Industrial Compressor Anti-Surge Computer Control
Abstract:The paper presents a compressor anti-surge control
system, that results in maximizing compressor throughput with
pressure standard deviation reduction, increased safety margin
between design point and surge limit line and avoiding possible
machine surge. Alternative control strategies are presented.
