Course Description

Centrifugal and axial compressors are susceptible to surge which can cause catastrophic damage to your turbomachinery train.

The Anti-surge controller is one of the most critical turbo-machinery control applications that protect a compressor from surge by continuously calculating the distance between the compressor’s operating point and its surge limit line.

The controller modulates a recycle or blow-off valve to prevent the compressor’s operating point from reaching the surge limit while maintaining other process variables within safe or acceptable limits.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify a variety of compressors
  • Explain surge phenomena and consequences on computer operation and process stability
  • Interpret and recognize the controller’s functions
  • Analyze, identify and resolve alarms
