Real-time pipeline surveillance - Statefinder
The Synergi Pipeline Simulator engine can be used on-line by using real-time process measurements from SCADA or DCS to drive control points in the model. This provides an accurate and detailed real-time decision support tool for pipeline operators. Statefinder helps pipeline controllers operate safely and economically, even in critical situations.
For liquid pipelines Statefinder software can provide batch and interface tracking DRA tracking, wax build-up on crude oil pipelines, scraper tracking and for gas pipeline or network operators – quality/ownership tracking, gas blending, and linepack management.
Most on-line pipeline simulation applications directly use process data received from SCADA after rudimentary checking. Synergi Pipeline Simulator verifies that all the data is a correct hydraulic fit, applies sophisticated error distribution, and then uses the data. This makes Synergi Pipeline Simulator highly tolerant of data errors or outages.
