The engineering equations, which have been used in many engineering companies, were employed for the dynamic modelling part in order to develop the naturally circulated boiler simulator. The fuzzy algorithm, which is similar to the algorithm of making decision by the human being, was developed for the boiler simulator controller and its simulated variables were compared with those of classical PID simulations to verify the stability and the effectiveness of fuzzy controller. The simulator is for the naturally circulated boiler and the main components are the furnace, the drum, the super heater, and the economizer. The combustion and thermal radiation dominant equations were used within the furnace and the mass conservation and the energy rate balance equations were employed for the drum part. The heat transfer rates were calculated using the logarithmic mean temperature differences both for the super heater and for the economizer. The simulations are very useful to understand the boiler operations and the engineering design of the main components. The main program was developed under the PC window condition by linking the fuzzy controller to the main boiler program using the Visual C++ language. The various operational conditions such as the abrupt changes of load, the changes of water supply pipes and the diameter of drum were simulated.
