What’s New in aspenONE APC V10?
See how APC family has been improved to power your success, including Variable Dynamics and Deadtime Scaling, CV Optimization in Smart and enhancements to Aspen DMC3 Builder.
Aspen DMC3 Robust Control
Demo showing a controller before and after Robust Control. Turning on Robust Control stabilizes a controller for a temporary period until the model can be updated to reflect true plant behavior.
Introducing Aspen DMC3 Builder
Introducting Aspen DMC3 Builder, an integrated platform used to build and deploy all APC controllers from start to finish. Improves the APC workflow, increases efficiency and preserves process knowledge.
Introducing Smart Tune - A New Aspen DMC3 Engine
Aspen DMC3 Smart Tune technology empowers users to make APC controllers more agile and easy to setup by simplifying tuning and configuration. The intelligent solver in Smart Tune enables you to configure economic objectives directly instead of tuning cost factors. This approach combined with a web based view provides a much greater insight into controller strategy.
Aspen DMC3 Smart Tune Demo
Compares the traditional method of tuning a controller to Smart Tune which allows users to directly specify operational objectives. Breaks down how the new algorithm works through animations and summarizes the benefits: reduce efforts and complexity, quickly adapt controller to changing economic conditions, process changes or model updates, easily simulate, troubleshoot and modify controller strategy online and increase operator acceptance and controller uptime.
Aspen DMC3 Demo: Constrained Model ID
Lucas Reis demos 3 scenarios where the Constrained Model ID feature can be used: zero gain constraints (set gains equal to zero), mass balances (ensure they make physical sense) and gain ratios (set gain ratios equal to one, or gains equal to each other).
Aspen DMC3 Adaptive Process Control
Adaptive Process Control: sustain peak APC performance, optimize during testing, commission new controllers faster, reduce effort to re-vamp a controller, reduce skillset required, work on multiple projects in parallel, maintain adequate controller behavior.
Four Factors for a Successful APC Program
A 27-year veteran in the refining industry/APC Evangelist describes 4 crucial factors of a successful APC program. This video illustrates why APC is important for refineries and how with the right program in place refineries can maximize their margins.
Adaptive Process Control Application Overview
