Using Soft Sensors to Monitor Critical Process Measurements
Maximise asset performance, minimise asset costs
What can Soft Sensors do for you?
Soft Sensors are software-based models that calculate/predict parameters that cannot be measured directly, or provide expected outputs for process measurements that are important to keep an eye on.
UReason uses Soft Sensors quite often in applications and solutions that are co-developed with our customers. In this webinar we would like to share our knowledge on using Soft Sensors successfully.
In the first 30 minutes, we discuss:
- What Soft Sensors are;
- How you can use your existing historical data to create Soft Sensors; and
- How Soft Sensors are used to monitor your critical processes and assets.
The webinar session is followed by a 20-minute Q&A session.
We use APM-Studio’s functionality to run Soft Sensors for critical process parameters. This way we have an extra set of ‘sensors’ on-line that inform us early of sensor drift and malfunction. It was really easy setting up and deploying the Soft Sensor models in APM-Studio and replicating this across multiple sites.
