A comprehensive simulator of fluidized bed equipment (CSFMB) has been able to reproduce experimental tests
of bituminous coal gasification. The tests employed a bubbling fluidized bed pilot operating at atmospheric pressure and
mixtures of air and steam were injected as gasification agents. Relatively low deviations between experimental and simulation
results have been achieved. The simulator can now be applied on optimized scaling up of that equipment operating
at any pressure. It also opens the possibility of integrating CSFMB as a module of wider simulations aiming optimizations
of CIG/GT (Coal Integrated Gasification/Gas Turbine process) and Fisher-Tropsch.
