Characterizing the Dynamic Behaviour of a WtE Plant through Start-up Data
Municipal Solid Waste is a highly heterogenous fuel, with physical and chemical properties that change over time. When describing the dynamic behaviour of a waste-to-energy plant, physical parameters such as thermal inertia of the different plant components play an important role when determining...
Evaluating the Cleaning Routines in a Norwegian WtE Plant by Principal Component Analysis
Principal components analysis was performed using process data from a waste-to-energy plant (WtE), together with Hotelling’s T2 statistics and Q statistics, to evaluate the effect of maintenance routines on the performance of different units. The results showed that shower cleaning of evaporator...
Machine learning based modelling for lower heating value prediction of municipal solid waste
Dynamic modeling of municipal solid waste incineration
In this work, a comprehensive dynamic model of a moving grate Waste-to-Energy plant is developed using MATLAB Simulink. The objective is to develop a reliable and flexible model which can reproduce the dynamic behavior of combustion chamber and boiler. For this purpose, an extensive number of...
