Fossil-fired Power Plant
Combustion Equipment Technology

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

 

PEDAGOGY

Understand the physical and chemical principles of combustion in a fossil-fired fuel-oil, coal and biomass-fired power station.

Understand the working and technology of all of the boiler's parts (combustion chamber and heat exchanger).

 
  • Theoretical and practical training on the clients' installations
  • Use of videos and industriel examples
  • Individual testing of knowledge at the end of the course

Length of the course: 5 days

TRAINING PROGRAM

  • The principles of the combustion
  • The different types of fuel, their advantages and disadvantages
  • Fuel preparation (crushers, heating station, drying, filtration, etc.)
  • Treatment of combustion residue (removal of slag, ash management, etc.)
  • The different types and operation of combustion chambers and their technologies
  • The technology of burners and heating type
  • The combustion chemistry
  • The redox combustion
  • The upper and lower heating value
  • The comburivore power
  • The fumigant power
 
  • The behaviour of the boiler
  • The management of excess air
  • The different heat transfers (convection, radiation and conduction)
  • The optimization of process parameters
  • The various exchangers and their technologies
  • The power and performance of the exchangers
  • Maintenance and cleaning of the boiler
  • The main reasons for boiler failure
  • Changing parameters during transient phases
  • Smoke treatment
  • The monitoring of process parameters
  • Preservation facilities by optimizing process parameters
