Considerations on the automation of a natural gas compressor station
“Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu, Romania, Department of Industrial Engineering and Management, Emil Cioran str., 4, Sibiu, Romania
Natural gas compressor stations are very important components of a natural gas life cycle. Unfortunately, in Romania most of the existing natural gas compressor stations are equipped only with old-type automation systems, with a high degree of physical and moral wear. The current paper describes the main elements and functions of an automation system that was implemented in a natural gas compressor station, offering an improved pressure control function, but also the possibility to control the compressors from a distance, for example from a central dispatching station.
