Power plant operators have been analyzing plant performance for many years using a variety of techniques. This information has typically been available to only a select number of users such as process engineers, leaving the broader community oblivious to this important information.
Exaquantum/PPC makes this information available to all relevant users in a form which can be readily understood enabling broader usage and thus greater benefits to the business as a whole.
Exaquantum/PPC is especially beneficial for users of Yokogawa distributed control and plant information systems (DCS and PIMS) as it leverages the existing infrastructure and presents performance information using consistent graphical formats in a familiar environment. Equally it can be applied to any other installed systems by leveraging open standards.
Exaquantum/PPC supports a wide range of Power Plants including the following elements:
Exaquantum is a comprehensive Plant Information Management System (PIMS) incorporating a data historian for real time and historical data, alarms, and events along with aggregations, role-based views and KPIs, graphical HMI, trends, reports, and integration with different systems. It provides a cetralized repository for users throughout the plant and is the foundation for most of Yokogawa's production, safety, and alarm optimization solutions and operator effectiveness solutions. Exaquantum can acquire data from all facets of a process and transform that data into easily usable, high-value actionable information that can be made avaialable across the enterprise.
Exaquantum /PPC provides real-time power performance calculations for primary and auxilliary equipment (such as boilers, turbines, heat exchangers) as well as overall plant efficiency.
The configuration environment is easy to use with pre-built blocks based on ASME PTC that are used to defined specific plant configurations. 'What-if' analysis provides the ability to examine different plant operating scenarios and the impact.
The solution provides key performance indicator dashboards for targeted useres to increase performance awareness that enables improved power plant efficiency, optimized maintenance, better asset utilization, bottleneck identification, and energy loss identification for continuous improvement and identificatin of optimal operating conditions.
