Model Relaxations for the Fuel Cost Minimization of Steady-State Gas Pipeline Networks

  title={Model Relaxations for the Fuel Cost Minimization of Steady-State Gas Pipeline Networks},
  author={L. Ridgway Scott},
Natural gas, driven by pressure. is transported through pipeline network systems. As the gas flows through the network, energy and pressure are lost due to both friction between the gas and the pipes’ inner wall, and heat transfer between the gas and its environment. The lost energy of the gas is periodically restored at the compressor stations which are installed in the network. These compressor stations typically consume about 3-5X of the transported gas. This transportation cost, is… CONTINUE READING
