Abstract

A steady state simulation approach for the simulation of circulating fluidized bed furnaces is presented in the paper. The feasibility of the method is studied by applying it on coal combustion in the circulating fluidized bed combustor at Chalmers University of Technology. In addition to hydrodynamics, a steady-state description of heat transfer and chemistry, including homogeneous and heterogeneous reactions, is included in the modeling. Fuel particles are modeled applying the Lagrangian particle tracking method. The obtained simulation results are comparable with the ones presented in the literature. The study proves the steady state modeling approach to be feasible
