Title: IMPROVING THE EFFICIENCY OF THE COAL GRINDING PROCESS IN BALL DRUM MILLS AT THERMAL POWER PLANTS
Keywords: Coal grinding; Drum ball mill; Efficiency improvement; Regression analysis; Thermal power plant

Abstract: Ensuring the reliable operation of the dust fuel preparation system at thermal power plants (TPP) is a topical issue since it determines the energy strategy of any country that fires coals for thermal energy production. This unit is one of the most energy-intensive units in TPP. Those systems are outdated, poorly automated and high energy-intensive. Furthermore, they must ensure efficient and safe operation of the facility while being environmentally friendly. The current work focuses on the process of grinding coals in ball drum mills for further pulverized combustion. An experimental study was performed in order to determine the main factors (rotational speed of the drum mill, the degree of loading with the grinding balls, and the velocity of the supplied air) that affect the efficiency of the fuel preparation system. The obtained experimental data and performed mathematical modeling resulted in regression equations describing the energy performance of the mill.
