Control performance software

By Plant Engineering Staff March 7, 2007


DeltaV InSight integrated control performance software is now available as part of DeltaV version 9.3 release. DeltaV InSight is an integrated application used to monitor, analyze, diagnose and improve control loop performance. The Insight application includes the basic monitoring and tuning capability of its predecessor products, DeltaV Tune and DeltaV Inspect, plus advanced diagnostics and adaptive tuning capabilities made possible with embedded learning algorithms.

Process manufacturers each year lose capacity and quality due to process variability and poor performance of their control loops. Users are often unable to properly maintain each of the hundreds of control loops and instruments in their facilities. DeltaV InSight allows users to improve process control by monitoring control performance; identifying and diagnosing problem loops; recommending tuning and maintenance improvements; and continuously adapting to changing process conditions. The new software automatically learns users’ processes with embedded learning algorithms running at the controller level and develops process models based on day-to-day operations. These models allow users to identify operational benchmarks, diagnose problems and calculate optimum loop tuning across the entire control system. The application highlights poorly performing loops automatically, permitting users’ attention to be focused just where needed.

A single user interface provides seamless transition between loop diagnostics and tuning. DeltaV InSight is an embedded application and requires no separate installation, integration or configuration. The InSight application automatically recognizes all of the input, output and control blocks in the system and automatically recognizes new blocks as they are added.
