Original Paper


The article deals with the problem of developing an algorithm for controlling the humidity of natural gas and controlling gas flows during extraction from an underground storage facility in order to meet customer requirements. The problem is solved by linear programming methods. The results obtained make it possible to monitor the quality of the gas flow in the part of its humidity and to perform flow control to ensure the required humidity level. The proposed algorithm can be implemented in the form of programs written in the languages of IEC 61131-3 standard in industrial controllers when developing information-measuring systems.
