Utilities are constantly forced to optimize plant operation and to strictly control life cycle cost in order to protect the investment. ABB offers substantial support to meet these demanding challenges. By combining process know-how with technological advances in software engineering, ABB has developed innovative plant optimization packages for total plant-, boiler- and turbine operation.
- Adaptable optimization solutions for different plant types and sizes
- Online detection of sub-optimal operation modes for immediate increase in plant efficiency
- Improvement of plant availability and predictive maintenance strategies by detecting material degradations in early stages
- Advanced control strategies for stationary power plants allow participation in grid frequency control, thus increasing sales price levels for produced electricity
