Artificial Neural Networks is considered as one of the successful machine learning technique to model expert behavioral systems and it is competent enough to minimize human efforts in manual prediction. This research anticipates the applicability of the Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Modeling approach in the Dielectric Loss prediction. Prediction of Dielectric loss parameter has wide range of applicability in electric circuits of radio, and television systems. The difficulty lies in Dielectric loss parameter is its high dependency on the nature of dielectric material and at different frequency. Doped and undoped Terbium Manganite is chosen as dielectric material to perform comparative analysis. The Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Inference System, with its inherent knowledge representation mechanism, nonlinear behavior and adaptive control property can replace almost all basic predictor neural networks. This hybrid model establishes the superior capability in prediction over Feed forward backpropagation networks. Finally an analysis is made statistically between Hybrid learning and back-propagation learning mechanism in Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy inference system to achieve best suited learning algorithm in dielectric loss prediction.

Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Systems, Dielectric Loss, Doping, Tolerance, Transfer Functions, Semiconductor

This research initially aims to cater efficient applicability of Neuro Fuzzy Networks in the diversified province of Semiconductor in predicting Dielectric Loss parameter with respect to different temperature at different frequencies. The primary behavioral analysis is made on the basis of prediction accuracy percentage, achieved by Artificial Neural Networks with their Forward Chaining mechanism to predict dielectric loss parameter of doped and undoped Terbium Manganites. The research significantly shows, enhanced performance of ANFIS with respect to Feed-forward back propagation networks at initial stages; later ANFIS with Hybrid learning rule is proven as well suited dielectric loss predictor in the domain of semiconductor doping. The comparative analysis made for doped and undoped Terbium Manganites at Tolerance 0.005 Hybrid Learning Algorithm of ANFIS performs better than other two approaches. But at tolerance level up to 0.01 both the learning Mechanism of ANFIS performs equally; hence the superiority of Hybrid learning rule in lower tolerance of ANFIS is clearly visible over the statistical comparisons.
