The first item / operand is the lower bound of the range. The second item / operand is the upper bound. When one item / operand is of real (Real) type, another is converted to the same type as necessary. After necessary conversions, the lower bound must be less or equal than the upper bound. The dimensions of bounds must be compatible. The result type is determined by the types of the bounds after applying necessary conversions. Integer bounds produce a result of Integer_Range. Real bounds do a result of Real_Range. Examples of ranges:
[1, 20] – Integer_Range range from 1 to 20 1..20 – Same as above [1 m, 20 m] – Real_Range 1..20 meter 1 m..20 m – Same as above
A numeric value in square brackets [] specified after a numeric multiplies the operand before the brackets. Shifted dimensioned operand can be multiplied and divided only by a dimensionless one. The result has Real. Examples of scaling numeric constants:
1 [2] – 2 (of Real) 2.0 [°C] – 2 Celsius degree 1 m [1/s] – 1 m/s
Logical operations are and, ⋀, not, ¬, or, ⋁, xor applied to the operands of logical types Truth_Value and Intuitionistic_Truth_Value. The result of logical not, ¬ has the same type as the operand. For the dyadic operations and, ⋀, or, ⋁, xor if one operand has the type Intuitionistic_Truth_Value, then another is converted to the same type. The result a dyadic logical operation is same as the type of the operands after necessary conversions applied. Examples of logical operations:
1 and 0.6 – 0.6 of Truth_Value 1 and [1:0.6] – Intuitionistic_Truth_Value with the possibility 1 and the necessity 0.6 [0.3:0.6] or [0.7:0.0] – Intuitionistic_Truth_Value with the possibility 0.7 and the necessity 0.6 not [1:0.6] – Intuitionistic_Truth_Value with the possibility 0.4 and the necessity 0
Set operations are applied to the operands representing sets:
Lattice operations and, ⋂, not, ¬, or, ⋃, xor when applied to sets produce a set.
The result of not has the type determined by the operand's type:
For the dyadic operations and, ⋂, or, ⋃, xor the following types conversions are automatically applied:
Dimensions of the operands of and, ⋂, or, ⋃, xor shall be compatible. The result of an operation is the type of the operands after necessary conversions. Examples of lattice operations:
1..5 and 2..4 – Integer set containing 2, 3, 4 (the type is Integer_Set) not (2, 1) – Integer set containing all integer values except 2 (the type is Integer_Set) 1..5 and (1.0, 0.5) – Real set containing 1 with the truth level 0.5 (the type is Real_Set) high or low – Fuzzy domain subset containing the linguistic variables high and low (the type Domain_Subset) high or low^[1.0:0] – Intuitionistic domain subset containing the linguistic variables high and low with the possibility 1 and the linguistic variable high with the necessity 1 (the type Intuitionistic_Domain_Subset)
Relational operations =, /=, ≠ are defined for all set types and yield a value of Intuitionistic_Truth_Value. Sets equality x = y is defined as x in y and y in x. Inequality x /= y is defined as not(x=y). Thus both are commutative. The operands are automatically converted as described for the operations and, or, xor. Dimensions of the operands must be compatible. Examples of relational operations:
1..5 = [0.5, 1] – [1:0] (uncertain) 1..5 /= 10..11 – [1:1] (true)
The membership tests operations are in, is, is in, ∈, ∉, not in with the left operand of a numeric type and the operations ∋, ∌ with the right operand of a numeric type. For detailed description see numeric membership tests.
