ABB Ability™ Predict & Control

State-of-the-art multivariate model-predictive process control for refining, petrochemicals, steam networks, district heating, district cooling, waste to energy and more

Predict & Control provides multivariable model-predictive control to ensure that process performance remains optimal and repeatable in all operating conditions and across all product changes.

Through state-of-the-art state space modeling to reduce process variations, Predict & Control increases throughput and reduce production costs by operating safely at the closest possible process constraint limits. 

The solution is suitable for processes within

  • Refining
  • Petrochemicals
  • Steam Networks
  • District Heating
  • District Cooling
  • Waste To Energy

And more

Much more than a Model Predictive Control algorithm

Based on new cutting-edge ABB technology utilizing state space models to accurately account for complex process dynamics with a reduced number of parameters, ABB Ability™ Predict & Control replaces the typical MPC collection of single-input/single-output (SISO) step response models with a true multiple-input/ multiple-output (MIMO) state space model.

Maximum flexibility at all times

ABB’s control algorithm is designed to provide maximum flexibility for users to define and achieve the plant’s process goals and control objectives.

It combines multi-objective optimization with prioritized control targets and time-domain tuning parameters.

Offline and online capabilities

ABB Ability™ Predict & Control is a native Windows client-server package comprising an offline engineering toolkit and online applications
