Characterization of Coals and Development of Boiler Combustion Model for a Super-critical BoilerOptimization and improvement of a working coal fired boiler, undergone with some CFD aids involvement. Coal burning power plants spread around the world and are one the worse alternatives, with respect to environmental aspects. Economically, coal is ways cheaper than other energy resources, per unit of energy. Therefore, it is too difficult to convince all industries and governments to stop burning coal.

The main goal is to minimize the stack contaminants by improving operational conditions, to make coal burning boilers, less harmful for environment.
Reaching possible better operating variables to achieve the goal and reduce the power-plant’s carbon footprint around the globe.
The model is too complicated to be solved on a single PC and Pawsey’s infrastructure makes it possible to dealt with.
Allocated budget used to benchmark and prepare an application for Pawsey 2019 allocation round, as well as preparing preliminary model to be validated by actual information.
