Paper Abstract

Electric Power Research Institute has conducted a survey of recent advances and trends in Japanese thermal power plants during summer 1991. This paper summarizes the survey, and introduces success stories and lessons learned in Japan. The survey has found many applications and wide-spread implementations of fuzzy logic technology such as: fuzzy-logic schedulers for plant transient operations, fuzzy-expert tuners of dynamic control systems, and fuzzy- algorithmic operation guidance systems for major plant equipment. It has been also found that applications of fuzzy logic technology caused drastic changes in functions of human operators in the loop [man-machine interface], database management and preventive plant maintenance, and control room design.
