Abstract

This paper deals with the combined process of production of ferrosilicon and power in an arc resistance furnace. Selectedresults of mathematical modeling of key installation units are presented. To this end, mathematical modeling, balancemeasuringmethods and practical experience were used. From among the many activities required to implement theproject, the author chose ones associated with: the furnace hearth, after-combustion area, flue gases and recuperatorchannel as well as the recovery system and flow characteristics of the device. The presented modeling study forms partof a new design method termed the integration of computational processes.
