Modeling a Combined Heat and Power Cogeneration System in Vietnam with a Fluidized Bed Combustor Burning Biomass

Tung Dinh Nguyen


Agricultural biomass, suitable for the generation of electrical power using a combined heat and power (CHP) plant, is abundantly available in Vietnam. This study used a fluidized bed combustor (FBC) plant with the biomass fuel mixtures hemp residue and rapeseed residue. A theoretical model for the technical parameters of the combustion process and drying system is proposed. The results determine the optimal ratio of each kind of residue to decrease emissions and increase thermal efficiency of the system. The presented model is suitable for experimental investigations, and/or may be applied for the design of a small scale rural power station.
