Assessing the impact of primary measures for NOx reduction on the thermal power plant steam boiler
MetadataShow full item record
The European normatives prescribe content of 200 mg/Nm(3) NO for pulverized coal combusting power plants. In order to reduce content of NOx in Serbian thermal power plant (TPP) square Kostolac B square its necessary to implement particular measures until 2016. The mathematical model of lignite combustion in the steam boiler furnace is defined and applied to analyze the possibility of implementing certain primary measures for reducing nitrogen oxides and their effects on the steam boiler operation. This model includes processes in the coal-fired furnace and defines radiating reactive two-phase turbulent flow. The model of turbulent flow also contains sub-model of fuel and thermal NOx formation and destruction. This complex mathematical model is related to thermal and aerodynamic calculations of the steam boiler within a unified calculation system in order to analyze the steam boiler overall work. This system provides calculations with a number of influential parameters. The steam boiler... calculations for unit 1 (350 MWe) of TPP square Kostolac B square are implemented for existing and modified combustion system in order to achieve effective, reliable and ecological facility work. The paper presents the influence analysis of large number of parameters on the steam boiler operation with an accepted concept of primary measures. Presented system of calculations is verified against measurements in TPP square Kostolac B square. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
