PipePatrol Predictive Modeling is a simulation tool to predict pipeline conditions from current operating and manually definable static data. The Predictor uses a CFD-based simulation kernel, permanently supplied with real measurement data from the pipeline network. The simulation takes place in parallel, and presents the thermodynamic and fluid-mechanical conditions.
The online monitoring and static prediction modules forecast the future events and states of the simulated pipelines. With a Rule Editor, limit values can be assigned to field transmitters, where violation leads to an alarm event. Different types of rules can be defined, such as different values for pre- and main alarms. The forecast plots allow the user to view both the current signal values and the calculated future values. Possible rule violations are graphically represented and can be exported for example as a CSV file.
