Influence of Biomass Loading Frequency on Performances of a Stratified Biomass Gasifier

G. Allesina, S. Pedrazzi & P. Tartarini
Since the first employment of gasification technology for power production, most gasifiers have been designed to work with continuous loading, but the filling methods and controls actually discretize the charge in a series of small batches. The loading frequency of these batches, as well as other control variables in a gasification power plant, can deeply influence its performance, such as syngas HHV, tar and water production. Downdraft stratified gasifiers seem to be the most influenced...
