The application of the FC concepts has increased significantly in different fields of science and engineering, because FC captures properties that classical integer order models neglect. This paper studies a heat diffusion system, that is described through the fractional operator s 0.5 , under the control of a fractional nonlinear algorithm. The tuning of the algorithm follows the optimization of performance control indices. The results demonstrate the good performance of the proposed controller. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
