The study presents the concept and numerical calculations of the coal dust gasification in the entrained flow reactor with power of 16 MWt. The gasification process in the reactor can be performed in the atmosphere of O2, CO2 and H2O. The combustible gases obtained during gasification are composed mainly of CO and H2 and can be used to feed pulverized coal-fired boilers. Integration of the reactor (reactors) for coal dust gasification with the pulverized coal-fired boiler allows for improved flexibility, especially in the range of low loads if stabilization of coal dust combustion in pulverized-fuel burners or support for their work with ignition burners fed with gas or light fuel oil is necessary. The concept of the gasification reactor assumes strong eddy motion of the coal dust, which substantially allows for elongation of the time of fuel remaining in the reactor and obtaining a high reaction level. The concept of the entrained flow reactor presented in this study and the results of numerical calculations can be helpful for development of the devices with greater powers which in the nearest future should be integrated in the systems of pulverized coal-fired boilers in order to reduce their minimum load without using the ignition burners.
