Compressed Air is one of the forms of energy that finds use in most industries, in some industries like Textiles it contributes to significant portion of the overall energy consumption.
Compressed Air Networks i.e. multiple number of compressors operating in tandem, offer potential for optimisation and improve energy productivity CFM/KW by around 5%-7% (in some cases going as high as ~12%)
Multiple factors must be looked at while considering optimising the generation and distribution of Compressed Air and the overall network.
CAN- Compressed Air Network Optimisation Algorithm
Our Algorithm works on the operational data I.e. data from each of the compressor, operating behaviour and over a period suggests optimisation possibilities resulting in better utilisation of the network, correct operation settings, resulting in energy productivity gains.
Factors/Aspects considered by the algorithm:-
- Weather Conditions
- Set Points for each compressor
- Operational behaviour of each compressor under the influence of the network.
