This paper describes the influences of some parameters relevant to biomass pyrolysis on the numerical solutions of the nonisothermal nth-order distributed activation energy model (DAEM) involved the Weibull distribution. Investigated parameters are the integral upper limit, the frequency factor, heating rate, the reaction order and the shape, scale and location parameters of the Weibull distribution. Those influences can be used for the determination of the kinetic parameters of the nonisothermal nth-order Weibull DAEM from thermoanalytical data of biomass pyrolysis.
