Fuzzy arithmetic, Uncertain models, Furnace system,


Energy system in power plants is one of the most frequently mentioned areas in thermal energy. The aim of this study is to model the heat transfer of a furnace in order to minimize energy losses. The furnace system is simulated using fuzzy arithmetic, namely, the uncertain model inputs are represented by fuzzy numbers. The analysis of the model is presented in this paper.
