Oil and Gas industries use the air compressor to
control a process and generate the compressed air utilized to
make combustion. Technically speaking, generally in industry
two types of compressors are used to generate the compressed air
that are known as: The dynamic compressor and the positive
displacement. The present study aims at controlling the
compressor inlet guide vane angel or IVG, the blow off valve and
the compressor engine by the controller; such that aims of
controlling the pressure are achieved at the suitable point. In a
laboratory design, centrifugal compressors with the IGV angel
and the blow off valve are assessed by the step 7-300 Siemens
PLC controllers.
