Combining high resolution NIR furnace vision with Expert System III model based furnace control
Wednesday 18th September 11:45 - 12:05
Glass Service, a.s. (GS), has added to its Model Predictive Control (MPC) toolbox a Proprietary Software to monitor the batch coverage within a melter which will correlates this image to the control of the melter to improve the furnace stability and glass quality. Further steps include the GS MPC control of the batch charging and the combustion process using the MPC.
The new GS Expert System Software ES 4.0 uses high resolution cameras with infra-red capabilities to give us an automatic batch analysis and smart software to interpret the batch coverage. The batch coverage is modeled together with the other multi-input and multi-output process variables that can become a more thorough control option to increase the furnace stability and to improve glass quality. The GS Expert System can correlate this automatic batch coverage analysis with the crown temperature changes by the Infrared Image Analysis into the ES 4.0 control.
