One challenge for the simulation and optimization of real gas pipe networks is the treatment of compressors. Their behavior is usually described by characteristic diagrams reflecting the connection of the volumetric flow and the enthalpy change or shaft torque. Such models are commonly used for an optimal control of compressors and compressor stations [4,7] using stationary models for the gas flow through the pipes. For transient simulations of gas networks, simplified compressor models have been studied in [1–3]. Here, we present a transient simulation of gas pipe networks with characteristic diagram models of compressors using a stable network formulation as (partial) differential‐algebraic system.
