Flow plays very important role in petroleum refineries.Flow measurement is quantification of bulkfluid movement.Flow simulator along with flow computer can control the flow through the different flow streams in the industries.Flow algorithm is stored in the flow computer,depending upon requirement the set point is given to the flow computer.Flow computer gives control signals for the flow simulator.Depending upon the control signals from flow simulator,flow computer adjust the opening and closing of the valve.Ultimately based upon opening and closing of the valve,the flow through the streams can be controlled according to the requirement.Using this type of flow simulator we can also check the flow computers to detect the malfunctioning in their operation.
