Gasification of several types of biomass has been conducted in a fluidized
bed gasifier at atmospheric pressure with steam as the fluidizing
medium. In order to obtain the gasification profiles for each type
of biomass, an artificial neural network model has been developed
to simulate this gasification processes. Model-predicted gas production
rates in this biomass gasification processes were consistent with
the experimental data. Therefore, the gasification profiles generated
by neural networks are considered to have properly reflected the
real gasification process of a biomass. Gasification profiles identified
by neural network suggest that gasification behavior of arboreal
types of biomass is significantly different from that of herbaceous
ones. (C) 2000 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.
