    • Development and manufacturing of a prototype pulverized fuel feeder for a micro burner 

      Botha, Daniel Jacobus (North-West University (South Africa) , Potchefstroom Campus, 2017)
      Existing coal fired power stations could be improved by increasing the efficiency of the combustion process. The combustion process is incorrectly set up since inaccurate calorific values (CV) for the pulverized fuel is ...
    • Development of a micro scale pulverised coal test burner 

      Storm, Andre John (North-West University (South Africa) , Potchefstroom Campus, 2016)
      The power demand in South Africa continues to grow which makes it more important to understand different input parameters in power stations. One of these input parameters is the calorific value (CV) of coal. The current ...
    • A general approach to develop and assess models estimating coal energy content 

      Van Aarde, C. (North-West University (South Africa), 2019)
      The gross calorific value (GCV) is an important property defining the energy content of fuels such as coal. Many industries require the GCVs to accurately quantify and report the energy efficiency of the operations. ...
