Control & Operation of Centrifugal Gas Compressors



This hands-on, three-day course uses dynamic simulation models to give a practical introduction to centrifugal gas compressors and their operation in process plants. The practical exercises and workshops will use dynamic simulation models of compression systems running on PCs. They will be easy to use and the participants will require no prior knowledge of dynamic simulation.

Key topics covered in the course include compressor performance and selection, instrumentation and control, surge protection and compressor operation. Case studies will be used and participants will be encouraged to solve problems for themselves.

Suitable For: Engineers with little previous knowledge of compressors and who are involved in the design, control, operation or commissioning of process plants.