Subset relation operations are in, is, is in, ⊆, ⊇, ⊈, ⊉, not in. The operations in, is, is in, ⊆ are equivalent. The operations ⊈, not in are equivalent and x⊈y is identical to not(x⊆y). The operation x⊇y is identical to y⊆x. The operation x⊉y is identical to y⊈x. Example of subset operations:
2..3 ⊆ 1..5 – [1:1] (true)
The ternary operation x(y,z) composes a fuzzy set by specifying its membership function per point. The operands in brackets shall compose a singleton. The singleton specifies the rightmost point of the membership function. The first operand shall denote a set of either of the following types:
The following type conversions are applied to the operands:
The result of the operation has the type of the left operand after necessary conversions. The dimensions of the left operand and the singleton shall be compatible. Further, the singleton operand shall specify the membership function for a point greater or equal to the rightmost point in the left operand. The membership function of the result is extrapolated to the right using the truth value specified. When the left operand is a singleton, then the truth value it specifies is extrapolated to the left. It is allowed to specify several values of the membership function in one point. In which case the result is intuitionistic in these points. Examples of membership composition:
(1 m,0)(5 m,1)(10 m,0) – Triangular real set (the type is Real_Set) (1,0)(1,1)(10,1)(10,0) – Rectangular membership function (the type Integer_Set) (1.1,0.6)(1.1,0.2)(1.1,1)(1.1,0.3) – Pulse membership function constant 0.6 left of 1.1 and 0.3 right of 1.1. In 1.1 it goes down to 0.2 and up to 1 (the type is Real_Set)
The dyadic operation ^ yields α-cut of a set. The left operand is of one of the set types. The right operand is a truth value of either Truth_Value or Intuitionistic_Truth_Value. The left operand is automatically converted:
The result of the operation has the type of the left operand after necessary conversions. Examples of α-cuts:
Power is (low^0.5 or High) – Here the linguistic variable low is cut at the level of 0.5. The result is of Domain_Subset, to which the linguistic variable high is added. Power is 1..20[W]^[1:0.5] – The value has rectangular membership functions for possibility and necessity. The possibility rectangle has the level 1. The necessity one does 0.5
A numeric value in square brackets [] specified after an operand of set type multiplies the elements of the set. The set operand may have one of the following types:
The following type conversions are applied to the set operand:
The result of the operation has the type of the left operand after necessary conversions. Shifted dimensioned operand can be multiplied and divided only by a dimensionless one. The result of scaling has the type of the set operand. Examples of scaling set constants:
1..2 [m] – 1 m .. 2 m (of Real_Range) (2.0,0)(4.0,1)(5.0,0)[°C] – A triangular set of Celsius degree (of Real_Range)
String operations are defined on the types Character and String.
The operation & takes two operands of either Character or String and yields a String result. Example of using concatenation:
'a' & "bcde" – String abcde
Relational operations =, /=, ≠, >, <, <=, ≤, >=, ≥ are defined on operands of Character and String types. They yield a value of Truth_Value type. When one operand is of real (Real) type, another is automatically converted to the same type. The dimensions of the operands after necessary conversions must be compatible. Examples of numeric relational operations:
'b' > "" – 1 of Truth_Value "abc" > "abcdef" – 1 of Truth_Value
Predicate operations are applied to predicates and predicate variables.
The relational operations on predicate variables are =, /=, ≠, >, <, <=, ≤, >=, ≥, in, is, is in, ⊆, ⊇, ⊈, ⊉, ∈, ∉, ∋, ∌, not in. One of the operands shall be a predicate variable. Other operand depends on the operation:
The non-variable operand is automatically converted as follows:
After necessary conversions the domain set of the non-variable operand and its dimension shall match one of the variable. The result of a relational operation is a predicate. The equality = and the inequality /=, ≠ are commutative.
The inequality /=, ≠ is defined through equality as not(x=y).
Examples of predicates:
Power is low – The variable Power is contained in the linguistic variable low Zero in Power – Power contains the linguistic variable Zero Power >= 10 W – Power is contained in ]10 W ,∞ W[ 10 W <= Power – Same as above Power = 0 W – Power is 0 W (It is contained in [0 W,0 W]) Power = Zero – Power contains and is contained in Zero
Lattice operations and, ⋂, or, ⋃, xor, not, ¬ when applied to predicate produce a predicate. Examples of lattice operations on predicates:
not (Power is low) – Equivalent to Power is not contained in low Power is high and Pressure >= 1 kPa
The operation not, ¬ when applied to a predicate variable produces its complement. Examples of predicate variable complements:
(not Power) is low – Power is contained in low Zero is not Power – Zero is not contained in Power, i.e. it is contained in Power
Because the law of excluded middle does not hold, a realization of variable does not necessarily defines one of its complement.
