This module provides guidance for operating staff to improve compressor efficiency and recognize when fuel consumption is higher than the minimum achievable. The determination of fuel gas efficiency is made by prescribed calculations that yield the efficiency of the compressor based upon the fuel input and power required for the application. This module focuses on the application of efficiency calculations based on engine loads.
