Controllers of industrial furnaces operate differently in different temperature ranges. The controller has different parameter sets for each of these ranges. The operation of controllers is switched according to the temperature. It is desirable to change the parameters continuously following the temperature. The continuous change of parameters instead of mode switching may decrease the switching transients and lead to more accurate temperature control. A furnace identification scheme is investigated in this paper. Measurement problems and possible corrections that result in more accurate models after processing the collected data are shown. A possible "interpolation" technique of frequency-domain models is also shown here.
