Development of Euler-Lagrangian Simulation of a Circulating Fluidized Bed Reactor for Coal Gasification
A Computational Particle Fluid Dynamics (CPFD) model based on the Multiphase Particle in Cell (MP-PIC) approach is used for Shubarkol coal gasification simulation in an atmospheric circulating fluidized bed reactor. The simulation is developed on a basis of experimental data available from a biomass gasification process. The cross-section diameter of the reactor riser is 200 mm and the height is 6500 mm. The Euler-Lagrangian simulation is validated using experimental data available in the literature and also compared with an Euler-Euler simulation. The gasification reactions kinetics model is improved, and homogenous and heterogeneous chemistry are described by reduced-chemistry, with the reaction rates solved numerically using volume-averaged chemistry. The simulations reveal gas composition, temperature, and pressure interdependencies along the height of the reactor. The product gas composition compares well with the experiment and the temperature profile demonstrate good consistency with the experiment. The developed model is used for a case study of Shubarkol coal gasification in the circulating fluidized bed reactor.
