Turboexpander applications for increasing the energy characteristics of the gas distribution station
1. Kazan Federal University, Department of high-viscosity oils and natural bitumen Analysis of a diesel fuel hydrotreater
In this work, we consider options of the use of turbo-expander units at gas distribution stations (GDS) for converting and using the energy in the gas trunk lines. A method for implementation of such projects is proposed with the use of equipment connection schemes proposed in the work. The optimal ways of usage of the obtained useful power on the turbo-expander shaft are presented; they provide the maximum positive effect from the project implementation. The evaluation of the implementation significance of the proposed activities is made.
