  3. Assumption : There is an upstream vessel and through a liquid or L/V control valve, fluid is transferred to a lower pressure Downstream vessel which needs to be protected for GBB.
    Easy Step : Consider upstream vessel design pressure - Downstream vessel design pressure = DP across the control valve.
    Estimate the gas flow through the control valve at that DP, SIxe the PSV for that gas flow.

    Rigorous step : Since the above step indicates many failures at the same time (more than double jeopardy), we can fine tune the situation to a single jeopardy situation and estimate some what less amount of gas flow requirement during GBB.

    A dynamic study is involved to do this calc; steps are below

    Step 1: consider normal liquid level in the upstream vessel, at design pressure. This liquid needs to be drained off to DS vessel before you start the GBB; Assumption : feed stopped due to Pressure / level switches actuation. Otherwise it is difficult to have GBB as you have liquid and gases flowing in.

    Step 2: Estimate the actual pressure now in the US vessel after draining off complete liquid from the vessel.
    Step-3: Now the upstream vessel pressure - DS vessel pressure is the system DP. This has to be consumed by all fittings between the both vessels. Calculate the fraction needs to be conumed across the control valve.
    Step -4: calculate the Gas flow at this DP, which will be some what less to the other easy step.

    Size the PSV for this gas load.

    Hope this help.
