1. Introduction

The bypass valve in the below network can protect the can protect the pump, such that it can
work at the required minimum flow rate when the main valve in the downstream pipeline is
closed. The position of the bypass valve is regulated by a PID controller and is fully closed
when the main valve is open. The scenario considers the variation of flow in the pump and the
dynamic response of the bypass valve when the main valve is fully open.

2. Network Settings

2.1 PID Controller

The input set point should be based on the minimum flow rate required by the pump, whilst also
considering a safety margin. The other parameters (gain, reset time and rate time) can be fine-
tuned to ensure the stability and fast response of the control system.

2.2 Transfer Function 1

This is used to model the dynamic characteristics of the flow sensor.

2.3 Transfer Function 2

This is used to model the dynamic characteristics of the bypass valve.

2.4 Main Valve

The main valve is opened in 30s.

3. Calculation Results

The bypass valve starts to close once the main valve is open. The flowrate of the pump is
always above the required minimum flowrate of 2500 l/min during the simulation. The bypass
valve works as expected in this scenario.
