My Summer Internship 2006

Modeling of Gasifier

Filed under: Intern — Gagan @ 9:11 pm

I have completed the design of lab scale coal gasifier and modelled all the parts in ProE. Now the only thing left is assembling of all parts which will be done next week.

I also got chance to attend a Tech Talk on “Scorpio – A Techno-Commercial Success”.
The speaker was Mr V.Jaganathan, V.P, Mahindra & Mahindra. The talk was very informative and gave insights about various things related to product design, management, manufacturing and marketing/launch of Scorpio.



  1. There is a 6 Megawatt (MW) coal gasification demonstration unit operating in India, see the websites below:

  2. Nice to know that you have designed a coal gasifier unit. Can you mail me the basic details of the same at How much is the capacity?

  3. I am going also to model the biomass IGCC in Greece. The project will be completed during my phd thesis. What software have you tried besides ANSYS CFX AND proE. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

  4. @ Dimitris
    I actually did theoretical design only as my project was to be completed during my Summer Internship of 50 working days. There is a lot more to be worked upon… I learned Ansys CFX but could not use it for simulating the gasification reaction. You could use CFX or Fluent to simulate all these reactions. There are few papers available on Science Direct which u may find useful.
