Combustion Controls for Coal Stoker Fired Boiler

Clifford T Johnson, P.E., CSE

This course examines the actual Design documentation of a combustion control system for a coal stoker industrial boiler installed in a Textile Mill in North Carolina in the mid 1980s. It will detail the reasons that the design is relevant for today’s boiler controls for operators acceptance and ease of maintenance. Today, the control valve that for years had been operated by an air diagram from a remote control room has evolved to include the digital controller on the valve itself in a modern Fieldbus system. The DCS and Fieldbus may be the answer for large power boilers, but for the small to medium plant the system described in this course is much easier to maintain and operate.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
