Plant Performance Calculations 

Valcon developed numerous on-line performance calculation packages. Using modern communication methods data from any plant control system can be retrieved into on-line performance spreadsheets, purpose-made programs or Valcon proprietary performance calculation package. Any of the approaches can be modified to specific on-site conditions and performance calculation requirements. Results of the performance calculations highly contribute to the optimization of technological processes and can also be used for reporting, billing and invoicing

Typical on-line performance calculator produces the following data:

 

  • Basic operating parameters;

  • Power produced/required;

  • Efficiency – thermal/mechanical;

  • Heat rate;

  • Losses;

  • Controllable Losses;

  • Required/design parameters;

  • Deviations from design parameters.


Results are calculated on the plant and device basis (pump, compressor, turbine).
