KROHNE’s PipePatrol Health Check Program Improves Overall Pipeline Operations



Evaluating and Guiding Pipeline Operators in the compliance requirements, selection, integration and management of leak detection technologies and methodologies

Beverly, MA: KROHNE, a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of solutions in industrial process instrumentation, announces the PipePatrol Health Check Program to support pipeline operators in the compliance requirements, selection, integration and management of leak detection technologies and methodologies. The program is built upon KROHNE’s four decades of international experience in pipeline leak detection and supports operators using all types and makes of detection technology.

Leak detection is a mission critical capability for pipeline operators and increased public attention to safety and environmental concerns have led to more stringent regulatory requirements. The PipePatrol Health Check program responds to these needs by providing a systematic and comprehensive analysis that is available in three components: The Snapshot, the Checklist, and the Company Readiness Review.

The Snapshot analyzes the design of the pipeline’s leak detection implementation, starting with an examination of the pipeline itself, including the topology, pipeline material, wall thickness, fluid transported, and the likely consequences of leaks. techniques. The analysis satisfies the PHMSA and 49 CFR 195.444 requirements mandating a process for evaluating leak detection capabilities.

The Checklist advises the operator on establishing a strategy that achieves continuous improvement of leak detection performance, consistent with API 1175 and is part of a leak detection strategy. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are measured against the operator’s desired performance, industry best practice and Best Available Technology (BAT).

The Company Readiness Review analyzes alarm management and response procedures, based upon actual, past leak events, with the overall goal of identifying opportunities for improvement.

NH Research Launches Next Generation Regenerative Grid Simulator for Testing High Power Grid-Tied Applications



New Regenerative Grid Simulator emulates real world conditions for testing electric vehicle charging and grid-tied applications.

NH Research Inc. (NHR), a leading provider of power test solutions for the automotive, renewable energy, energy storage, and critical-power markets, has launched the 9510 Regenerative Grid Simulator.

The 9510 Regenerative Grid Simulator is the next generation AC test solution for testing and verification of high-power grid-tied applications in compliance with regulatory testing standards, worldwide. The built-in power amplifier mode for Power Hardware in the Loop (PHIL) applications provides further testing and simulation capability ideal for research labs. The new 9500 platform is the perfect complement to the industry leading NHR 9300 DC test platform to simplify total electrification testing.

Sustainability initiatives across the globe are accelerating the electrification of vehicles, charging infrastructure, new energy deployments, and grid modernization. Increasing demands on the grid and new opportunities for distributed energy resources such as solar, wind and energy storage, require modern test solutions to simulate the grid.

Regenerative Grid Simulator Model 9510 – NH Research (NHR)
“The 9510 provides modularity, flexibility and next generation performance to test a broad range of grid-tied products in a compact, easy to use platform. Its advanced hardware performance coupled with PHIL and AC loading functionality equips engineers and researchers with the tools needed to emulate real world conditions in one asset.” said Brian Hsu, Product Manager at NH Research.

Select power levels ranging from 50kW, 75kW, or 100kW modules with a programmable frequency between 30 and 120 Hz. Modular and scalable power is available in 100kW modules up to 1.2MW. The output can be AC, DC, or AC+DC and the AC can be single, split or 3-Phase.

The 9510 is the industry’s most modular, flexible, highest performing, and compact regenerative grid simulator, power amplifier for PHIL applications with an optional 4-quadrant AC load capability. Ideal applications include testing EVs, micro-grid, PV inverters, V2G and energy storage applications.

NHR’s 9510 Regenerative Grid Simulator delivers the following key benefits:

Scalable power available from 100kw modules up to 1.2MW for future increased power demands. Same unit can act as the master or parallel auxiliary unit.
Widest true power operating envelope covers the broadest selection of grid-tied products with a single product. (Voltage: 150V to 350V with full power)
Power Amplifier mode for PHIL with low latency at 50μs enables emulation of real-world conditions
High accuracy current measurement increases performance and optimizes testing.
Built-in galvanic isolation eliminates the need for an external transformer and simplifies test set-up.
Highest power density with small footprint provides significant energy, cost, and space savings
Optional 4 Quadrant AC Load capability provides flexibility to source and load with a single device
