Safety devices: axial displacement, vibrations, bearing and thrust bearing temperatures, oil pressure, etc.
Changes in gas velocity and pressure in a centrifugal compressor.
Mass and volume flow rate as a function of pressure, temperature and gas composition.
Discharge temperature, power absorbed as a function of the gas composition and the operating conditions.
Compressor performance: influence of process parameters, impeller velocity and geometry.
Characteristic curves of the circuit and the compressor.
Influence of the operating conditions: inlet pressure and temperature, gas composition, rotation speed.
Flow rate control. Adaptation to service conditions.
Surge and antisurge devices. Standard control. Start-up and shutdown.
Monitoring the compressor and auxiliary equipment during operating conditions. Troubleshooting and safe operation.
DYNAMIC SIMULATION - APPLICATIONS
Use of a dynamic process simulator.
Exercises on start-up and shutdown phases.
Applications using disturbances generated by the lecturer.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
describe the technology of centrifugal compressors,
explain operating conditions and main disturbances,
be involved in troubleshooting analysis.
Ways & Means
Case studies based on industrial feedback.
Various technical drawings of actual compressors.
Use of a dynamic simulator.
