2FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS 2.1General Control Objectives Vendor's control system shall meet the following control objectives: (a) Provide control of the overall compressor system to maximize efficiency whilst accurately meeting process control objective requirements, as specified in the process control descriptions. Protect each stage of the compressor from surge-induced compressor damage and process upsets with minimum recycle. Minimize process upsets resulting from recycle control. Minimize adverse interactions between the above control functions. Provide uninterrupted control in the event of hardware failures.

(e) Provide integration with the Distributed Control System (DCS) and with the Rotating equipment Data Acquisition System. (RDAS)

Anti-surge Controllers shall calculate compressor operating point deviations in a manner that is invariable to change in inlet conditions, such as pressure, temperature, gas composition, compressor polytropic efficiency, rotational speed and inlet guide vanes position for the axial compressor. The preferred method of meeting this requirement is to compute the distance between the operating point and incipient surge limit using an equation based on the specific compressor curves, for ratio of polytropic head to suction volumetric flow. The algorithms used shall be based upon either Shell Report MF 85-0260, the compressor vendor's requirements or the system vendor's proven technology. Each anti-surge control module will manipulate a recycle valve to maintain an adequate, but not excessive, margin of safety between its compressor stages operating point and surge limit, as described below. Anti-surge control modules shall provide optional limiting control of both discharge and suction pressure, consistent with the primary goal of preventing surge. The anti-surge control module shall have three protection shields against surge. (f) The first shield shall be a control module that opens the recycle valve in case the operating point crosses the configured control line. The control line shall have a margin to surge that is dependent on the speed at which the operating point is moving towards surge. The second protection line shall be located between the surge limit line and the surge control line. When the operating point of the compressor crosses this line, the anti-surge control module shall increase its output with an increment in order to avoid surge in the compressor. The size of this increment shall be dependent on the speed at which the operating point is moving towards surge. The increment addition to the output of the anti-surge control module will decay at a configurable rate. The third protection line shall be located to the left of the surge limit line. When the operating point of the compressor crosses to the left of this line, the control module will assume surge in the compressor and increase the initial margins of the first two shields with some predetermined, configurable level. In addition, the anti-surge control module shall include the capability of detecting actual surge by measuring and recognizing a pre-defined surge signature. When a pre-defined number of surges are detected the compressor shall be tripped via the IPS.



The anti-surge control module shall be capable of recognizing transmitter failures. In case such an error is detected, the anti-surge control module will switch to a more conservative control algorithm and alarm this to the operator. The anti-surge control module shall be able to differentiate between a flow transmitter failure and a actual surge incident, taking appropriate action based on the findings. For compressor protection (i.e. to enable the Compressor to be shutdown by the plant IPS after multiple surges or after a suitable delay), the Anti-surge Controller shall incorporate a separate surge detector which provides contact output (minimum 300 msec duration) to the IPS. Surge detection shall be based on a defined algorithm Provisions must also be made for recording and displaying the maximum observed rate of change for each of those variables as an aid to basing these thresholds on the results of a surge test on the given machine. Anti-surge Controller shall exchange information with all other Anti-surge Controllers regulating the same compressor in order to implement appropriate feed-forward control responses that minimize loop interactions and maintain the quality of surge protection. The Anti-surge Controller shall incorporate features that fully open the recycle valve, by IPS, when the compressor is shut down. These states shall be selected on the basis of binary signal inputs and/or the compressor's rotational speed, flow rate and suction pressure.

Provisions for manual control of the recycle valves shall be included.

Each Anti-surge Controller may include control and protective functions which manipulate the analogue signal output to a recycle valve and also a safeguarding function which will operate a switch to provide an output after a preset number of surge events have occurred.

All field signals to and from the system shall be intrinsically safe. Barriers, if required, shall be active type and located in the MDF. Barriers and MDF will be supplied by others. Controller configuration and tuning parameters shall be stored in non volatile Read Only Memory for long term storage, as well as in RAM for short term storage.

This monitoring system shall have a composite main display that includes one compressor map, an overview window, an annuciator window, an operator advisory window, and five trend graphs. The compressor map will instantaneously plot the operating point, surge limit and surge control curves for a single compressor stage. Choke limit and choke control lines, when required, need to be implemented as well. The coordinates for this plot shall be in terms of head vs. flow, the actual coordinates will vary depending on the application. When plotting discharge pressure or compressor ratio against flow, all curves need to be dynamically updated to reflect changing inlet conditions. The overview window must provide instantaneous digital display of up to fourteen process variables and be capable of presenting all the defined compressor map data. An automatic critical event archiving shall be included. When a critical event, such as an approach to surge, is detected, all variables are recorded before, during, and after the event.
