Advanced Process Control Suite
Advanced Process Control(APC)
A Distributed Control System (DCS) is an enabling technology that provides a platform for further improvement to realize greater benefits from the Unit. It also serves to facilitate further process and operational improvement that is otherwise limited by the nonavailability of technology that is mature and easy to use.
With Advanced Process Control, the DCS is able to push the process to a higher level of productivity, and is able to deliver bottom line improvement. Currently gaining popularity in the process industry is Multi-Variable Model Predictive Control Technology. Experts unanimously agree that APC is able to deliver sustainable measurable benefits simply by stabilizing the plant to yield consistent quality products. The logic for this is that control strategies should be developed with an understanding of the process and its nuances; the control system on which the APC would sit; the need for integration with wider plant objectives, as well as a knowledge of base layer control loops. It is also important to consistently translate economic objectives into operating objectives.
APC allows for companies to operate its facilities with greater safety, cost effectiveness, reliability, and compliance with environmental factors. When jointly used with other unit-operation optimization technologies, APC can prove to be extremely beneficial. Optimization is not a one-time event, it has to be a continuous effort to enhance operating performance in ever-changing conditions.
