Abstract [en]

In this Thesis the Aspen HYSYS dynamic functionalities were explored in order to build a dynamic Wet Gas Compressor model. In particular the Automation feature was used to implement two different correction methods, interpolation and Wood?s correction, that accounts for wet gas impact on compression performance, in dynamic-state. This was done through the creation of a VBA script in Microsoft Excel. The implementation of the correction methods showed to be fast and effective. The HYSYS dynamic model and the VBA script were used to explore the performance of the compressor and the system under different operating conditions including wet gas showing that the total compressor power decreases when the GVF decreases. Additionally, the pipeline inlet pressure signal registered a maximum overshoot of 10% which seems to be acceptable. The major drawback of the Wood?s correction method is it can report higher efficiencies at wet gas conditions than a dry gas conditions, which is inconsistent with experimental tests
