ABSTRACT
The aim of the experimental research was to determine the impact of changes in the air-fuel equivalence ratio during the combustion of wood pellet in the boiler on CO and NOX emissions. To realize the tests was used the 10 kW wood pellet boiler equipped with a dedicated wood pellet burner. Based on research was present the relationship between the level of harmful substances emitted under the influence of changes in the air-fuel equivalence ratio. Obtained results and conclusions based on them can be used to optimize the design of heating devices supplied by wood pellets.
