Abstract

For improving the load-following capacity of existing grate boiler units, an MPC control concept based on the combustion power soft-sensor is developed. Because the combustion power estimation has a very quick response to the primary air flow input, the load-following speed of the boiler control system will be improved considerably. The proposed MPC strategy is tested with the BioPower 5 CHP plant data and the results are presented, analyzed, and discussed.
