CourseMarks Score®

9.0 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

10.0 / 10
This course was last updated on 12/2021.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

We analyzed factors such as the rating (0.0/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

7.6 / 10
Video Score: 7.8 / 10
The course includes 1h 36m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.

Description

Compressors are the main equipment used to transfer gases and raise their pressure. They are used in many different applications. You’ll see compressors in the oil and gas industry, whether in midstream or in downstream refineries, in petrochemical plants and in many other chemical processing applications. 
Compressors are relatively expensive compared to other pieces of equipment in a process plant. That’s why it is always important to understand their types, how they work, their main issues, and how to overcome them.
This course will try to cover the main compressor principles. We shall see how each of these principles works in the case of both centrifugal and reciprocating compressors.
We shall see how compressing gases which are compressible differs a lot from pumping incompressible liquids.
We shall go through dynamic compressors and their types, then positive displacement compressors and their types. This shall be through comparisons showing the advantages and disadvantages of each type.
In this course, We shall see how the compressor curve works and how to plot it against the system curve for both dynamic and positive displacement types.
We will see how the compressor and the process system interact with each other and how the compressor responds and interacts with process changes or disturbances.
We shall go through compressor surge, its effects, and best practices to avoid it.
We shall see different control methods to make sure we are on the required compressor operating point. This shall also include both centrifugal compressors and reciprocating compressors.
