Effective 08-01-2023, AVEVA Advanced Process Control (‘APC’) solution will be provided by Schneider Electric.
Revolutionize your manufacturing process with AVEVA Advanced Process Control technology
AVEVA's Comprehensive Advanced Process Control provides cutting-edge automatic control solutions to help manufacturers address even the most complex manufacturing challenges and extract maximum value from their processes.
In today's economic environment, reducing capital budgets and overhead, rising manufacturing and energy costs, and intense global competition can make staying ahead a daunting task. With our advanced process control technology, manufacturers can improve production yield and quality, reduce energy consumption, and optimize their operations to continuously improve their bottom line. Don't let the economic environment get the best of you, take charge with AVEVA's Comprehensive Advanced Process Control.
AVEVA APC is comprehensive model predictive advanced process control software that improves process profitability by enhancing quality, increasing throughput, and reducing energy usage. It uses modern, state-of-the art technology to provide automatic control systems that are capable of releasing process potential across multiple industries including Refining, Petrochemical, Mining and Food and Beverage.
Data Collection and Analysis
AVEVA APC performs a series of process response tests, which collect dynamically-rich data with little or no disruption to normal process operations. Its statistical tools, including cross correlation and power spectrum density, allow an engineer to analyse signals for cause-and-effect interactions. These tools, coupled with operational experience, identify significant relationships that characterise process behaviour.
A Dynamic Model of Your Process
AVEVA APC provides tighter control of key process variables, which are based on a dynamic model. This effectively de-couples interactions that would occur if the same loops were controlled independently by single loop controllers. The result means a more economically-advantageous operating point.
Multiple Model Sets and Gain Scheduling
A unique feature permits the application of model predictive control to processes that require multiple models. For example, in blending applications or seasonal production, AVEVA APC uses online gain scheduling and can switch automatically between multiple model sets without turning the controller off.
A linear programming technique, together with a steady-state model and an economic performance objective function, enables AVEVA APC to identify the optimum operating point based on maximum throughput, minimum energy consumption, or a balance between these and other performance objectives.
Control Systems Independence
AVEVA APC easily integrates with distributed control system (DCS), programmable logic controller (PLC)-based control systems, and plant information system databases from all major suppliers. AVEVA APC is compliant with the latest industry standards for data connectivity, such as OPC, allowing direct and efficient access to process data.
