Simulation-based optimization of transportation costs in high pressure gas grid
Mariusz Kamola , Piotr Przemyslaw Arabas
AbstractDesign, architecture and deployment details of a decision support system engineered to minimize operating costs of compressor stations in a gas network are presented. The system employs standard simulation software for pipelines, combined with well known optimization routine for finding optimal station control profiles in a repetitive way. A list of custom improvements is presented that make the system capable and robust enough to perform the optimization tasks. Implementation process is described in detail, covering the case of handling extra optimality criteria postulated by the user. Benefits from using the system and lessons learned are presented in the conclusions section.
