Abstract: The objective of this paper is to study various control techniques in order to maintain constant ambient temperature by controlling the position of gas solenoid valve and expansion valve that control the volume of gas flow to the burner and volume of cool air flow into the room. In order to control the room temperature conventional P, PI, PID, model reference control (MRC), fuzzy logic control (FLC) and internal model control (IMC) are designed and implemented. The comparative study of these controllers is presented in order to identify the suitable controller.
