Location Aberdeen, UK

Date 22nd June 2020

Duration 3 days

Topic Process Plant

CPD Hours 21

Price IChemE member £2008 + VAT, non-member £2231 + VAT


A hands-on course which uses dynamic simulation models to give a practical introduction to centrifugal gas compressors and their operation in process plants. The practical exercises and workshops will use dynamic simulation models of compression systems running on PCs. They will be easy to use and participants will require no prior knowledge of dynamic simulation.

Learning outcomes

Delegates will have a good understanding of:

  • compression principles
  • process and control description
  • compressor operations
  • mechanical design - centrifugal compressors
  • instrumentation and control
  • recycle valve sizing
  • simple anti-surge control
  • compressor protection and complex anti-surge control
  • case studies.

Who will benefit

Engineers, operations and maintenance personnel who are involved in day-to-day operation or maintenance of centrifugal compressors.
