Simulations of the supercritical reactor

Simulations have been made of the pilot scale reactor using input data, which reproduce the conditions established in the experimental tests. Validation of the reactor model has been carried out by using the TOC conversion and the temperatures as measured and simulated for all the SCWO/G tests carried out with the PDU, obtaining good or acceptable agreement. Extensive parametric and sensitivity analyses have been carried out to investigate the effects of operating variables (for instance, the inlet temperature in the HE section, the total electric power supplied, the inlet mass flow rate, the TOC mass fraction in the feed, the effects of catalyst) and the applicability of simplifications in the mathematical description of the problem.
