Modelling of Control Systems for Superheated Steam Temperature


s. 32-41 DOI:


Control system for superheated steam in power boiler is presented in the paper. The boiler is a controlled system of steam temperature, it is a complex assembly of elements termed steam superheaters. Properties of these elements are presented in the paper. The results of simulation tests carried out with a suggested model are given. Conclusions have been drawn and the course of further research has been determined on the basis of existing publications and authors’ own practice.
