Development and experimental validation of a mathematical modelling methodology for oxy-fuel combustion for CO2 capture in large power plants [Print to PDF] [Print to RTF]

One promising technology for the improvement of the use of coal as a clean energy source and the use of CO2 capture is the Oxy-Fuel Boiler Technology. Computerised mathematic models are used for development and design of coal-fired boilers.
Further development of the models is needed to support the demand of mathematic modelling for Oxy-Fuel combustion that will occur in Europe the coming five years. The objective for the proposed project is to develop and by experiments validate a mathematical modelling methodology for Oxy-Fuel combustion to be used in process layout, operation and optimisation of a CO2 free power plant.
