In this report, the practical application of the Gradient Method to boiler efficiency control is treated both experimentally and theoretically. The experimental studies were sucessfully done by using a mono-tube boiler equipped with a digital computer which was programmed to measure the boiler efficiency and keep it maximum automatically. Also, the kinetics of the above optimizing system is analyzed and its stable region is calculated as a function of control parameters. These theoretical calculations agree with the experimental results under the assumption of a single capacity lag model for the boiler. And, many other practical problems affecting the performance are pointed out and discussed.
