An evaluation of systems for control of fossil fuel power plant boiler and stack implosions has been performed using computer simulation techniques described in a companion paper. The simulations have shown that forced and induced draft fan control systems and induced draft fan bypass systems reduce the furnace pressure excursions significantly following a main fuel trip. The limitations of these systems are associated with actuator range and response time and stack pressure excursions during control actions. Preliminary study suggests that an alternative control solution may be achieved by discharging steam into the furnace after a fuel trip.
