Measurement of the mass flow distribution of pulverized

May 26 2016 · Abstract On-line measurement of pulverized fuel (PF) distribution between primary air pipes on a coal-fired power plant is of great importance to achieve balanced fuel supply to the boiler for increased combustion efficiency and reduced pollutant emissions. An instrumentation system using multiple electrostatic sensing heads are developed and installed on 510 mm bore primary air pipes of

Stoichiometric Air or Theoretical Air Quantity

Coal is the most widely used fuel source used to produce Electricity. Air provides the necessary Oxygen for burning coal. It is the chemical reaction between Carbon in coal and the Oxygen in the air that produces the heat energy. The most important requirement to burn coal is the correct quantity of air. The method of calculating the air quantity is explained in this article. The Heating value

How to Calculate the Coal Quantity Used in a Power Plant

The basic function of the power plant is to convert energy in coal to electricity. Therefore the first thing we should know is how much energy there is in coal. Energy content of coal is given in terms of KiloJoules (kJ) per Kilogram (kg) of coal as the Gross calorific value (GCV) or the Higher Heating value (HHV) of coal. This value can vary

in earlier sections. A coal with higher GCV means less coal flow and vice-versa. More coal flow means more volume of air to be handled by the ID Fan which ultimately affects the power consumption from the ID Fans. Due to change in coal quality there may rise a need of starting or stopping a mill. This affects the percentage significantly.
