Leveraging Plant Process Data for Advanced Analytical Diagnostics

The RELIABILITY Conference Learning Session - 38:02
by Jamie Dugan, Luminant

Traditional alarming associated with plant process data typically does not go far enough in providing adequate margin to ensure acceptable levels of equipment reliability. Through the integration of remote monitoring, modeling and diagnostics, Luminant’s Power Optimization Center (POC) identifies, forecasts and advises plant personnel of emergent issues impacting power production. Emergent equipment issues are communicated directly to plant control room operators. For longer term issues, plant engineers and other support organizations are engaged.

The POC provides technical expertise, operating and maintenance recommendations, and field support to facilitate optimum plant performance. The POC provides a mechanism for knowledge transfer, sharing of best practices and leverages the strengths from a decade of operating experience supporting both nuclear and fossil fuel generation. The POC monitors real time plant performance, equipment critical to generation and other key process parameters in order to identify improvement opportunities.
