Advanced Software for Demand and Energy Reduction in California Pipelines
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
This proposal involves three different approaches to energy reduction; two involve advanced pipeline optimization software, and the third is the use of specialized additives, called Drag Reducing Agents or DRAs. DRAs have already been shown to be effective cost-control tools. This project will show that refocusing their impact for minimizing energy use will compound their effects when used simultaneously with pump selection optimization software. Due to the complexities of the hydraulic, economic, and optimization calculations, software is necessary just to help choose the best pump combinations.
