This paper presents the assembly and the performance of a fuzzy logic control system in regulating a laboratory continuous crossflow grain dryer. With fuzzy control, similar outlet moisture contents and lower outlet breakage susceptibility of corn were obtained as compared to the manually controlled dryer operation. the results verified that drying‐induced corn breakage could be reduced through the application of fuzzy logic control. Like the corn drying process, many food processes are difficult to control automatically with conventional control techniques due to their complex nature. Fuzzy logic control provides an attractive solution for control of those processes.
