Fossil Fuel Power Plant Boiler Combustion Controls
|Publication Date:||27 October 2015|
The scope of this standard is to address the major combustion control subsystems in boilers with steaming capabilities of 200,000 lb/hr (25 kg/s) or greater. These subsystems include, but are not limited to, furnace pressure control (balanced draft), airflow control, and fuel flow control when firing coal, oil, gas, or combinations thereof. Specifically excluded from consideration are development of boiler energy demand, all burner control, interface logic systems, and associated safety systems, as well as all controls associated with fluidized bed and stoker-fired combustion units.
The purpose of this standard is to establish the minimum requirements for the functional design specification of combustion control systems for drum-type, fossil-fueled, power-plant boilers.
