Enable Top Quartile Performance by Increasing Equipment Efficiency

The performance of equipment will deteriorate over time, resulting in lost efficiency, increased energy usage, and reduced throughput. Identification of the deviation from equipment design, combined with early detection, is vital to plant profitability.

Performance Advisor is an onsite, real-time application that calculates equipment performance using first principle models. It allows you to run your process more efficiently, track operating performance against targets, schedule maintenance activities, and determine the root cause of production asset inefficiencies.

How It Works

Achieve Optimum Performance

Performance Advisor calculates thermodynamic-based equipment performance using first principles models. These models monitor for deviations from design parameters on your critical machinery, including turbines, compressors, boilers and other production assets.

Performance Advisor allows you to run your process more efficiently, track operating performance against targets, schedule maintenance activities, and determine the root cause of product asset inefficiencies.

Benefits the Entire Facility

Operations receive real-time feedback of equipment performance to influence control changes and help meet operating targets.

Maintenance experts can access in-depth diagnostics to understand degradation trends and status by correlating condition and performance data.

Process Engineers can identify potential instrument problems, pinpoint degradation sources and evaluation the effectiveness of cost improvement actions.

Management understands the financial impact of performance deviations.

Real-Time Performance Monitor

The real-time information available from Performance Advisor helps you pinpoint opportunities for improvement that would otherwise go unnoticed. Differentiating features add value and knowledge to equipment operation:

  • Intuitive graphical presentation clearly displays current operating point compared to design criteria
  • Integration of real time process and equipment data with design information
  • Data connectivity to any source

Flexible Data Connectivity

Performance Advisor receives measurement input data from existing field instrumentation or from manually-entered values. Data can be connected to any manufacturer’s DCS or data historian.

Leverages Open Protocols: Data connectivity methods are based around industry-standard OPC and web services. Additionally, through the OSIsoft architecture, hundreds of unique connection protocols are available for data connectivity.

Availability of Data Values: Performance Advisor can support data that are entered several times per shift in addition to continuously measured data.
