This three day course will use dynamic simulation models to give a practical introduction
to centrifugal gas compressors, their turbine drivers, and their operation within a typical
gas compressor station. This course will include operating principles, mechanical design,
and control strategies.
Suitable For: Process engineers, supervisors, and operation/maintenance personnel
working on natural gas compressor stations.
Key Topics Covered:
● Compression principles
● Compressor performance
● Simple anti-surge control
● Compressor operations
● Compressor protection
● Introduction to gas turbines
● Overview of each turbine section
● Control strategies and start-up/shutdown
● Control Systems
