The flue temperature of coke oven is an important factor that guarantees the coke yield, the coke quality and the energy consumption of coking production. The heating process of coke oven is an object with multi control variables, nonlinear and large lag. The traditional PID control algorithm cannot further improve the control performance of the coke oven system. An improved implicit generalized predictive control algorithm with better control performance is proposed in this paper. Through inputting control increment value constrained by soft coefficient matrix, the calculation of matrix inversion is avoided. Soft coefficient matrix can reduce the computation time and ensure the rapidity of the system. At the same time, the input weight control law with smoothing filter is used to suppress the overshoot of the system output. Simulation results show that the proposed control method in this paper has the good control performance with faster computation speed. The proposed control method solves the problem of time variation and disturbance of coke oven system. The control algorithm of the coke oven flue temperature in this paper is effective.
