Soot Blowing Management System
Fluctuating coal qualities result in unpredictable fouling tendencies, necessitating a smart soot blowing approach to attain optimal techno-economic outcomes.
SR::BCM as a Smart Soot Blowing Management System
Soot Blowing Management System SR::BCM, also known as the Boiler Cleaning Management System, plays a crucial role in maintaining coal-fired steam generators. Soot blowing, the cleaning process for heating surfaces, significantly contributes to long-term plant performance and efficiency. The SR::BCM module employs fuzzy technology to analyze multiple influential factors simultaneously and determine the optimal soot blowing strategy.
EBSILON utilizes a detailed boiler model to accurately assess the fouling state of heating surfaces. This model enables precise evaluations and simulation calculations, offering additional criteria for soot blowing, such as hot-reheat injection flow after cleaning a heating surface.
How Does SR::BCM Works?
SR::BCM is most effective when it operates the existing soot blowing systems in a fully automated, closed-loop manner. Once the system identifies the need for a specific cleaning step, SR::BCM generates a request. This request serves as the initiation signal for the corresponding sequence of steps within the DCS.
Additionally, the integrated boiler diagnosis feature offers the operating engineer valuable insights into the current operation status. The long-term data storage capability allows for the analysis of operational data over extended periods.
