Modeling of conversion of a single fuel particle in a CFD model for CFB combustion

Abstract

In CFB combustion, fuel conversion is limited by mass and heat transfer and chemical reactions inside the particle. In CFD simulation, computation of the local instantaneous conversion rate of a single fuel particle should be fast. The objective of the present study is to convert a shrinking particle model for coal combustion into a correlation based description that can easily be implemented in a CFD code. The single particle model was used to produce net reaction rates averaged over particle volume in a wide range of fluidization, temperature and composition conditions. The data was used to train neural network models that are fast to compute and easy to implement in a CFD code.
