Description
Summary:This electronic document presents the thermokinetical modelling of the gasification process done on acacia-tree with variable operating conditions and different humidity levels. Gasification does not produce flue gas, but due to imperfect burning, synthesis gas appears which is rich in flammable components (CO2 and H2). The chemical structure of this gas depends on the components of the fuel and the humidity level, but greatly affected by the technological parameters too, such as pressure and temperature, as well as the air-ratio. The study shows the change in the amount of the fuel and the reaction efficiency, caused by varying gasification temperature and pressure. Rising temperature results in improved efficiency, while higher pressure worsens reaction efficiency. However, at higher temperature intervals, the effect of the pressure is neglectable.
