  1. 1. Eulerian-Lagrangian Simulations of Fuel Mixing in Fluidized Beds

    Author : Meisam Farzaneh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fuel mixing; fluidization; Eulerian-Lagrangian simulations; multigrid technique;

    Abstract : Fluidized-bed technology has been commercially applied over several decades. However, there is still a lack of knowledge that can provide detailed understanding of the combustion process in the furnace. READ MORE

  2. 2. Solid Fuel Conversion in Dual Fluidized Bed Gasification - Modelling and Experiments

    Author : Louise Lundberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dual fluidized bed gasification; fuel mixing; biomass; semi-empirical modelling; char gasification rate; fuel conversion; active bed material; char reactivity;

    Abstract : Dual fluidized bed gasification (DFBG) is the initial step towards the transformation of ligno-cellulosic materials into a raw gas, which can be further upgraded into transportation fuels, such as substitute natural gas, Fischer-Tropsch diesel, dimethyl ether, and methanol. DFBG units can be operated in two distinctly different ways, depending on whether the main product is a gas (to be refined into a transportation fuel) or heat and power (with gas as a by-product).

  3. 3. Fluidized bed combustion - modeling and mixing

    Author : David Pallarès; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fluidized bed combustion; Mixing; Modeling;

    Abstract : First demonstrated on industrial scale in 1976, fluidized bed combustion (FBC) rapidly became an established technology for solid fuel combustion with a currentinstalled capacity of about 30 GWe and power plants ranging from 10 to 460 MWe.The widespread use of the FBC technology both under so-called circulating and bubbling conditions (i.e. READ MORE

  4. 4. Conceptual Thermodynamic Cycle and Aerodynamic Gas Turbine Design - on an Oxy-fuel Combined Cycle

    Author : ADRIAN NILSSON DAHLQVIST; Kraftverksteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gas turbine; combined cycle; conceptual design; aerodynamic; mid-span design; through-flow design; oxy-fuel; SCOC-CC; OCC; gas turbine; Combined cycle; conceptual design; aerodynamic; mid-span design; Through-flow design; Oxy-fuel; SCOC-CC; OCC;

    Abstract : The world is today facing a serious problem with global warming, which is heading towards an appallingly high temperature level. The greater part of the overall climate science community agree that global warming is caused by the greenhouse effect, which depends largely on emitted CO2 emissions from the combustion of fossil fuel.

  5. 5. Mixing of Large Solids in Fluidized Beds

    Author : Anna Köhler; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : fluidized beds; fuel mixing; drag; semiempirical modelling; fluid-dynamic downscaling; magnetic particle tracking;

    Abstract : Fluidization is a technology that is widely used in systems in which particulate solids are to be transported, mixed, and/or reacted with gases. In fluidized bed applications, the lateral mixing rate of the solids and the heat and mass transfer with their surroundings play important roles in process performance. READ MORE
