Dynamic simulation of a thermomechanical pulp refiner
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1997
The aim of this paper is to describe a model for dynamic simulation of a TMP refiner. The temperature profile along the radius of the refiner, outlet consistency and motor load are considered as outputs of the simulation, whereas the chip screw speed and dilution water flow setpoints are the inputs.
The dynamic model of the refiner, as such, has been derived from first principles. The motor load and input dynamics, however, are based on black-box identifications. The model has been implemented in MATLAB/SIMULINK. Simulations are compared to corresponding data from experiments with the refiner.
