A time-averaged simulation approach is applied to a 135 MWe circulating fluidized bed combustor located in Ruzhou, China, in which also measurements were carried out. The simulation results show a vertical solids distribution typical for a CFB. Gas composition profiles show plausible but not fully correct distributions of oxygen and combustion products inside the furnace.
