Because of multiphase flow during the heat transfer, OTSG (Once-Through Steam Generator) is a complex nonlinear MIMO (Multiple Input and Multiple Output) system. This article sets the mathematics model of OTSG with internal screw and double tubes, uses the FOROTSG program to simulate OTSG, and identifies the system models of different power levels. Based on this, Multiple Model Predictive Control (MMPC) strategy is proposed, which designs the Model Predictive Controller of each model identified, and then integrates the multiple models by Membership Function Law, to achieve smoothly switch of the multiple models at last. The simulating result indicates the MMPC has the good control effects, and it is an available strategy to solve the problems of the nonlinear system control.
