The complete process of a pulverized fuel fired power station is treated, with regard to fuel, combustion, flue gas cleaning and by-products. It starts with coal properties and coal sampling and covers combustion as well as the different options for flue gas treatment. Finally, the various options for utilizing residual coal combustion products are discussed.
■ Knowledge of basic design and operating principles
■ Understanding of fuel characteristics and their effects on plant
■ Knowledge of options for co-firing of biomass
■ Understanding options for ash utilization and effects of fuel
composition and plant operation and ash quality
■ Overview of the interdependency of the different operational
requirements of a coal-fired power plant
