The fundamental concept of feedback to control dynamic systems has played a major role in many areas of engineering. Increases in complexity and more stringent requirements have introduced new challenges for control systems. This paper presents an introduction to and appreciation for intelligent control systems, their application areas, and justifies their need. Specific problem related to automated human comfort control is discussed. Some analytical derivations related to neural networks and fuzzy optimal control as elements of proposed intelligent control systems, along with experimental results, are presented. A brief glossary of common terminology used in this area is included.
