This article addresses the design of a robust H2 state feedback controller (H2-SFC) for the effective temperature control in the heating zone of the steel slab reheating furnace. Based on the available field data and system identification procedures, a mathematical model of the heating zone is derived, which presents autoregressive-moving average with exogenous input (ARMAX) structure and fourth order. The design of an H2-SFC controller for the effective control of the heating zone temperature of the slab reheating furnace under study is developed. The simulation results of the designed control system showed its high effectiveness compared to the conventional PID control. View Full-Text
