There are 4 types of Simulations...
- Supply side calculated flow
- Demand side calculated flow
- System inc. flow control
System measured flow
This Simulation type focuses on compressed air generation.
System inc. flow control:
This Simulation type provisions for the addition of a flow control device where compressed air generation equipment is typically installed in groups either side of a flow control device with a 'base' pressure target used for equipment downstream of the flow control device and a 'trim' pressure target used for equipment upstream of the flow control device.
System measured flow:
This Simulation type substitutes calculated flow (calculated flow is derived from the respective 'compressor tables') for measured flow which is derived from one or a group of flow sensors.
This Simulation type is only available for Simulations that are linked to a compressed air audit!
Demand side calculated flow:
Demand side calculated flow focuses on compressed air 'process' demand. Process demand is derived by taking into account 'System volume' (a value configured in Audit Wizard when a site and energy profile was established) and System pressure characteristics.
This Simulation type is only available for Simulations that are linked to a compressed air audit and where 'System pressure' was logged!
