Este libro blanco presenta un enfoque sistemático para evaluar los posibles escenarios de fallo abierto y fallo cerrado para numerosos tipos de diseño de estaciones reguladoras y, a continuación, emparejar la probabilidad de estos eventos con las posibles consecuencias, incluyendo la salud y la seguridad, los daños a la propiedad y los impactos de la interrupción de la red.
The gas industry has relied on pressure regulators for over two centuries to maintain a constant, reduced pressure to deliver gas safely to consumers. While modern gas regulator stations are highly advanced, they are not without vulnerabilities that can pose a significant risk to the safety and reliability of operators. Consequences of the failure of gas regulator stations may include customers unable to heat their homes during frigid temperatures, damage to equipment, and even loss of life in the event of an explosion. Utilities are under constant pressure to demonstrate that they are operating their systems at the highest level of safety, compliance, and efficiency. In fact, the National Transportation Safety Board in the United States has already started to lay the groundwork for increased regulations nationwide, one aspect of which is the vulnerability of the regulator stations themselves.
