Category: Predictive systems and calculations
The efficiency of combustion can be calcualted based upon the flare gas composition, volumes and data on the flare design from which exit velocities and mixing can be estiamted. These calcualtions can either be done by the operator directly or obtained from pre-built simualtion software. Recent advances incomputing have supported development of predictive systems providing real-time feedback on calculated values. In all cases, the quality of calculations is dictated by the quality of data that is available on flare volumes, compsition and flare design.
