Title: Comparison of atmospheric fluidized bed combustion conceptual designs for utility steam generation. Interim report

Abstract

DOE sponsored a program to develop conceptual designs for a utility-size AFBC electric power generating plant (approx. 600 MW), before undertaking a demonstration effort. The purpose of this design program was to obtain a clear delineation of the state-of-the-art and technical feasibility of the technology and also to develop a design on which to base an economic analysis of the technology. Three main conceptual designs for utility AFBC electric power generating plants were prepared under this program. Much of the merit of this effort is that the boilers were designed by established boiler manufacturers and the balance of the power plants designed by highly experience architect-engineering firms. At present, the initial conceptual designs for the AFBC plants have been completed. These designs are currently being refined in an add-on stage to the program. As a technical contractor to DOE, Radian Corporation provided technical assistance throughout the project in the form of interim reviews of the designs. This interim report reviews the information developed to date under the AFBC conceptual design project.
