PID Performance Optimisation


..scientific, systematic  &  fully automated tool for PID optimisation

technical features

* Offline Data Read : Automatically reads OP/PV/SP/MODE trends for pre-defined set of PID loops from plant DCS (Historian) for required date/time period – on demand or as scheduled task.

* Data Health Index : detects and highlights bad, missing, outlier data. Generates single Data Health Index to show confidence for further usage.

* PID Performance Assessment : advanced statistics on process variables, several KPIs including utilization factor, control action accuracy, valve travel index, oscillation issues -etc) – graphical summary of overall PID health Index for groups of PIDs relevant to equipment /section /department /plant performance

* PID Performance Diagnosis : Advanced analytics like classification of loops based on performance Index, diagnosis for under-performance, trend assessment, investigation for oscillations, control element abnormalities, design and tuning issues and more…) – based on scientifically proven algorithms

* PID Performance Optimization : assessment for deviations from optimum limits, investigation on PID constants, smart PID tuning assist, offline PID simulation, detection of best performance patterns (shifts, operator, unit, month, season wise assessment of performance), alarms for preventive maintenance of controller components. 

* Powerful Visualization : Innovative and User friendly graphical display of results which can be summarized and customized based on relevance at different levels (Chief/Manager/HoD/Engineer/Supervisor..) and different groups (plant, unit, section, equipment…). 

tool features 

* Installable on stand alone PC or accessible on plant intranet or can be configured on cloud (for remote assessment)

* Double authenticated secured communication with automation server.

* Compatible with different DCS setups from variety of automation OEMs and OPC compliant automation systems.

* Does not access real time plant DCS and does not disturb plant operation

* Data for Configurable set of Process variables can be extracted in any usable format for Designated period of time.

* Data collection can be setup as automatic scheduled task and data processing and reporting is run automatically after that.

* Customized configuration settings using same variable TAG names as used in plant DCS.

* AUTO reporting, email and SMS facility for highlighting issues.
