Fuzzy Model Reference Learning Control (FMRLC) is an efficient technique for the control of non linear process. In this paper, a FMRLC is applied in to a non linear spherical tank system. First, the mathematical model of the spherical tank level system is derived and simulation runs are carried out by considering the FMRLC in a closed loop. A similar test runs are also carried out with Neural Network based IMC PI and conventional ZN based PI-mode for comparison analysis. The results clearly indicate that the incorporation of FMRLC in the control loop in spherical tank system provides a good tracking performance than the NNIMC and conventional PI mode.
