Aspen Utilities Planner calculates a utilities forecast based on actual and future production demand while considering penalties, peak demand charges, and load factor contract clauses. The optimum utilities production plan accounts for operational, economic, and environmental constraints.
Aspen Utilities Planner features a loadable add-in enabling the user to work in concert with Microsoft Excel to simulate, reconcile, and optimize a flowsheet. The add-in provides a spreadsheet environment through which model execution results can be imported and interpolated.
The Online Optimizer feature connects a model to a real-time data historian, and uses collected operating data to construct an enhanced 24/7 operation model. The results can be displayed in any plant information system to provide plant operators real-time guidance to achieve optimal operation with lowest utility cost.
Aspen Utilities Planner can be used in conjunction with many other products in the aspenONE family, such as Aspen HYSYS, AspenPlus, Aspen PIMS, and more using the Microsoft Excel interface. The integration between these products facilitates data exchange with Aspen Utilities Planner to expedite the model development and data collection processes.
