Helping utility managers meet their strategic and operational targets: increase availability and flexibility while reducing emissions
Flexibility in producing energy becomes more and more important. Producing just in time exactly what is required while taking the fast changing energy prices into consideration. IPCOS helps to meet these requirements for the production of steam, electricity, hot and cold water under increasing strict environmental regulations. We provide solutions that bring together these incompatible demands.
Save fuel and prevent venting in steam networks
The real time optimal management of utility boilers and steam grid operations (venting, let down,..) results in very large monetary savings and has a large impact on the emission of small to large utility systems. No need to vent steam on a permanent basis that can act as an fast responding energy buffer.
Optimal control of the combustion process results in reduced emissions while respecting all the safety rules. No need to run at excessive oxygen levels because it is easier to operate. Keep on eye on your budget and the environment.
Measure and report all individual energy flows with the help of data reconciliation
Modern integrated sites consist of utility plants, units that consume energy and units that produce energy. If everybody needs to get a correct invoice or payment it is important that all streams are measured and reported accurately. It all starts with data reconciliation of all your flow measurements.
Optimal production of energy
Increase in Boiler Efficiency (ASME PTC4) for power plants (100-1000MW)
Reduction of CO2 and NOX emissions
benefits due to less venting in a steam network of a refinery.
benefits due to fuel gas savings for utilities of a refinery.

PID Tuning & Control
Bring process and control know-how together in the best control design for your plant. Tune all the PID loops such that every single loop in your plant is in auto mode and keeps all your process parameters at the desired setpoint 24/7.
Benchmark your alarm situation and then develop an alarm management philosophy document tailored from best-practice templates with buy-in from process engineers, operators, and controls staff. The document serves as a guide for maintaining a discipline of alarm management through the plant lifecycle.
Softsensors are used for the prediction of emissions in real time. This approach makes it possible to perform closed loop control on emissions. Softsensors are also used to measure e.g. the mass flow of powder coal in power plants, allowing for optimal combustion control.
Advanced Process Control
APC systems keep your plants at the optimal operating point by adjusting the key setpoints in real time to improve throughput while reducing the energy consumption and emissions.
Drive down process emissions through effective monitoring and visualization. Meet environmental goals by tracking and reporting emissions & targets.
Build by process control engineers from IPCOS for engineers in the industry. INCATOOLS has all you need to tune ALL your loops and to build a complete MPC system from scratch and maintain it for many years.
