Municipal solid waste combustion (MSWC) plant operators are currently under an increasing pressure to optimize the economic performance of their plants. A route with high potential for optimizing this performance is by improving the performance of the MSWC plant combustion control system, which typically is of the PID-type. In this paper, motivated by the industrial need to improve the overall economic MSWC plant performance, a model based approach is taken to optimize this control system…

Improved Economic Performance of Municipal Solid Waste Combustion Plants by Model Based Combustion Control

The combustion of municipal solid waste (MSW) is used for its inertisation, reduction of its volume and the conversion of its energy content into heat and/or electricity. Operation and control of

Nonlinear Model Predictive Control of Municipal Solid Waste Combustion Plants

Combustion of municipal solid waste (MSW; = household waste) is used to reduce its volume and to produce energy. It is performed in furnaces at large industrial plants for which the control problem
