A Combustion Control System for a Refuse Incineration Plant

  • Kaoru Hirota

Abstract

As one field of application of fuzzy theory, fuzzy control has recently achieved great successes[1]. Since fuzzy control was first applied to cement kiln operation in 1980, many examples of its application have been reported, including process control[2–4], a water treatment plant[5], a steel mill[6] and chemical plants[7, 8]. The power of fuzzy control stems from the fact that it allows the vague but superior decision making ability of human beings to be implemented with a rule base, without need for a rigorous numerical model. The first application of fuzzy control was to a cement kiln. The reason that it then became widely applied in process control is that it has this advantage which makes it suitable for automating plant operations.
