Abstract

In the Industry it is very important to know the power required to operate an actuator. In order to optimize this power requirement one should have an accurate knowledge of the fluid parameters in the system. Knowledge of properties of fluid at significant points in the system enables one to consciously avoid overdesigning of system components. For instance whenever fluid is supplied to a system through pipes, a pressure drop occurs. To ensure that this pressure drop does not affect system parameters the industry often supplies an excess pressure to the system and the remaining is throttled at the destination. This results in power loss. This project aims at finding out the exact requirement of pressure that must be supplied at the inlet to a particular application used in industry. For this i will be finding out the pressure drop occurring while the fluid is flowing through pipes through computational fluid dynamics and analytically. This project aims to provide the industry with a standard database for ready future reference. Using this reference the industry can optimize the power requirement at the input to minimize wastage.
