Load Balancing including Underground Gas Storage

This course explains how the market demand for natural gas changes by the hour, day, month and season and discusses the characteristics of the various load balancing options that are available to manage these load swings. Each of these options - underground storage (pore and cavern storage facilities), linepack, interruptible service and LNG peak shaving - is discussed in detail including operating characteristics and cost of service. Then the manner in which an actual gas distribution company designed a load balancing system to manage its gas swings is presented as an illustration.
