Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

  • All built on the site model to provide consistent data
  • Built in Key Performance Indicators KPI calculators to swiftly configure
    • Plant Energy use and cost per unit of plant production
    • Equipment efficiencies (i.e., boilers, heaters, GTs, turbines)
    • Bias from performance curve
  • Equation block for custom calculations
  • Integration with existing Company Standard KPIs visualization dashboard

Industry Issues Addressed by Energy Monitor

Some sites have significant energy use but few or no optimization handles but.

Significant opportunities to improve unit efficiencies with proper monitoring.

Validated models are needed for calculating energy KPIs and other important operating parameters.

  • Efficiency, Energy Per Plant Rate, Energy Intensity Indices

Reporting requirements for energy utilization and emissions (greenhouse gases)

Slide 3 Key Performance Indicators Calculations
KPIs calculated based on the validated model
KPI Process Plant Cost Block
The KPI Process Plant Cost Block provides the necessary flexibility for the calculation and
historization of the Energy Indexes (for example, the Energy Intensity).
Historical Data equation blocks
The Historical Data equation block calculates a value as a function of simulation and optimization results,
and of online values obtained from Visual MESA sensors. The interface is based on the Equation block and the
Status Equation block. Results can be calculated at a given frequency and also historized.

Slide 4 Taking the complexity out of energy management
Visualizing Energy Performance Indicies (EPIs)
Energy Intensity Index, Fuel & Power Indicies
Advanced KPI reporting, alarming & trending
The KPI output sensors definition includes limits, targets as well as alarms historization
KPIs alarm can be trended with color codes
KPI alarm limits can also be trended
