Chemical Looping Combustion (CLC) is one of the most promising alternatives for solid fuel combustion. CO2 concentration in the exhaust gas is high in CLC technology which enables high efficiency of CO2 capture from flue gas. The use of solid oxygen carriers is a characteristic feature of a CLC process. Oxygen carriers are mainly metal oxides which are characterized by high oxygen transfer capacity and high mechanical resistance.
Since the CLC technology is not sufficiently recognized due to its complexity the development of models with real conditions of the CLC equipment is of practical significance.
The paper presents numerical simulations of the dynamic fluidized bed for Chemical Looping Combustion using CeSFaMB software. The model was validated on the basis of the results obtained from experiments, which were carried out on the Fluidized-Bed Chemical-Looping-Combustion of Solid-Fuels (FB-CLC-SF) unit. The studies were conducted in air atmosphere at temperature of 850°C. The validation of the 1.5D model showed that the maximum relative error between experiment and simulations results does not exceed 12%.
