    Abstract

    Fluidized bed combustion is being developed for application to coal fired steam-electric power generation. The fluidized bed boiler is quite different from a conventional pulverized fuel boiler. A description is presented of fluidized bed boilers and the mathematical modeling techniques for describing process dynamic characteristics. Basic model equations are presented from which the model of a boiler system can be constructed. The model for the Alexandria Process Development Unit (PDU) will be discussed, as well as the experimental program for model validation. A basic goal is to use the model to design and evaluate process controllers.
