Energy costs and Drag Reducing Agent (DRA) costs are both significant expenses for operating pipelines. Optimization studies can be performed to determine the lowest cost operation considering: which pumps to run, what station control pressures to set, and what DRA concentration to use.
Watch this webinar to learn how to configure SPS to integrate energy and DRA costs for our models. You will also learn how to use Model Lab to run lots of different cases efficiently for our optimization studies.
