Modeling and control of engine systems are vital due to wide range of their applications. As it is obvious stability is the minimum requirement in any control system, however the proof of stability is not trivial especially in the case of nonlinear systems. One of the most active research areas in field of internal combustion engine (IC engine) is control of the fuel ratio. The strategies for control of engines are classified into two main groups: classical and non-classical methods, where the classical methods used the conventional control theory and non-classical methods used the artificial intelligence theory such as fuzzy logic, neural networks and/or neurofuzzy. One of the best nonlinear robust controllers which can be used in uncertainty nonlinear systems is sliding mode controller (SMC). Chattering phenomenon is the most important challenge in this controller. Fuzzy logic and neuro control have been applied successfully in many applications. Therefore stable control of an internal combustion engine is challenging because it has uncertain dynamic parameters. This research presents a design fuzzy sliding mode controller with improved in sliding mode controller which offers a model-free sliding mode controller. The fuzzy sliding mode controller is designed as a 49 rules Mamdani’s error-based fuzzy sliding-like equivalent part instead of nonlinear dynamic equation of equivalent part. Various performance indices like the minimum error, trajectory, disturbance rejection, and chattering control are used for comparison.
