Title
(EN) PUMP STATION AND PIPELINE OPTIMIZATION
(FR) STATION DE POMPAGE ET OPTIMISATION DE PIPELINE
Abstract
(EN)
The pump systems (pump + driver) used in a pump station are selected based on the type of fluid or batch. The selection is of the more efficient pump systems for that batch. Less efficient pumps are avoided. When a new batch is detected, the selection is performed again for that new batch, which may result in a different combinations of pump systems for a given pump station. If variable speed pump drives are available, the efficiency at the desired speed is used for selection. The cost of energy (utilities) by pump station may alternatively or additionally be used to select the speed or combination of pump systems. The pump station and pipeline operation is optimized for efficiency of pump systems and/or cost of energy (utilities) for the different pump systems based on pipeline inventory and local utilities tariffs.

Les systèmes de pompe (pompe + pilote) utilisés dans une station de pompage sont sélectionnés sur la base du type de fluide ou de lot. On sélectionne les systèmes de pompe les plus efficaces pour ce lot. Les pompes moins efficaces sont évitées. Lorsqu'un nouveau lot est détecté, la sélection est de nouveau réalisée pour ce nouveau lot, ce qui peut conduire à une combinaison différente de systèmes de pompes pour un poste de pompage donné. Si des entraînements de pompes à vitesse variable sont disponibles, le rendement à la vitesse désirée est utilisé pour la sélection. Le coût d'énergie (services) par la station de pompage peut en variante ou en outre être utilisé pour sélectionner la vitesse ou la combinaison de systèmes de pompes. Le fonctionnement de la station de pompage et du pipeline est optimisé en termes d'efficacité des systèmes de pompes et/ou de coût d'énergie (services) pour les différents systèmes de pompes sur la base d'un inventaire de pipeline et de tarifs de services locaux.
