Paper Abstract

Burning pulverized coal in power boilers causes considerable emission of atmospheric pollution. In order to decrease it the combustion process itself has been modified, however at cost of side effects like: increased level of unburned coal particles in the ashes. There are tens of burners in a single power boiler and emission level measurements are made in flue gas duct, so the control based on such averaged and heavily delayed values often results ineffective. The neural controller of the pulverized coal burner attempts to resolve these problems. The clue is utilization of fiber-optic system for monitoring of chosen zone of flame developed in Department of Electronics of Technical University of Lublin. The article contains description of controlled system and optical fiber measurement system, an idea of the controller as well as some results obtained for experimental burner.
