The energy efficiency of cooling the natural gas With variable frequency drive fans

Abstract

The relevance of the problem of reducing energy costs for gas cooling at compressor stations of main gas pipelines is determined by the high energy intensity of cooling plants. The article deals with the energy performance of gas cooling units with discrete and continuous speed control of air cooling fans. The method of estimation of increase of power efficiency at use of continuous regulation is developed. The estimates of electricity consumption in the assumption of a harmonic law of change of temperature of external air during the day, the results of calculations allow us to estimate the energy saving potential, and can be used to predict energy consumption.
