Vertical Roller Mill The vertical roller mill (VRM) shown in Figure 4 is an air swept, medium-speed, vertical pulverizer with integral classifier. It pulverizes coal by applying hydraulically-loaded grinding pressure through three grin- ding rollers onto a rotating bed of coal. Grinding pressure can be adjusted to account for variations in coal

Tube-ball mill is another dominant type of coal mill apart from Vertical Spindle mill in industry. Compared with the Vertical Spin-dle mills, Tube-ball mills have a much higher grinding capacity. However, there are fewer literatures found in studying Tube-ball mill operation compared with the Vertical Spindle mill. Ma et al.

For coal fired power plants, the response time of the coal mills is critical for the overall reaction time to changing demand. Model predictive control is a possible way to improve the dynamic response of coal mills. Moreover, dynamic models may be used to estimate unobserved process variables such as the particle size of the ground coal.

Besides new mills especially designed for biomass cutter and hammer mills there is high interest in using the existing vertical spindle mills including the existing piping in order to feed the firing systems. Besides the biomass storage the milling section is one of the big efforts one has to take in order to convert a unit from coal to biomass.

Grinding of coal to this level of fineness is referred to as coal pulverisation. The Vertical Spindle Mill (VSM) is one of the most popularly used grinding devices for pulverised fuel (PF) generation in coal-fired power stations worldwide. According to published figures, coal pulverisation is an energy intensive process.

The co-milling of biomass with coal in coal mills • In Britain, a range of biomass materials are being co -milled with coal in ball and tube mills, and in vertical spindle ball and ring, and rolle r mills. • These mills depend on the coal particles being subject to brittl e fracture, and this does not apply to most biomass materials.

An area of power plant control that has received much less attention from modelling and control specialists is the coal mills. This is in spite of the fact that it is now accepted that coal mills and their poor dynamic response are major factors in the slow load take-up rate and they are also a regular cause of plant shut-down (Maffezzoni, 1986).
