This PI System plugin module calculates real time financial losses or savings (in $/hour) based upon given operational parameters in comparison to the target values. It is extremely valuable in identifying opportunities for immediate savings.
Operational parameters are compared to expected values and corresponding effects on unit heat rate (or efficiency) and corresponding fuel costs/savings are calculated real-time and displayed. Parameters include Main Steam Pressure & Temperature, Reheat Temperature, Condenser Pressure, Cooling Tower Outlet Temperature (when Cooling Tower Performance is included), Feedwater Temperature, Hotwell Temperature, Attemperation Spray Flows, & Auxiliary Station Service Power.
Operators can customize the manufacturer’s design curves upon installation and can easily adjust them anytime afterward.
