Modeling of fluidized bed combustion processes
Book chapter, 2013
This chapter provides an overview of the aims, principles, and limitations of the different types of modeling used for fluidized bed combustion (FBC) systems with a focus on macroscopic modeling, which is currently considered the most suitable modeling approach for FBC units of industrial scale. Sub-models for the different regions characterizing FBC units are described, with emphasis on the most critical in-furnace phenomena. Guidelines and examples are given of how different sub-models can be linked into a comprehensive process model for FBC units.
