Market analysis of control loop performance Online-Monitoring Systems (OMS) for power plants (Enhancement of VGB-project 331)

Projektnummer 360

Within the framework of the VGB-project 331 a methodology for systematic evaluation of control loop performance in power plants was developed. This methodology is based on meaningful control performance indicators and provides a transparent representation of the achieved control loop performance. Based on the results, knowledge about the performance of commercially available OMS is very useful for power plant operators.

The proposed project enhancement is divided into two work packages:

Work package 1: Overview of Online Monitoring Systems

Within this work package, an overview of OMS shall be established. The functionality of the OMS will be analysed with respect to the following questions:

Work package 2: Comparison to the results of the VGB-project 331

The findings of work package 1 shall be compared to the results of VGB-project 331 in order to find out whether these can contribute to OMS. Topics of interest are:

The project is supported by the VGB-Working Panel Control and Instrumentation and IT.
