Mathematical modelling of coal fired fluidized bed combustors

  title={Mathematical modelling of coal fired fluidized bed combustors},
  author={Nevin Selçuk and Richard Siddall and U. Sivrioglu},
A system model of continuous fluidized bed combustors burning coal of wide size distribution has been derived, and applied to the investigation of the effect of excess air and recycle on bed concentration and temperature profiles and combustion efficiency of a pilot scale coal fired fluidized combustor. To demonstrate the effect of recycling, the behaviour of the fluidized combustor has been predicted for two extreme cases of recycle: complete and no recycle of elutriated char particles, the… CONTINUE READING
