Studies have shown that nearly 40% of all process loops are under performing. Your operation can lose millions of dollars each year due to process variability and poor control performance. Now, with embedded intelligent control, the DeltaV system gives you a systematic way to automatically monitor, diagnose, and improve process control performance.
By embedding learning algorithms directly into the DeltaV system, embedded intelligent control can systematically apply the process knowledge it acquires to:
- Locate hidden variability and under-performing control loops
- Monitor control performance against model-based performance benchmarks
- Identify problems and diagnose causes such as faulty valves or process interactions
- Prevent downtime, increase availability
- Reduce variability, increase quality and throughput
- Sustain gains from performance improvements.
DeltaV embedded intelligent control provides you a full array of applications including enhanced PID control, automatic variability inspection, tuning, fuzzy logic control, model predictive control, and neural networks. Never before has a control system provided a full suite of embedded advanced control applications that enable you to get the most from your plant, with the least amount of effort.
DeltaV advanced control applications are part of the same, easy–to–learn and–use environment as standard regulatory control. PID, Fuzzy, Predict, and Neural function blocks are all available for you to drag and drop from the Control Studio pallet–it's that easy!
The DeltaV system uses validated data and equipment health information from intelligent field assets to ensure appropriate control action is taken, preventing unwanted shutdowns when an asset fails.
All DeltaV control functionality runs in the DeltaV controller, including advanced control algorithms. This ensures that critical strategies run in a high-speed, rugged, optionally redundant environment.
With its embedded learning capability the DeltaV system provides continuous closed loop adaptive control to automatically respond to changing process conditions. The result: more precise control and efficient operations, and the flexibility to confidently respond to changing market demands. By reducing process variability, embedded intelligent control keeps your process running normally and in control. This prevents abnormal situations, such as process disturbances, upsets, and events that can lead to unwanted shutdowns or hazardous consequences.
