The global compressor control system market is expected to thrive on the high demand for automobiles across the globe.

A Programmable Logic Controller, or PLC as it is also known as, is a ruggedized computer that is used for industrial automation. These controllers are capable of automating a particular machine function, process, or even an entire production line.

In this report on global compressor control system, programmable logic controller is considered to be a component of compressor control system.

A few key features set programmable logic controller apart from industrial PCs, microcontrollers, and other industrial control solutions are as follows.

  • Input / Output (I/O) – The programmable logic controller CPU keeps and processes program data. However, the input and output modules link the programmable logic controller with the rest of the machine. These I/O modules are those that supply information to the CPU and generate specific results. I/O can be either digital or analog.
  • Communications – In addition to input and output gadgets, a programmable logic controller might also need to establish connection with other types of systems. Programmable logic controllers offer a wide range of ports and communication protocols to make sure that the programmable logic controller are able to communicate with these other systems.
  • Human Machine Interface (HMI) – To interact with the programmable logic controller in real time, users require Human Machine Interface or an HMI. These operator interfaces could be simple displays, with a keypad and text-readout, or large touch-screen panels similar to consumer electronics. They allow users to input and review information to the programmable logic controller in real time.

The programmable logic controller receives all its information from connected input devices or sensors; it processes the collected data, and generates outputs based on pre-programmed parameters. Depending on the outputs and inputs, a programmable logic controller is capable of monitoring and record run-time data. Recorded run-time data comprise operating temperature and machine productivity, generate alarms if a machine malfunctions, and automatically start and stop processes. These controllers are a flexible and robust control solution, adaptable to almost any application. The global compressor control system market is forecasted to witness growth owing to the benefits offered by programmable logic controller.

Compressor control system is that system which converts the power into some other form of energy like the potential energy that was stored in compressed form of air. A compressor is an essential equipment to deliver air power, which is compelled by asynchronism motor. A compressor is functioned by the motor with an adjusting rotation speed. The air pressure in the pipeline is measured to be very at a certain range. Its one end is under the rating pressure of the pipe, and another end is above the rating pressure of the equipment using the compressive air. There are two ways to measure the air pressure in the pipeline to content this demand. The first method is start up and stop the motor frequently for adjusting the air pressure in the pipe. The other method is to use pressure valve with an objective to limit air pressure in the pipeline.

Compressor Control System Market Dynamics:

The major driving factors of compressors control system are expanding power generation, and growing petrochemicals, metals & mining, oil & gas and refining industries. Moreover, extend its application such as long-distance gas & oil pipelines and city gas distribution. Another driving factor of compressor control system is useful in petroleum industries such as oil & gas, and refining is expected to witness significant improvement in this market. Some major challenges in the compressor control system such as excessive noise in the operation time, excessive oil consumption, air leaking from inter stage safety relief valve when the compressor is pumping and excessive belt wear. There are some opportunities in the compressor control system such as increased natural gas extraction from shale gas basins is anticipated to impact the compressor control system market favorably. Manufacturers focus on improving reliability and efficiency of compressors to gain a competitive advantage. Adoption of compressor control systems is expected to increase in both new and old compressor systems, which will have a significant impact on energy consumption and optimize the compressor output completely. Some latest trends in compressor control system include technology being developed, and other novel air compressors like screw air compressors, oil free dental air compressors, etc. which come with increased capacity. Other trends are like technology advancement in piston processes due to this less maintenance is needed in the compressor.
