Business. Innovation. Technology

Scientists of the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology, have been working on applications of artificial intelligence in the power sector for 20 years. The product of their efforts, the SILO system, is in use both in Poland and abroad. As the only solution from Poland, the system was exhibited in the “Energy Best Practices Area” pavilion at EXPO 2017 in Kazakhstan.

“Viewed from the theory of control and regulation, power boiler combustion as a whole is a difficult process because it is highly non-linear, with many interacting variables,” explains Prof. dr hab. inż. Konrad Świrski [D.Sc. Eng]. “To align all classical regulation systems to make a boiler work very well under any load or on coal of any grade or in any configuration of the working devices is a great challenge indeed.”
