ABB Ability™ Expert Optimizer (EO) enhances control of the process using distinguished advanced process control techniques such as fuzzy logic, soft sensors and model predictive control (MPC). It tackles the complexity of cement processes, minimizes the effect of variability in feed and fuel and then drives the process in the direction that makes you money.
The installation topology allows it to be deployed both in ABB’s 800xA control system
and in third-party control systems
, making it applicable to any type of control system setup.
After individual implementation in each of the plant areas, a connection is made between all applications to further compliment plant-wide optimization.
Expert Optimizer at Votorantim Cimentos has been integrated with existing third-party control system. Mills have been modeled and commissioned with MPC, calciner, kiln and cooler commissioned with fuzzy logic.
