REAL TIME ENERGY MEASUREMENT book
This chapter deals with real time energy measurement from the industrial gas users point of view. It illustrates how real time energy measurement by the user allows him to optimize his combustion process utilizing automatic combustion control and high speed measurement devices for feed forward and feedback systems. The demand for gas components will also determine the degree of stripping by the processor or producer who knows what quality of gas will come from a storage field. There are many reasons that the quality of pipeline gas is not stable. Measuring Heating Value is necessary to measure heating value to determine selling price and combustion efficiency for given burners. Numerous instruments are currently used for determining the heating value of fuel gases. These include calorimeters, gas chromatographs, stochiometric instruments and gravitometers. There are many other variations of the calorimeter based blending operation which includes either wild flow blending or feed forward control.
