Advanced Empirical Modeling Software Provides Early Warning of Gas Compression Machinery Failure
Case studies from the Panhandle Eastern pipeline illustrate the efficacy of the empirical modeling technique in the gas compression industry. First, the engine exhaust gas temperature model normalizes individual power cylinder exhaust temperatures for key independent variables such as engine speed and timing. A case study showing early warning of a fuel injector gasket lead will be presented. Second, the compressor efficiency model detects early signs of compressor cylinder failures. The compressor model analyses the compressor cylinder performance to detect early signs of valve failure, liquid accumulation, and bad pocket operation. A case study showing early detection of a leaking compressor valve will be presented. Finally, the engine efficiency model normalizes engine brake specific fuel consumption for key independent variables to provide early warning of loss of engine or compressor efficiency
