Centrifugal-Compressor Surge is part two of the Dresser-Rand Turbo Products two-part training series.
This intermediate operator-oriented course discusses the surge phenomena that can occur when operating a centrifugal compressor. It describes the warning signs of surge, the consequences of surge, and the strategies and benefits of controlling surge. The course also identifies the components of a typical performance curve and their relationship to the safe operation of a centrifugal compressor. A variety of interactivities and periodic review questions challenge students to recognize the characteristics of surge and how to avoid it during normal operation.
