We use PROMECON’s coal flow measurement system and density dampers to improve combustion. A new Kalman Filter will also be applied to increase in load swing capacity. We have improved the combustion quality of biomass co-firing by using the MECONTROL Coal system for fuel balancing at our Amager plant. The Promecon UBC provides us with an on-line, real time solution providing rapid verification of the specification and compliance of our ash for onward sale. By means of extensive experience in balancing organs and methods, along with other detailed experience within Combustion Optimization, DONG Energy has been able to use the system with positive results at more than one area. We have utilized the McON Air System on our coal mill and downcomer for nine years and currently adding a third system to our raw mill to control air flow.
