It is critical that the PLC be able to model unit loads and flows, and also select safe and optimum load steps.
Engine performance parameters should be modeled up front, prior to conversions for clean air compliance.
Risk analysis can be used to determine station integrity, compare stations, and allocate resources.
Steady-state/transient simulation analysis helps define station layout and equipment selection.
Operators of reciprocating compressors can improve accuracy through the use of a series of flow equations.
Research effort seeks to provide realistic options for lowering NOx on legacy reciprocating engines.
