Biomass, combustion, control, environmental


Biomass combustion is one of the most versatile and spread heat source for residential usage in the world. Nowadays a lot of new combustion devices in developed countries are controlled automatically. The control algorithm used in these devices is crucial in attaining optimal service economy with minimal environmental impact. This contribution deals with two ways how to implement proper control algorithms to small and medium scale boilers. The first method is by applying modern methods of controller development and the second by adapting tested algorithms from full-scale boilers. The used algorithms are implemented and tested on experimental devices based on common market products.
