CMAP: Compressor Performance Evaluation Tool
Software dedicated to the prediction of the performance of the centrifugal compressor in different operating conditions. The application allows you to analyze the operation of the compressor, to predict changes in performance and simulate the expected production and operating parameters in the new conditions.
Compared to other professional programs for performance evaluation, CMAP offers great new features with easy step-by-step operations. CMAP also allows some additional tasks useful for comparing the expected performance of centrifugal compressors with those of the measured data. This feature is particularly useful for evaluating the performance of the compressor during the field test. Analysts and engineers using CMAP will have all the quantitative information on the state machine for the setting of diagnostic strategies and maintenance operations.
To use CMAP, the starting point is the availability of a map of the performance of the centrifugal compressor, with the composition of the corresponding mixture of gas and thermodynamic conditions (pressure and temperature). Having provided this data as input, the software will perform all the complex calculations in a fully automatic way and produce the compressor performance expectations for the inlet pressure, the inlet temperatures and compositions of the gas mixture for the different / the design / the reference.
The software is easy and intuitive, and will also provide automatic archiving of data in a project archive for easy reference. The evaluation of the differences in expected performance will be a powerful tool for decision support in diagnostics and maintenance.
CMAP is based on an approach to modeling the latest machinery and incorporates the most advanced thermodynamic theories for predicting the properties of real gas mixtures. CMAP is designed to guide you through streamlined workflows designed to perform complex analysis and to provide the functionality of the software to calculate in a very simple way.
