A dynamic model of an atmospheric pressure fluidized-bed steam generation system is presented which allows digital simulation and analytical controller design. The nonlinear, time-invariant, deterministic, continuous-time model is derived in state-space form from conservation relations, empirical correlations and system design data. The model has been verified for steady-state and transient performance with measured data from experimental test runs. Transient responses of several process variables, following independent step disturbances in coal feed rate and air flow, are illustrated.
