The maintenance of plant control performance is typically one of the most technically difficult aspects of establishing and sustaining new control technologies. Understanding the process unit's economic goals will help the control engineer choose the right optimisation point to drive the plant controller to meet these goals. Many operators and engineers face difficulties even in running controllers continuously. TRACE helps you broaden your visibility with expert guidelines in order to take appropriate action.
The operation of controllers becomes increasingly challenging as the number of variables or process interactions increase. Operators often switch off controllers when they do not work how they would like them to work. The possible reasons for not being able to run a controller and getting sustainable benefits are:
TRACE is a proprietary software that helps the plant manager, engineers, and operators measure controller performance and objectives met. TRACE web viewer provides a browser-based monitoring and reporting interface to the database online, helping not only to find the bad actors but also to fix them with appropriate actionable steps to support control execution.
Some of the advantages of our system includes, but is not limited to:
Some of the common benefits which can be reaped from the system are:
Helium's software solution has enabled us to get daily recommendations on our plant’s controllers and led to a significant increase of our controller performances on a daily basis. This is also making our production team more responsive and helping them to operate the plant in the best possible way and pushing it to the optimum. The discussions as a result of the daily process have led to engagement of our plant and technical services.
