Automatic CFD Optimisation of Biomass Combustion Plants

A. Shiehnejadhesar, K. Schulze, R. Scharler & I. Obernberger
In this paper, the work on the development and test of a basic design tool for the automatic performance of parameter studies for the optimisation of biomass combustion plants is presented. The model consists of parameterisation and optimisation routines linked with an in ¬house developed empirical packed bed combustion model as well as gas phase CFD models especially adapted for biomass grate furnaces. To test and verify the routine developed, it has been applied for...
