Engineers learn theory and operators learn from experience, but how do we ensure both theory and experience are combined to full advantage?
Both groups need to understand the fundamental principles, the interaction with the driver limitations, be able to understand the application of process control and be able to spot problems. This course has been prepared to give a practical understanding of reciprocating compression in the real world, combined with modern control systems and the pursuit of optimum performance.
It is an intensive course which relies heavily on the use of many computer simulation practical examples to explore compressor operation, its control and optimisation. With common first days between our compressor courses, reciprocating, screw and centrifugal compression can be combined in our compressor week to give a comprehensive overview of the whole compressor family.
