Experiments were carried out in a pilot-scale pulverized coal combustor at the Energy and Environmental Research Center (EERC) burning a Powder River Basin (PRB) subbituminous coal. A scanning mobility particle sizer (SMPS) and an electrical low-pressure impactor (ELPI) were used to measure the particle size distributions (PSDs) in the range of 17 nm to 10(More)
The performance of non-carbon based sorbent, titanium dioxide (TiO 2) used with UV irradiation, was evaluated in a laboratory-scale coal combustor and in a slip-stream drawn from a pilot-scale coal combustor. For the laboratory-scale system, mercury capture efficiency peaked at 94% at a sorbent feed rate of 71 mg/m 3 , with sorbent to coal ratio of 0.0074.(More)

Firstly, a hydraulic model was carried out based on the structure of a certain hydro-pneumatic spring. Furthermore, with the distortion being involved, the dynamics model with the consideration of the distortion was built in Matlab/Simulink. Finally, the validity and accuracy of the model was evaluated through the comparison between the simulation output(More)
