Utility and industrial steam generators in India are designed to burn coal for generating electricity, due to coal availability and economy. Rapid increase in coal-fired power projects increased the gap in demand and supply and therefore necessitated using available coals rather than plant design coal. Studies in different capacity boilers using coals of varying properties like gross calorific value, fixed carbon, volatile, moisture and mineral matter up to 100% in gross calorific value and 200% in mineral matter more than that of designed coal has been conducted. Performances of boilers were different than predicted due to variations in the fuel characteristics.
