Advanced oxy-coal combustion modelling and optimisation


Department of Mechanical Engineering

About the Project

Oxy-coal combustion with recycled flue gas is an emerging technology for efficient carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) that can substantially reduce carbon emission from coal-fired power plants. Switching from air-firing to oxy-firing substantially alters the heat transfer and the combustion characteristics in the furnace. This project aims to improve the current understanding of the oxyfuel combustion processes through performing detailed computational fluid dynamics modelling of the oxy-coal combustion and experimental investigations in order to gain an in-depth understanding of the impact of oxy-coal combustion on the furnace operation. New knowledge will be obtained to provide guidelines to the power generation industry on their future design of new and/or retrofitting existing power plant with oxy-coal combustion technology.