The component operation . is applied to the identifiers to specify a qualified name. The left identifier is a predicate variable. The right identifier is the domain value. Example of a qualified name:
Power.Low – Low of Power
An IFCL program consists of a function block which has the following syntax:
<IFCL-program> ::= function_block <identifier> <program-body> end_function_block <program-body> ::= <program-block> [<program-body>] <program-block> ::= { <input-variables-block> | <output-variables-block> | <fuzzify-block> | <defuzzify-block> | <rules-block> }
The program has the name specified by an <identifier> following the keyword function_block. It ends with the keyword end_function_block. The program consists of a number of <program-block> items. The following is an example of a valid program:
function_block Test var_input Distance : real [m]; Angle : real [°]; I : integer 1..20; (* Integer variable range 1..20 *) Color : nominal (red, blue, white); T : real [°C]; V : float [°C] 10 range 1..2*10; end_var var_output Power : Real [W]; Valve : Real; end_var fuzzify T term Chill := (-10,1)(-4,0); -- °C is assumed term Cold := ( 11,1)(17,0) [°C]; term Tepid := ( 3,0)( 8,1)(21,1)(28,0) [°C]; term Warm := ( 15,0)(21,1)(29,1)(35,0) [°C]; term Hot := ( 25,0)(28,1) [°C]; end_fuzzify defuzzify Valve term Open := 1; term Closed := 0; default := 0; method : CoA; end_defuzzify fuzzify Distance term too_far := (-5,1)( 0,0); term zero := (-5,0)( 0,1)( 5,0); term close := ( 0,0)( 5,1)(10,0); term medium := ( 5,0)(10,1)(22,0); term far := (10,0)(22,1); end_fuzzify fuzzify Angle term neg_big := (-50,1)(-5,0); term neg_small := (-50,0)(-5,1)( 0,0); term zero := ( -5,0)( 0,1)( 5,0); term pos_small := ( 0,0)( 5,1)(50,0); term pos_big := ( 5,0)(50,1); end_fuzzify defuzzify Power term neg_high := -27; term neg_medium := -12; term zero := 0; term pos_medium := 12; term pos_high := 27; accu : MAX; method : CoGS; default := 0; end_defuzzify ruleblock Rules and : MIN; if T is cold then Valve is closed; end_ruleblock ruleblock No1 and : MIN; rule 1: if distance is far and angle is zero then power is pos_medium; rule 2: if distance is far and angle is neg_small then power is pos_high; rule 3: if distance is far and angle is neg_big then power is pos_medium; rule 4: if distance is medium and angle is neg_small then power is neg_medium; rule 5: if distance is close and angle is pos_small then power is pos_medium; rule 6: if distance is zero and angle is zero then power is zero; end_ruleblock end_function_block |
<rules-block> ::= rule_block <identifier> <rules-block-body> end_rule_block <rules-block-body> ::= <rule>; [<rules-block-body>] <rule> ::= { <accumulation-method> | <activation-method> | <intersection-method> | <production-rule> | <union-method> } <accumulation-method> ::= accu : <method> <activation-method> ::= act : <method> <intersection-method> ::= and : <method> <union-method> ::= or : <method> <method> ::= { asum | bdif | bsum | max | min | prod }
The only allowed methods for <accumulation-method> and <union-method> is max. The only allowed method for activation-method and intersection-method is min. Other methods are infeasible in the possibility theory.
<production-rule> ::= [rule <rule-number>:] if <antecedent> then <consequent> <rule-number> ::= <integer> <antecedent> ::= <predicate-expression> <consequent> ::= <predicate-expression>
When <rule-number> is specified in a rule block all production rules of the block shall be numbered. The numbers may not repeat and shall compose a contiguous range beginning at 1. When the rules block has numbered rules, when stored in a training set these numbers are the numbers of the training examples in the set.
