In this work, we propose the design and implementation of a parallel-structured fuzzy logic controller with integral action and anti-windup. The Grey Wolf Optimization (GWO) optimization technique is used to optimize fuzzy rules, which allows for the complicated algebraic ideas of type 1 fuzzy logic algorithms to be reduced to straightforward numerical equations for FPGA target implementation. The techniques for operating a geared DC motor are optimized by the membership function structure of our controller's data propagation. Our proposed controller was implemented in Xilinx System Generator (XSG) and co-simulated on hardware and software with VIVADO and XSG tools.
