Analysis of Alternatives in PHX ModelCenter Enables Rapid Selection of Optimal Centrifugal Compressor Configuration

PHX ModelCenter is a decision support environment for performance, cost, and operational assessments, offering unique trade study, visualization, and optimization tools specifically designed for AoA and used frequently by engineers and analysts who are evaluating multiple design concepts. By enabling AoA for sizing and cost analysis, thousands of design choices were quickly and easily reduced to the best few alternatives. In addition to time savings, the economic implications of pinpointing viable design options at the conceptual stage are significant. By conducting AoA in the conceptual phases of design, time is not wasted on infeasible or weak design possibilities. Instead the optimal machine configuration, factoring all requirements and desired outcomes, can be determined efficiently and effectively.
