Research Areas for the Modelling of Energy Systems

Expertise in the modelling of energy systems has been developed as a priority line of research since 2005. The background to this area of development is the department's history of research in flow and multiphase flow modelling.

Priority areas of research

  • 3D modelling of fluidized bed boilers
  • Oxygen combustion concepts
  • Furnace radiation modelling
  • Dynamics of circulating fluidized bed boilers
  • Multiphase flow modelling
  • Advanced fluidized bed applications

Energy System Modelling Equipment

The laboratory has a range of testing equipment available to support modelling.

  • A bench-scale reactivity testing device
  • A cold model circulating fluidized bed
