    The efficient development of a low-NOX, low-unburned component combustion method applicable to various kinds of fuel for coal combustion boilers requires simulation technology capable of predicting multiphysics including pulverized coal combustion, gaseous combustion and radiative heat transfer with high accuracy. Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) has utilized measurement results obtained in from small-scale basic combustion experiments to actual-scale burning tests for actual equipment performance-matched implementation of model development/ verification. This has gradually enabled combustion simulation technology to be applied to the development of various burners.
