    This paper introduces the application of an intelligent control system for a dryer. It is based on the fuzzy set theory and the well known PID control principle. This hybrid Fuzzy PID controller is for an industrial steam heated dryer process. The dryer is to maintain the output tobacco moisture content at a certain value for further mixing process. The control problem investigated is difficult because the process has significant dead-time, is time variant and also it is non-linear. The controller is implemented on the Omron Sysmate Fuzzy Support Software C500-SU981-E, Fuzzy Logic Unit C200H-FZ001.
