Compressor selection is one of the primary functions in operation of natural gas pipelines, and a major concern of the task is to minimize operating costs. This study presents a comparison of three automation techniques for compressor selection: mixed integer linear programming, genetic algorithms, and expert systems. In compressor selection, dispatchers… CONTINUE READING
