Model-free adaptive (MFA) control is an entirely new field of automatic control theory and technology that does not require process models; it is novel and effective ideas and methods to solve complex industrial process control. Glass furnace is one type of typical industrial furnace; it is a complex and all- conditioned process. The original control program is using the traditional PID controller. This paper describes a glass furnace control system based on MFA controller to replace the PID control method. The simulation module was developed in the MATLAB environment. The simulation results have demonstrated that the controller can better realize the control for glass furnace and overcome to some extent the shortcomings of conventional algorithms.
