Eulerian granular multiphase model with meso-scale modeling of drag coefficient and mass transfer coefficient, based on the energy minimization multi-scale (EMMS) model, was presented to simulate a 150 MWe CFB boiler. The three-dimensional (3D), full-loop, time-dependent simulation results were presented in terms of the profiles of pressure, solids volume fraction and solids vertical velocity, the distributions of carbon and oxygen, as well as the temperature. The EMMS-based sub-grid modeling allows using coarse grid with proven accuracy, and hence it is suitable for simulation of such large-scale industrial reactors.
