One of the methods of increasing the overall biomass share in the electricity and heat production is its gasification and subsequent co-combustion of the obtained syngas in conventional power boilers. The process of biomass gasification is relatively well controlled and understood. It does not change the fact that the syngas composition depends on many process factors, as well as the composition of the charge batch. Unfortunately, it means that the obtained product is not homogeneous in time. Consequently, the use of such fuel for electricity production may present a number of problems from the control point of view. Therefore, both during the syngas production and the co-firing process, it is advisable to use information on the composition of produced syngas, or at least its main components. It is possible to use optical methods, which are an interesting alternative to classical methods, even despite unfavorable measurement conditions. The article presents selected optical method for the synthesis gas monitoring. The results of simulation studies are presented, confirming the possibility of determining the concentration of interesting components in the syngas mixture.
