Course Description
This course aims to offer a logical approach to the design of centrifugal gas compressors, which will concentrate on the integration of the discipline experts – Process, Mechanical, Instrumentation/Control into a cohesive team. It considers the design of control & operation strategies for complex compression systems. It looks at the use of dynamic simulation studies to review and improve the design of compression systems and enables operations personnel to understand the key safety and operability issues associated with the compression system. A compression system design will be developed during this course linking all the topics covered, including a short safety review. All individual engineering disciplines are integrated on the course to form a cohesive design team.

Who Should Attend
* Engineers involved in the design of process plant, which includes centrifugal compressors.
* Discipline Engineers – Chemical, Mechanical, Instrument, Control, Process who have knowledge of compressor design from their perspective but want to work better as a team.
* Process plant operation and supervisory staff, particularly those who liase with project teams and have input into process designs, and are involved in commissioning.
* Project Engineers
* Engineers responsible for managing and specifying dynamic simulation studies.
