Compressed Air Systems III: Controlled Methods

Compressed air is an extremely expensive utility. Therefore, efficient control methods can have a big impact on the energy costs of the system. The purpose of this course is to identify the various methods to control air compressor capacity, including methods that control the flow of air into the compressor and ways of controlling the loading of the compressor itself.
