Studies and Research on Operation, Modeling and Simulation of Boilers: A Review

Authors(2) :-Sunil J. Kulkarni, Ajaygiri K. Goswami

Energy saving is very important for economical and cost effective operation of the facility. In boilers, steam is produced for various process, utility and instrumental applications. It is very important to operate the boiler with proper operating conditions. The parameters like level of feed water, steam temperature and flow of steam need to be optimized. Various studies are carried out on optimization of these parameters by using various software tools. Experimental data can be used to develop models. The present review aims at summarizing the research and studies carried out on various aspects of boilers such as operation, modeling, simulation and optimization.
