Robust Design Optimization of a Multistage Compressor for Surge Avoidance

Watch the webinar to see how to complete a multi-objective optimization of a dynamic process, integrate modeFRONTIER and AVEVA Dynamic Simulation and save computational time and engineering effort.

Ensure Stable and Robust Operation while Saving Cost and Time

Compressor surge is a form of aerodynamic instability in axial and centrifugal compressors involving airflow oscillations in the axial direction which could result in blade fatigue or even mechanical failure.

Design methods are initiated by doing 'steady-state' calculations. However, due to the dynamic nature of the phenomenon and control responses, a high-fidelity dynamic simulation of the compressor system is required for a rigorous design.

Running multiple dynamic scenarios for different configurations in order to identify the optimal design requires a considerable amount of time.

The webinar will demonstrate how to:

  • complete a multi-objective optimization of a general-purpose multistage compressor model,
  • integrate modeFRONTIER and AVEVA Dynamic Simulation (formerly DYNSIM),
  • optimize a given industrial process to ensure stable and robust operation at low cost while saving up hours of computational time.

Duration: 1 hour
