Simulation modeling of a gas network
The purpose of simulation modeling is to determine actual gas flow rates in gas network pipes, pressure at all pipe junctions, and disruptions to consumers’ mode of operation.
A mathematical model simulating a gas network is used to complete verification tasks and analyze changes in hydraulic operating conditions.
The calculations and analyses are performed across a gas network:
- when disconnecting individual pipes of a gas network
- from a source (gate stations, gas pressure regulator stations, etc.)
- from a pipe junction or pipe (implemented to simplify the analysis and modeling process when using large diagrams)
Furthermore, in accordance with STO GAZPROM GAS DISTRIBUTION 12.2.2-1-2013 , standard, it is possible to calculate flow capacity of gas supply and gas distribution networks.
