Aircraft Refuelling Systems
PIPENET Transient module is an incredibly versatile tool. Its applications cover various industries, networks and types of analysis. In this application bulletin we consider aircraft refuelling systems in three international airports. In order to show the versatility of PIPENET Transient module we set different aims in modelling the three systems.
- Soekarno-Hatta International Airport – The aim in modelling this system is to size the accumulators in order to keep the pressure below the maximum allowable pressure.
- Kuala Namo International Airport – The aim of this simulation is to save cost by reducing the number of accumulators.
- A new international airport – In this case the delivery point at the aircraft has a flow control valve. The aim of this simulation is to analyse the stability of the control system and its ability to maintain the flow when an isolation valve is closed.
