Axial and centrifugal compressor control is exceptionally challenging due to the extraordinary speed and severity of problems and the extreme
consequences in terms of plant safety and performance. The fastest and most dangerous phenomenon is surge. An axial or centrifugal compressor in surge can reverse flow in 0.03 seconds going from a large positive flow to a large negative flow. Often, the negative flow is not measurable by flow meters leaving the actual situation to your imagination.
Continuous availability and the need for always-on applications have always been critical requirements in the industrial control environment. Virtualization can help you realize increased up-time and quicker disaster recovery from hardware failures, therefore keeping your process running.
