"Energy Management System for Real Time Optimization and Monitoring" to be presented by our Oscar Santollani, Senior Vice President, Visual MESA Software Business, KCB at 2:30 (Track 5)

What attendees will learn:

  • Economic results obtained from the application of the EMS in refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants
  • Integrated Energy Management System (EMS) industrial application that includes capabilities to support coordinated decisions in several levels: operations optimization (online and real-time, either in open or closed loop), offline use for engineering studies and key performance indicators monitoring/dashboarding
  • How real-time optimization is solved through a Mixed Integer Non Linear Programming (MINLP) optimizer integrated to the simulator


Related Industries

  • Chemical

    Chemical plants rely on continuous and batch production processes, each posing different requirements for a control system. A continuous process calls for a robust and stable control system that will not fail and cause the shutdown of a production line, whereas the emphasis with a batch process is on having a control system that allows great flexibility in making adjustments to formulas, procedures, and the like. Both kinds of systems need to be managed in available quality history of product, and to be able to execute non-routine operations. With its extensive product portfolio, experienced systems engineers, and global sales and service network, Yokogawa has a solution for every plant process.
