Control Systems Independence
AVEVA APC easily integrates with distributed control system (DCS), programmable logic controller (PLC)-based control systems, and plant information system databases from all major suppliers. AVEVA APC is compliant with the latest industry standards for data connectivity, such as OPC, allowing direct and efficient access to process data.
A Dynamic Model of Your Process
AVEVA APC provides tighter control of key process variables, which are based on a dynamic model. This effectively de-couples interactions that would occur if the same loops were controlled independently by single loop controllers. The result means a more economically-advantageous operating point.
A linear programming technique, together with a steady-state model and an economic performance objective function, enables AVEVA APC to identify the optimum operating point based on maximum throughput, minimum energy consumption, or a balance between these and other performance objectives.
Advance Process Control for Mining ; APC for Mining, Minerals & Metals (MMM) from AVEVA allows the operation to function much closer to the operating limits by reducing variations in the process. The hybrid rule-based & model-based predictive control (MPC) package can often reduce variability by a standard deviation of two or greater and, as a consequence, improves profitability by enabling operations within process constraints
