Control of Boilers for Thermoelectric Power Plants by Means of a Statistical Model

  • Hideo Nakamura
Part of the Statistics for Engineering and Physical Science book series (ISS)


This chapter introduces a successful application of the optimal regulator to steam temperature control of thermal electric power plants, in which the state equation for the control system design is derived based on a statistical model.
