Control Station recently announced PlantESP software for increasing plant production throughput and efficiency by leveraging historized data to optimize control loops. PlantESP proactively monitors control loop performance across a plant or even multiple sites. It helps users get to the root causes of common problems. Furthermore, it provides advanced warning of mechanical, tuning and interaction issues. PlantESP software communicates with all major historians including the AVEVA PI System, Aspen IP-21, Canary Labs and others using industry standard protocols. PlantESP’s overarching functions include a calculation engine, visualization engine and system operations. The calculation engine handles KPI target metrics, analysis and setting thresholds, power spectrum, cross correlation and corrective action recommendations. A visualization engine provides alerts, trends and gauges, reports and notes. System operations include historian communication and other application administration.
