We introduce an optimization of fuzzy set-fuzzy systems based on IG (Information Granules). The proposed fuzzy model implements system structure and parameter identification by means of IG and GAs. The concept of information granulation was coped with to enhance the abilities of structural optimization of the fuzzy model. Granulation of information realized with C-Means clustering helps determine the initial parameters of the fuzzy model such as the initial apexes of the membership functions in the premise part and the initial values of polynomial functions in the consequence part of the fuzzy rules. The initial parameters are adjusted effectively with the help of the GAs and the standard least square method. To optimally identify the structure and the parameters of the fuzzy model we exploit GAs with successive tuning method to simultaneously search the structure and the parameters within one individual. We also consider the variant generation-based evolution to adjust the rate of identification of the structure and the parameters in successive tuning method. The proposed model is evaluated with the performance of the conventional fuzzy model.
