One of the well-known deficiencies of most modern control methods (H2, H, and L1 designs) is that they attempt to represent multiple criteria with scalar cost functions. Hence, in practice the (static or dynamic) weights in the scalar cost function must be determined by an iterative process in order to satisfy the multiple objectives. This paper develops a fuzzy algorithm for selecting the weights in a linear quadratic Gaussian (LQG) cost functional such that the constraints on the variances of the system are satisfied. This problem is denoted as a variance constrained LQG problem. Variations of this problem are considered in the existing literature using crisp logic. Numerical experiments show that when both the input and output variances are constrained, the fuzzy algorithm converges faster and tends to be much more robust to new systems or constraints than the crisp algorithms
