    OverviewEnergy has quickly become the largest controllable cost in a process enterprise. Companies that implement energy management strategies can turn this growing challenge into an opportunity for competitive advantage.

    NovaTech Conductor™ Energy Asset Management Solutions (EAMS) allow an enterprise to make informed decisions relating to energy costs, asset life, and emissions goals with a common, real-time and veri�able data set. Using Advanced Process Control, plant operations can move closer to ideal set points without compromising safety or quality.

    Conductor EAMS provides the greatest bene�ts to process components with high or variable energy demands such as boilers, chillers, distillation, and central power produc-tion. Conductor also bene�ts processes with high raw material costs, tight security or quality requirements, control requirements beyond PID loops, or that are in�uenced by other processes within the plant.

    “...energy costs are often upwards of 25% of the plant's total operating cost... ’best-in-class’ companies were able to reduce energy consumption by 15% year over year...because of energy management programs.” -Aberdeen Group

    Informed Fuel Selection

    E�ective energy management begins with a survey and analysis of your various energy inputs (electric utility, CoGen, natural gas, alternative and renewable sources), process energy loads (motors, chillers, boilers, etc.) and process dynamics. The initial survey emphasizes the veri�cation of energy usage and e�ciency data. This comprehensive understanding of process energy usage highlights areas of most pressing concern and greatest opportunity.

    In order to a�ect the greatest savings and achieve optimal bene�ts, energy management has to be approached holistically. Energy supply costs are reduced by reviewing the utilities design and optimizing the utilities operation. For maximum e�cacy, energy demand also has to be reduced by reviewing and optimizing the production process.

    Real- Time Data DisplayKey Performance Indicator dashboards can be used very e�ectively to display relevant data in any format. The smartboards are easy to con�gure, and provide all the pertinent real-time data to the various role players in an organization at a glance. Data can be displayed by division, by plant, by plant section, or even by unit, and access can be restricted based on permission criteria.

    Decision makers can set process and energy related strategies based on historical baselines, and operators can run the process to meet energy usage goals through drill-down interactive displays.Since the smartboards are web-based, the view can include KPIs, important statistics, e-mails, weather conditions or any other relevant, web-based information.

    Multi-fuel systems must consider a number of variables when planning for the most economical fuel selection. Some examples of these include spot market pricing, utility hedging, and commodity contracts which can include tari�s, rates, penalties, and futures. Conductor will be a bene�t to these customers by collecting and calculating fuel costs in real-time so informed business and operational decisions can be made.

    Advanced Process Control (APC) �ne tunes the controls and demand pro�les of boilers, chillers, and other process components. APC is powered by the industry-leading AspenTech® DMCplus. This multivariable model-predictive controller interfaces directly to processes via the DCS or indirectly through process information management systems, and is capable of safely pushing processes to multiple constraints simultaneously. This control system is proven to solve large-scope problems without compromising the control system service factor.

    Asset monitoring and optimization bene�ts extend beyond the plant maintenance organization. Real-time data can be used by operations, maintenance, engineering, and management to monitor and increase asset reliability and productivity. This information can help identify opportunities to improve facility utilization by maximizing the use of the most energy e�cient equipment, bridging equipment performance gaps, and revealing improvement opportunities in a more timely manner.

    As laws and regulations for emission controls are passed, emissions monitoring will represent an increasing opportunity for cost savings. Conductor can gather and report emissions data for your plant and convert this information into economic terms describing the plant energy and asset pro�le. Modeling can be used to estimate current emissions if the plant infrastructure does not currently support monitoring. Furthermore, modeling can be used to run “what if” scenarios and can be applied to predict future emissions.

    Results

    Using a combination of Model Predictive Control and Statistical Process Control, APC reduces variability of key variables by 50% or more, increases yield of more valuable products, and maximizes throughput and pro�t by moving the process to an optimal set of plant constraints. APC is like having your best, most experienced operator on duty 24 hours a day!

    1. Each manipulated variable is moved through a series of setpoints.

    2. The e�ects of those changes on the dependant variables is recorded.

    3. A dynamic matrix model is created that can predict plant behavior based on the interactions of all manipulated and dependant variables. Control actions become anticipatory rather than reactive, and plant operations are optimized while maintaining plant safety and compensating for process disturbances.

    Even enterprises designed for the highest levels of energy e�ciency will require ongoing adjustment in response to declining equipment e�ciencies, relative fuel costs, and other dynamics. A common problem in most plants is that there is no “single version of the truth”. Usually, information is collected and stored in many di�erent forms and locations. This makes it very di�cult to maintain a central database (if there even is one) and make relevant information available to key decision makers in the enterprise.

    A combination of NovaTech hardware and networking services integrate real-time energy, utilities, and process data from across the enterprise into relevant and actionable HMIs for plant managers and operators. The data is collected from various plant systems including Weighbridge, laboratory (LIMS), MES, PLC, DCS, SCADA and other systems and applications such as manual entry, bar coding, etc.

    OverviewEnergy has quickly become the largest controllable cost in a process enterprise. Companies that implement energy management strategies can turn this growing challenge into an opportunity for competitive advantage.

    NovaTech Conductor™ Energy Asset Management Solutions (EAMS) allow an enterprise to make informed decisions relating to energy costs, asset life, and emissions goals with a common, real-time and veri�able data set. Using Advanced Process Control, plant operations can move closer to ideal set points without compromising safety or quality.

    Conductor EAMS provides the greatest bene�ts to process components with high or variable energy demands such as boilers, chillers, distillation, and central power produc-tion. Conductor also bene�ts processes with high raw material costs, tight security or quality requirements, control requirements beyond PID loops, or that are in�uenced by other processes within the plant.

    “...energy costs are often upwards of 25% of the plant's total operating cost... ’best-in-class’ companies were able to reduce energy consumption by 15% year over year...because of energy management programs.” -Aberdeen Group
