In this study, semi-positive let-off system in a conventional weaving loom was controlled using conventional, PID (Proportional Integral Derivative) and fuzzy logic based control systems. To do this, servomotor was installed into the let-off unit of the loom using PID controller, additionally fuzzy logic based let-off control was realised. Experimentally obtained warp tension values for each control methods were compared. According to the results, maximal tension values for the conventional, PID and fuzzy logic controlled systems were found to be 53, 45 and 35 cN, respectively. As a result, it is determined that the least warp tension interval and mean warp tension value are in let-off system controlled by fuzzy logic.
