Reciprocating Gas Compressor with Speed Modulation of Compressor Driver for Pulsation Avoidance

Abstract: 

A method for reducing pulsation in a gas compressor system. The compressor driver (engine or motor) is operated at a modulated engine speed. The average of the modulated speed is selected to achieve a desired pipeline flow. The modulation characteristics are determined to optimally reduce the pulsation response of the compressor system.
