A comprehensive multiphase gas-solid mathematical model that successfully describes the batch growth of silicon particles in a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) submerged spouted bed reactor is extended to simulate semi-batch operations with periodic seeds additions and product extractions. This model takes into account the fluidized bed reactor as well as a population balance equation representing particle growth and agglomeration. Experimental data obtained from semi-batch operation in a pilot scale reactor at REC Silicon Inc. are used to evaluate the proposed mathematical model.
