Machines have comforted human beings in every walk of life such as scientifically, economically as well as socially. Machines consists of immotile as well certain rotating parts which combine to reduce human efforts into well-founded and pertinent work for example pulleys, blenders,, compressors etc. For every advanced technology of machines its different parameters are needed to be controlled for a competent, productive and faultless system. This paper aims on careful investigation of two advanced type of approaches for controlling speed of universal motor. These two approaches namely Fuzzy technique and ANFIS technique are employed as powerful mechanisms for varying speed based on output graph of step response versus time. A comparative evaluation is then done on the basis of two most important parameters of machines named as percentage overshoot and settling time. Comparative analysis aids in determining the best methodology to be applied in everyday applications for producing unerring, authenticated and unimpeachable systems.
