Slag prediction model
Electric arc furnace process
In the steel industry, there are some parameters that are difficult to measure online due to technical difficulties. In these scenarios, soft-sensors, which are online tools that aim forecasting of certain variables, play an indispensable role for quality control. In this investigation, different soft sensors are developed to address the problem of predicting the slag quantity and composition in an electric arc furnace process. The results provide evidence that the models perform better for simulated data than for real data. They also reveal higher accuracy in predicting the composition of the slag than the measured quantity of the slag.
