Surface temperature control of a thin aluminium plate were investigated using closed loop control approach implemented using inverse problem. The one-dimensional model with periodic boundary condition was solved using the Laplace transform and both direct problem and inverse problem transfer functions were obtained. The resulting transfer functions were expanded using Zero-Pole expansion to obtain a finite order polynomial transfer function. Simulation results for closed loop control using fractional controllers (FOPIλ, FOPD and FOPIDμ) were evaluated.
