A mathematical model of coal-fired fluidised bed boilers

Marks, Wilton L. (1973). A mathematical model of coal-fired fluidised bed boilers. PHD thesis, Aston University.

Abstract

A mathematical model of a large coal-fired fluidized bed boiler for power generation is synthesised. The effect of variations in the main parameters of the model on variables such as the background carbon concentrations in the bed, and the transient response of heat evolution are studied. The mechanisms of solids mixing within the bed, combustion and the flow of heat to the boiler tubes are shown to result in a characteristic dynamic response, knowledge of which is essential for the proper control and regulation of a practical system.
