A Study of Biomass Material Pretreatment by Microwave-Based Heating
This study discussed the application of microwave-based heating for the pretreatment of biomass material, and selected Pennisetum purpureum for pretreatment. The Taguchi method was used to plan optimization experiments for pretreatment parameter levels, and measured the dynamic responses. With lower frequency of experiments, this study analyzed and determined a parameter combination in which Pennisetum purpureum can be rapidly heated to 190°C. The experimental results indicate an eight-order ARX model (Auto-Regressive eXogeneous) was representative of actual system performance, and the fit was 99.13%.
