Performance study of a lab scale packed bed Chemical Looping Combustion reactor: Part b) Oxidation cycle
Keywords:Chemical looping combustion (CLC), packed bed reactor, transient analysis, ilmenite
In the current part 2 of the paper the theoretical investigation of oxidation cycle in packed bed reactor operated on Chemical-looping combustion (CLC) technology is studied. During the oxidation cycle, the oxygen carrier material is (ilmenite) oxidized with air which emits high temperature stream at the exit of the reactor for power production. The simulation was performed for the I-D transient model of the packed bed reactor to study the influence of air flow rate, operating temperature and pressure, packing fraction of the bed, content of hematite in ilmenite and geometrical parameters of the reactor. The results are useful for the design, optimization and scale-up of the industrial size packed bed reactor.
