A hybrid control system has been proposed for compressor surge, which combines the active method with the passive method. A bleed valve was selected as the actuator in the proposed system. As a submode of the hybrid system, a fuzzy logic based active controller was designed to extend the stability operating range of the compressor. Meanwhile, a surge avoidance controller was used as a backup-mode to improve the safety performance of the system. The simulation results showed that the compressor can operate steadily outside the surge line under active control mode and can be dragged back to inside the surge line by the passive control mode when the alternative fails. One advantage of the proposed control system is that it does not need a model of the compressor, and it works on any compression system. Passive surge control is a reliable and widely applied method in industrial compressors. The hybrid system makes the active control approach closer to the industrial implementation.
