This paper presents results of engineering of a Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustor (CFBC) for Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) application. This development allows eliminating the use of premium fuels thus resolving economic as well as institutional issues.

The paper summarizes the engineering, performance and cost data for a CFBC and presents comparative technical and economic analyses of a CAES plant with CFBC (burning coal) versus a conventional CAES plant (burning premium fuel).
