Abstract: Lignite pre-drying and dry lignite firing is considered as an important development step for the next generation of lignite power plants. The integration of a predrying system in future lignite power plants, which utilizes low temperature steam for the drying process, combined with the further thermal utilization of lignite’s evaporated moisture, may bring an […]

Abstract: The present paper presents a three-dimensional numerical investigation of a pulverized-fuel, tangentially-fired utility boiler located at Florina/Greece under air, partial and full oxy-fuel conditions. Heat and mass transfer and major species concentration, such as CO2, CO and O2 are calculated; whilst the results for the reference air case scenario studied are in good agreement […]
