Study of the Bed Agglomeration during the Fluidized Bed Combustion of Rice Straw

Huanpeng Liu; Rushan Bie 2009 Asia-Pacific Power and Energy Engineering Conference, 2009

The fluidized bed combustion of rice straw was investigated in a lab-scale reactor. The influence of fluidization velocity and bed temperature on the fluidization time was investigated. The effect of regulating running parameters on the fluidization recovery after the defluidization had occurred was studied. Experimental results showed that the fluidization time decrease with the increase of the bed temperature or ...


Global renewable electricity potential

F. R. Pazheri; A. A. Al-Arainy; M. F. Othman; N. H. Malik 2013 7th IEEE GCC Conference and Exhibition (GCC), 2013

Due to the concern in the rising of global warming and in the dwindling supply of fossil fuels, global exploitation of renewable energy technologies is increasing spontaneously. Most of the countries in the world are blessed with two or more renewable energy sources (RES) and hence have formulated policies to boost the utilization of RES for their electricity production. In ...

Nuclear Fission Fuel is Inexhaustible

H. Douglas Lightfoot; Wallace Manheimer; Daniel A. Meneley; Duane Pendergast; George S. Stanford 2006 IEEE EIC Climate Change Conference, 2006

Nuclear fission energy is as inexhaustible as those energies usually termed ldquorenewablerdquo, such as hydro, wind, solar, and biomass. But, unlike the sum of these energies, nuclear fission energy has sufficient capacity to replace fossil fuels as they become scarce. Replacement of the current thermal variety of nuclear fission reactors with nuclear fission fast reactors, which are 100 times more ...


Fitting a functional structural plant model based on global sensitivity analysis

Yubin Lin; Mengzhen Kang; Jing Hua 2012 IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE), 2012

Calibration of a functional structural plant model is a challenging task because of the complexity of model structure. Parameter estimation through gradient-based optimization technique was highly dependent on initial parameter values. This motivated the use of global sensitivity analysis technique to choose parameter subset in fitting the data sequence. Global sensitivity indices were computed using the source sink ratio as ...

  • Introduction

    This introductory chapter provides an overview of the structure and contents of the book. It focuses on energy utilization and discusses the need for effective biomass utilization. The chapter also discusses why the need for a new energy system exists, and explains several barriers to the adoption of renewable energy technologies. The aim of the book is to apply a systematic approach to biomass materials for the purpose of finding the most economical and efficient type, capable of producing sufficient energy on a commercial scale. This should help in reducing harmful gasses and stabilize CO2 in the atmosphere. The book investigates various biomass samples for long-term commercial use. When environmental issues, long-term supply/availability, and economic reasons are taken into account, the design and implementation of a new biomass energy system can provide benefits in many ways.

  • Background

    This chapter provides a brief generalized overview concerning renewable energy, biomass applications, and co-firing. The renewable energy covers a wide array of energy sources such as wind, water, geothermal, solar and biomass. From ancient time to the present day, biomass was and remains a reliable source of energy in our daily lives. Typical biomass applications can be categorized under combustion, gasification, and pyrolysis. The chapter briefly discusses the three types of co-firing: direct co-firing, indirect co- firing and parallel co-firing. A new design for the systems engineering approach solutions is what many of the co-firing systems presently require. To obtain the energy, the combustion factor is the key to biomass conversion technologies: thermochemical conversion, and biochemical conversion. The chapter also discusses Energy Crops Scheme, Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) and Climate Change Levy Exemption Certificate (LEC).

    In Energy at the Crossroads, Vaclav Smil considers the twenty-first century's crucial question: how to reconcile the modern world's unceasing demand for energy with the absolute necessity to preserve the integrity of the biosphere. With this book he offers a comprehensive, accessible guide to today's complex energy issues -- how to think clearly and logically about what is possible and what is desirable in our energy future.After a century of unprecedented production growth, technical innovation, and expanded consumption, the world faces a number of critical energy challenges arising from unequal resource distribution, changing demand patterns, and environmental limitations. The fundamental message of Energy at the Crossroads is that our dependence on fossil fuels must be reduced not because of any imminent resource shortages but because the widespread burning of oil, coal, and natural gas damages the biosphere and presents increasing economic and security problems as the world relies on more expensive supplies and Middle Eastern crude oil.Smil begins with an overview of the twentieth century's long-term trends and achievements in energy production. He then discusses energy prices, the real cost of energy, and "energy linkages" -- the effect energy issues have on the economy, on quality of life, on the environment, and in wartime. He discusses the pitfalls of forecasting, giving many examples of failed predictions and showing that unexpected events can disprove complex models. And he examines the pros and cons not only of fossil fuels but also of alternative fuels such as hydroenergy, biomass energy, wind power, and solar power. Finally, he considers the future, focusing on what really matters, what works, what is realistic, and which outcomes are most d esirable.
