Early Event Prediction with Geometric Process Control: Sensitive Models that Direct Operators to Mitigate Developing Situations
Early event detection gives operators time to respond to process problems, keeping the plant running and allowing remedial actions like maintenance to be arranged.
Geometric Process Control (GPC) models provide significant benefits over traditional methods. They are more sensitive, giving operators additional time to react. They indicate the process variables involved in the issue, proving essential information to operations to identify and respond to the issue. And they are straightforward for engineers to build and maintain, requiring only process history and desired operating objectives without needing extensive mathematics.
In this webinar you will see how you and your engineers can build multi-variable process models for event prediction using process understanding, a glimpse into technology and how the model is applied in the control room, and see some results obtained by users.
