Modelling Control Loop in a Water Injection System
An engineering company can be requested to conduct a study into the controllability of a water injection system as well as pressure surge analysis. PIPENET Transient Module can perform both water hammer calculations and control systems modelling together, which saves a lot of engineers’ time and effort as they do not need to develop multiple models and conduct simulations using various software tools.
The schematic below shows a water injection system with a control loop for the overboard dump valve. For the sake of clarity, the control loop has been highlighted in red.
