OPTIMIZATION OF PIPELINE NETWORK FOR OIL TRANSPORT
Keywords:pipeline network, oil transport, capital cost, optimization, nonlinear programming
AbstractIn this work the pipeline network for oil transport has been optimized. The network layout has already been given, the flow rates are specified and the inlet and outlet pressures are defined. The capital cost of such a network has been minimized. From many feasible combinations of section diameter distributions the aim was to find the optimal one. The problem has been solved by applying nonlinear programming.
