The efficiency of a furnace depends on control a strategy The temperature controller of furnace must be complemented by a safety of heating resistances thus the necessity of robust control in order to emprove the control and maintain this temperature The neural networks have known an increasing success in various domains ,especially in process Engineering. The inverse modal neural control is the seaked method in this present paper It is noticed that this method is better for response time regulation of furnace temperature.
