Power & Utilities
Change comes to the Power & Utilities Industry
Like most process segments the Power & Utilities sector spans a wide array of businesses, ranging from vastly different approaches for electrical power generation, storage and distribution to the essential treatment of water and waste. Common elements that link these diverse sectors are their collective pursuit for improved reliability and their continued reliance on PID-based control.
As the dominant regulatory control technology the PID controller provides an effective means for maintaining safe, efficient process operations. When equipped with appropriate capabilities for monitoring, analyzing and optimizing the means of production, Power & Utilities companies have been shown to gain advantages that are both significant and sustainable.
Our technologies are widely deployed across the Power & Utilities sector, and our expert engineers bring years of direct experience working in this and related process industries. Our value is based on a broad understanding of critical power generation processes and on deep domain knowledge of PID-based controllers.
Most every aspect of a power facility is monitored with the notable exception of control loop performance. With its ability to proactively identify and isolate mechanical, interaction and tuning issues, PlantESP equips engineering staff with the advance warning they need to keep generation assets humming along.
PID tuning software never seemed a good fit for the power industry until now. Plants across the industry are putting an innovative technology to work that accurately tunes PIDs. LOOP-PRO is industrial-grade technology that involves six (6) simple steps. What’s more, it can handle your plants oscillatory, noisy data.
Regular tuning of PID controllers has been proven to improve plant performance, but for many in the power industry control loop tuning is little more than a ‘black art’ with no rhyme or reason to the process. We’re experts in PID control and can share a simple, repeatable method for optimizing loop performance.
What Customers Say
I had to retune 23 PID loops, four of them cascading, and most interacting with each other. I only had one day to do them all, and LOOP-PRO TUNER is the only reason I was able to get everything re-tuned in time for Factory Acceptance Testing.
