The paper describes aspects of an on-going research programme in collaboration with AvestaPolarit (UK) Ltd, Sheffield, Corus Group plc, Rotherham and Eurotherm, Worthing. The work presented here involves the design and development of a neural network control strategy for continuously operated high temperature gas-fired industrial furnaces. At present, a bilinear control strategy is already applied routinely to the furnace. The results in this paper present the development of different neural network controllers compared to the bilinear controller.
