본 연구는 대형 석탄 화력 발전소 탈황설비 내 흡수탑의 성능향상을 위하여 Tray 설치 가능성을 검토하기 위한 연구로 전산 유체역학(CFD) 기법을 이용하여 탈황설비 내 흡수탑의 내부유동을 전산해석 하였다. 흡수탑 내의 Gas와 Slurry의 거동에 대한 사실적 묘사를 위해 Euler-Lagrangian 기법을 이용한 전산해석을 수행하였다. 기존 흡수탑 내에 Tray를 설치함에 따라 탈황설비 내에서 Slurry의 체공시간 증가로 인한 펌프동력 절감과 압력강하 증가로 인한 Fan의 소요동력 증가에 대하여 중점적으로 비교 및 고찰하였다. 그 결과 Tray를 설치함에 따라 흡수탑 내에 Slurry의 체공시간과 배기가스의 압력강하가 증가되는 것을 확인할 수 있었다. 체공시간 증가로 인하여 절약된 동력이 압력강하에 의한 동력 소모량 증가보다 더 큰 것으로 확인되었다.
This study is performed to study the effect of the tray in the absorber of a flue-gas desulphurization (FGD) system by using a computational fluid dynamic (CFD) technique. Stagnant time of slurry and the pressure drop in the FGD absorber increase when a tray is used in the absorber. Stagnant time of slurry results in an increase in the desulfurization effect and a decrease in the power of the absorber recirculation pump; however, increased pressure drop requires more power of booster fan in the FGD system should be increased. The gas and slurry hydrodynamics inside the absorber is simulated using a commercial CFD code. The continuous gas phase has been modeled in an Eulerian framework, while the discrete liquid phase has been modeled by adopting a Lagrangian approach by tracking a large number of particles through the computational domain. It was observed that the power saved upon increasing the stagnant time of slurry was more than increased power with pressure drop.
