Development and Application of a Simulation Tool for Biomass Gasification Based Processes
A simulation tool for gasification based processes is presented for an equation-oriented, steady state modelling environment. The approach aims at an adequate description of phenomena linked to gasification. Background information is provided regarding the structure of the framework, thermodynamic data processing, and on the formulation of the model equations. The implemented substance streams are water/steam, ideal gases, inorganic solids, and organic mixtures. The models are based upon mass and energy balances and feature thermodynamic considerations. The addition of correlations for fluid dynamics or chemical kinetics is generally possible but not within the focus of this paper. The key-aspects of the typical unit-models, like pumps, turbines, heat exchangers, separators and chemical reactors are highlighted. The model of a dual-fluidized bed biomass gasifier is presented in detail. In a final case study, the suitability of the simulation tool is demonstrated for the description of the gasification-based biomass combined heat and power plant in Güssing/Austria.
