Circulating Fluidized Bed Boiler is a complicated control object with big delay, multi-variable and strong coupling, especially the combustion in it. It is too difficult to build an exact mathematic model to describe the combustion process. And it is hard to get ideal control effect with normal controller. This paper presents the overview of advanced control techniques in thermal process control of Circulating Fluidized Bed Boiler, such as decoupling control, predictive control and fuzzy control. The future of advanced control research and application is also discussed.
