Title: PUMP SYNCHRONIZATION SYSTEM AND METHOD
Abstract:
Disclosed is a pump management system configured to manage operation of a plurality of positive displacement pumps. The pump management system manages operation of the plurality of positive displacement pumps to substantially maintain non-coincidental operation of the pumps. Operation of the positive displacement pumps in the non-coincidental mode reduces pressure fluctuation stresses on downstream components.
