Fuel Characteristics Research and Regression Analysis for Blend Fuel of Biomass and Coal
Blend fuel of corn stalk and coal was made in a series of blend ratios with corn stalk mass percent ranging from 10 to 90%. Several data were gotten by proximate analysis with considering indexes of volatile matter, fixed carbon, sulfur content, heat value and ash. The regression equations of the data were gotten through regression analysis for the relationship between blend ratios of corn stalk(BRCS) and proximate analysis data(PAD)．The result showed that there was linear relation between PAD of the blend fuel and BRCS, and linear equation slope absolute value of volatile matter, fixed carbon, sulfur content, heat value and ash were 8.49,7.64,5.45,4.85,3.97, respectively. Volatile matter content increased with the increase of BRCS, and other PAD was opposites. Variation rate and variation tendency of the blend fuel PAD was gotten through proximate analysis and fitted equation, and some references may be provided for utilization of blend fuel of biomass and coal.
