In this study, hydroxy (HHO) dry cell with different plate combination performances in terms of current and temperature were experimentally investigated and modeled with Rule-Based Mamdani-Type Fuzzy (RBMTF) modeling technique. Input parameters plate number and time; output parameters current, temperature were described by RBMTF if-the rules. The dimensions of the plates were          9x9 cm2, 10x10 cm2 and 11x11 cm2. Current and temperature were measured for the different plate combination. Tap water was used in the experiments and the system was set to 5 minutes. For each combination, new cells were prepared. Experimental data which obtained for current and temperature according to combination and time were used in the training step. Numerical parameters of input and output variables were fuzzificated as linguistic variables: very very low (L1), very low (L2), low (L3), negative medium (L4), medium (L5), positive medium (L6), high (L7), very high (L8) and very very high (L9) linguistic classes. With the linguistic variables used, rules were obtained for this system. The comparison between experimental data and RBMTF is done by using statistical methods like the coefficient of multiple determinations (R2). The actual values and RBMTF results indicated that RBMTF can be successfully used in HHO dry cell.
