The heat transfer coefficient in the combustion chamber of industrial circulating flidized bed (CFB) boilers depends on many parameters as it is a result of multifactorial mechanisms proceeding in the furnace. Therefore, the development of an effective modeling tool, which allows for predicting the heat transfer coefficient is interesting as well as a timely subject, of high practical significance. The present paper deals with an innovative application of fuzzy logic-based (FL) method for the prediction of a heat transfer coefficient for superheaters of fluidized-bed boilers, especially circulating fluidized-bed combustors (CFBC). The approach deals with the modeling of heat transfer for the Omega Superheater, incorporated into the reaction chamber of an industrial 670 t/h CFBC. The height above the grid, bed temperature and voidage, gas velocity, and the boiler’s load constitute inputs. The developed Fuzzy Logic Heat (FLHeat) model predicts the local overall heat transfer coefficient of the Omega Superheater. The model is in good agreement with the measured data. The highest overall heat transfer coefficient is equal 220 W/(m2K) and can be achieved by the SH I superheater for the following inputs l = 20 m, tb = 900 °C, v = 0.95, u = 7 m/s, M-C-R = 100%. The proposed technique is an effective strategy and an option for other procedures of heat transfer coefficient evaluation. View Full-Text
