Abstract—A Coal Quality Detection Management System is developed in Visual C++ based on Client/Server mode, and the system combines several techniques, such as the open database connectivity, serial communication, and Excel object linking and embedding. The system is composed of three modules: a receipt/allocation module, a data acquisition module, and a detection data management module, and the modular structure endows the system with a series of functions, such as real-time data collection, query results, data processing, data auditing, data storage, and report printing. Recently, the system was applied in two coal-fired power plants for managing coal quality detection, which greatly improves the detection efficiencies and reduces the manual works.

Index Terms—Coal quality detection, Power plants, Fuel management, Client/Server mode, Open database connectivity, Serial communication
