The most accurate and up-to-date approach to modeling biomass pyrolysis is to adopt the distributed activation energy model (DAEM). In this study, a pattern search method to be used for the determination of DAEM kinetic parameters from the nonisothermal thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) data of biomass has been introduced. The method has been applied to the nonisothermal TGA data of peanut shell sample, and DAEM kinetic parameters of biomass samples have been determined. Calculated model results from determined kinetic parameters have been compared with nonisothermal TGA data of biomass.
