    Problem Identification

    The evaluation of a power plant's performances in real time is made difficult caused by the multiplicity of factors and elements having an effect on the plant and its equipment. Yet, monitoring the plant's thermal efficiency is a crucial factor for profitable operations. It is also difficult to decide if an observed decrease in efficiency is due to the natural wear of running equipment or some incident that requires a timely response.

    About the Service

    Building a model of the plant's thermal efficiency allows forceasting the plant's performance as it should be in real time under optimal circumstances. By comparing the forecast with actual data with the appropriate granularity, from plant level to each equipment level, any difference between the model and the data can be detected. By analysing the performances in real time, efficiency improvement and failure prediction are made possible.

    This service is part of our Electric Power Business Platform. It can be freely combined with the other services on the platform.


    Customer Benefit

    Based on the comparison of real time data with accurate models, prediction detection of performance erosion and the forecasting of equipment failures before the failure occur allows for improved efficiency and availability rates.

    Why Toshiba

    1. Our experience as a plant manufacture allows us to build accurate thermal efficiency models
    2. Human machine interface suitable for evaluation
    3. Customers can modify the model themselves if necessary (for exemple simulating a machine replacement)
