Calculating gas pipeline operating time

Gas pipeline operating time with a disconnected source

ZuluGaz Online Help «Calculating gas pipeline operating time on residual pressure with a disconnected source»

The purpose of these calculations is to determine how long a gas network is able to operate on reserve cylinder gas following a disconnection or shutdown of its source (of medium and high pressure).

The calculations enable users to determine:

  • Reserve cylinder gas under normal and standard conditions, m3
  • Operating time on residual pressure following a source disconnection, hour
  • Gas flow rates in gas network pipes and pressure at all pipe junctions for minimum permissible operating conditions of the network at residual pressure

These calculations require a license for simulation modeling, and should be performed only after you have completed simulation modeling!
