Dynamic simulation for FGRS design and controllability analysis

In this study, a dynamic model of a flare gas recovery system (FGRS) with a high-pressure eductor compression system was developed in a dynamic simulation for process design verification, control scheme evaluation and an availability study.

In this study, a dynamic model of a flare gas recovery system (FGRS) with a high-pressure eductor compression system was developed in a dynamic simulation for process design verification, control scheme evaluation and an availability study. FIG. 1. Conceptual flow diagram of an FGRS. To reduce flare gas emissions, save wasted energy from refinery factories and meet environmental regulations, an FGRS was set up before the flue gas entering the flare. In this FGRS, the useful components of flue gases from different factories in a refinery were recovered with a high-pressure eductor, desulfurized through a desulfurization treatment process and the
