Numerical simulation of the content of unburned carbon in fly ash on the 300MW tangentially pulverized coal fired boiler is performed by the numerical simulation software COALFIRE, which is based on international advanced TASCFLOW software platform. Firstly, take the result of calculation of number value as the sample, and then set up the support vector machine model of unburned carbon content on the boiler. The relative error between the predicted output and measured value is 0.00186%, which proves the modeling is good for the unburned carbon in fly ash predict.
