Task 3.11 -- Fuel Quality Advisor. Topical report, January 1, 1995--September 30, 1996

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objective of the Fuel Quality Advisor (FQA) project was to create a generalized software package capable of advising operations, purchasing, environmental, and maintenance personnel in making decisions related to the use of coal in electricity generation facilities. The specific goals for this project work included the following: develop a standardized computer shell to integrate existing and future algorithms; develop a strategy for integrating the shell with future databases and boiler models; integrate the current ash transformation and deposition algorithms into the shell; generate algorithms for coal handleability through experimentation and integrate them into the code; and enhance the current ... continued below

The program was divided into four primary thrust areas: development of the computerized shell and interface; development of the coal handleability advisor; enhancement of ash formation algorithms; and the enhancement of ash fouling algorithms. Accomplishments in each of these four areas are described in detail below.
