CASE STUDY OF CAPACITY & POWER COMPRESSION USAGE OPTIMIZATION IN A PIPELINE SYSTEM
Nowadays, machines efficiencies are looked at closely to avoid misusage of compression capacity and save energy costs. However, a compression- transport system would include more than one machine and station working together at different conditions. Therefore, a detailed analysis of on analyzing natural gas transport system flow maximization while optimizing the usage of the available compression power. Various operating scenarios and machine spare philosophies are considered to identify the most suitable conditions for an optimum operation of the entire system.
