Fixed exposure will lead to underexposure or overexposure of collected flame radiation images using CCD, which has a great influence on the temperature measuring accuracy. A temperature measurement method was proposed by image fusion with multi-exposure, which can eliminate the influence of insufficient underexposure and overexposure. The approach was first to acquire a group of flame radiation images during different exposures. Then a partial region with good exposure effect in each radiation

An experimental system was built to calibrate the temperature measurement parameters by two-color pyrometry through a blackbody furnace. The relation between exposure time and monochromatic gray level, as well as the relation between the temperature and temperature measurement coefficient were obtained. A candle flame was selected as the measuring object and the complete and accurate flame temperature distribution was acquired following our proposed method. The experimental results show that, compared with the temperature measurement using a single exposure time, our method can effectively avoid the measurement error caused by underexposure and overexposure, and improve the measurement accuracy.
