Overcome six key challenges in the design of positive-displacement machines

On-Demand Webinar | 43 minutes

Optimizing the design of positive-displacement rotary machines using system simulation

Resonance, losses and pressure peaks problems are common with positive-displacement machines. Minor design oversights could lead to performance limitation or safety risks. Adopting system simulation approach at the conception stage can help you eliminate costly late design changes and develop energy-efficient performant machines.

Simcenter Amesim combines system modeling and simulation to help you predict positive-displacement units (pumps, compressors) performance across all critical attributes earlier and throughout the entire product lifecycle. In this webinar, we demonstrate how Simcenter Amesim can help you efficiently describe and analyze the full dynamics of rotating machines using an axial pump and a methane reciprocating compressor as examples.

You will learn how to:

  • Properly size volumetric rotary machines
  • Accurately control the flow regulation
  • Optimize the geometry to reduce flow/pressure ripple
  • Identify possible modal couplings between the pump/compressor excitation and the upstream/downstream components
  • Analyze the integration of the pump/compressor in the complete multi-domain system
  • Achieve the best trade-off between various attributes such as performance, energy consumption, NVH, safety, and durability
