Funding: AIF (Arbeitsgemeinschaft industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen "Otto von Guericke" e.V.), 174.000 € (of 360.000 €)
Duration: 01/2006 - 12/2008
Project Description: With help of neural nets, a waste incinerator is controlled in a predictive way. As the implicit model of the waste incinerator we use a closed SOM, whose activities are decoded by a downstream feed-forward net. In consequence, the predictive values of the control can be calculated. This is a new approach in the area modelling and simulation; in particular, it is the first industrial application of the theory of Computing with Activities.
