Pressurized oxy-coal combustion based systems have the potential to improve
efficiency by recovering latent heat of the steam in the flue gas and achieve 90%
CO2 capture. Additionally, due to the reduction of flue gas at high pressure,
smaller system size and capital cost reductions are also possible. Participants in
this project will assist in the systematic design of a high-pressure oxy-coal
combustor system using, NX CAD software, Ansys Fluent software, assist senior
team members in the experimental development and testing of the system and
its components, and become familiar with combustion fundamentals.
