Obviously, this method guarantees the performance, with no investment for refinery complex on the action taken and repay debts resulting from savings made in fuel supply
In this section, a brief description of effective mechanisms to control the boiler is provided.
– Introduction of control systems and control systems to optimize combustion boiler and blow down
Steam boilers are one of the most important energy carriers, usually are one of the important components, and are major energy consumers. Regardless of the boiler structure, the most important parameter in terms of energy consumption equipment is the thermal energy efficiency.
The definition of this efficiency is the ratio of energy received by steam to the Energy given by fuel.
The most important loss of energy in boilers are, energy wasted through the chimney, heat loss from the body and heat loss through blow down at high temperature.
Heat loss through the chimney consists of several parts, such as heat loss due to high temperature combustion gases, waste heat from the water in the combustion gases, unburned hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide and the presence of soot.
It is seen that the rate of air supplied to the combustion to the rate of fuel affect all these parameters and with the appropriate Adjusting the high heat losses can be avoided.
Also, due to the high temperature of blow down that is used to adjust the amount of total dissolved solids in water and prevent the formation of deposits and other problems, a large amount of energy is wasted. Since the amount of blow down usually determined on the basis of experience, so having a proper standard of the measurements with suitable equipment, we can fine-tune the amount of blow down, this way the loss of energy is prevented.
The variety of boiler combustion control systems
It is clear that to fully burn fuel with specific composition, In perfect condition (stoichiometric) a fixed amount of oxygen in the air will be required, but because of difference in actual conditions with the theory and the inability of burner to perform complete combustion, should be a greater amount of air supplied to the combustion to occur completely. The proper amount depends on quality of burners, fuel and air-fuel mixture. On the other hand, it is clear that increasing the amount of air, which is entered with ambient temperature and extracted with chimney temperature, increases heat loss. Thus we see that on one hand reducing the combustion air leads to soot, unburned hydrocarbonsand carbon monoxide in general Will cause incomplete combustion, on the other hand increasing it will cause combustion air thermal dissipation. The control of combustion air is one of the most important factors in maintaining good working conditions and improve the efficiency of the boiler.
The boiler control can be done manually or automatically.
Manual control is tiresome and requires constant care of tools to establish safe conditions. Also In order to alert users to perform corrective measures, one must install warning devices. Todays The use of automatic and semi-automatic control systems, in many of the important equipment and devices are common and in many cases the use of manual control cannot be imagined .
Boiler controls used to regulate the flow rate, temperature and pressure and is done to protect the boiler from possible risks. Regardless of the boiler protection systems such as pressure and temperature, protection prevents injuries and accidents in different parts of it, the most important part of boiler control is combustion control. In fact, with combustion control, we can supply true rate of combustion and heat load requirements and at the same time control the right amount of the combustion air, which will be followed by improvement in boiler efficiency.
Boiler automatic control systems due to the equipment used and the complexity of their management philosophy,are divided into three main categories that include: power on / off systems, mechanical regulating and control systems for measuring.
the following section measurement and control system set up as a modern control system that is used in the projects carried out by the company are been investigated.
– Measurement and regulation systems
In this system the valve of fueland air damper are controlled withtheir respective commands. Signal of the pressure of steam supply line used to control the pressure. Commands are sent from this controller to the other 2 controllers of flow with the duty of the control fuel valve and air damper. In a full system of this type, fuel and intake air flows are measured and used as feedback in the respective controller for each boiler. Each of these controls independently dischargeit self’s valve or damper to regulate so that correct rate or set point obtained.in this manner The good combustion conditions, regardless of changes in system robustness or features of the controller is obtained, is provided. The control system is a closed loop system. Depending on the different ways of using this type of controller and use or non-use of the fuel and air flow, these controllers are divided to parallel regulatory systems and Parallel and series regulatory measures. In Figure 1, the full sample diagram of the control and regulation of parallel measurements using both O2 and CO sensors are shown
Figure 1. Flowchart plan of parallel measurement control and regulation
According to Figure 1, this control system for measuring and adjusting isconsists of 4 parts
the control of the burner modular steam according to pressure management (Firing Demand), control of carbon monoxide withanalysis of combustion gases (CO Measuring Control) to set the amount of excess air in a safe margin, controlling oxygen based on combustion gas analysis (O2 Measuring Control)for softcontrol and regulation of the boiler extra air for optimum efficiency and ultimately the air-fuel cross limiting control system to ensure safe air-fuel ratio. The control units individually marked in Figure 3.
Measurement and control systems can adjust all useful capabilities such as regulatory excess air, oxygen regulators, block the production of carbon monoxide and cross limiting of air and fuel. The concurrency control parameter in the control systems is one of the most important characteristics to prevent the rich fuelin the boiler.
Combustion control consists of two temperature control and control of fuel to air ratio of the combustion chamber. The task of combustion control system is to continually provide enough air for, furnace fuel combustion without smoke and soot extract from the chimney and also forbid hazardous combustion air to fuel ratios, which can turn off the burner.
Figure 2. The measurement control and regulation systems designed in parallel with
Excess air control of a refinery boiler
Figure 3. The range of variation of the excess air in order to achieve optimum thermal efficiency
Air-fuel delay control strategy
Delay strategy creates combustion control strategythat ensures it will never be dangerous air-fuel ratio in the system, this part of the system always increases the air flow before the increase in overload of boiler fuel flow and fuel flow to reduce air flow in the boiler. Figure 4 illustrates this well.
Figure 4. Cross-Limiting system performance to ensure the proper ratio of air to fuel
Knowing the amount of oxygen in the chimney causes better control of the combustion. Adding a module due to better control the amount of oxygen and excess air. The system makes quick return to set point when it gets into any kind of disturbance. Another advantage of the reduced CO output of the control systems that have these strategies are.
