FLUID BED COMBUSTION COAL FIRED STEAM LOCOMOTIVE

Railways are the one form of transport that can run as well on coal and bunkering fuel as on any other fuel. The paper outlines the basic requirements and constraints of any future design of coal burning locomotive and discusses the merits and problems associated with the use of fluidized combustion. Consideration is given to a proposed Rankine cycle for a freight locomotive highlighting some control problems associated with the complex dynamically interacting thermodynamic components.
