In this paper we present optoelectronic measurement system for monitoring the industrial gas pollutants. The system consists of a source of light, an optical fiber as a data transmission link, a spectrometer, an optical detection system and a neural network unit for a real-time spectral data processing. We have paid the major attention to the neural network structure and its properties in gas recognition and gas concentration estimation.

Key words: neural network, power industry, spectroscopy, environmental pollution
