TecOS SOLCEP features

IDENTIFICATION AND MONETIZATION

  • Identifies, allocates and monetizes the plant's performance-based losses
  • Quantifies the performance losses of the plant in accordance to plant instrumentation and thermohydraulic balances, estimating any non-instrumented variables
  • Based on the ASME PTC guides and more than 60 years of experience

MONITORING SERVICES

  • Tool calculates for every parameter, component and system the deviation between the real and the objective value and quantifies this deviation in terms of production and cost
  • All information is provided to support users decision making on O&M strategies and to maximize the company's results
  • Tecnatom provides services to support the performance monitoring carried out by our operation, maintenance and performance experts from our monitoring centre

BENEFIT-BASED MAINTENANCE

  • TecOS SOLCEP and monitoring services are in line with the Benefit-based maintenance (BbM) concept
  • BbM let us know when a maintenance action that restores equipment efficiency, is beneficial from an economic perspective

What can you do?

TecOS SOLCEP enables many other operations to be carried out, in addition to online monitoring plant performance. These are made up mainly by:
- Assisted diagnostic
- What-if simulator

Assisted diagnostic: Helps the user to identify any anomaly in the plant components or systems. This module contains all the experience gained by Tecnatom over the last 60 years in power plant processes and operations, thermohydraulics and asset management

What-if simulator: Is a stationary state simulator that helps to optimise plant operation. Operator, based on a set energy or fuel, is able to carry out various manoeuvres to obtain more power from fuel, or to use less fuel but supplying the same power

All the module interfaces follow the outset of TecOS SUPERVISE, a smart interface based on human factors engineering, with the aim of improving user performance and supporting decision-making

How does it work?

TecOS SOLCEP is the TecOS solution that will improve the Performance and Optimize the operation of the plant while saving money. It can be deployed on cloud or on-premise

TecOS SOLCEP Smart Interface

TecOS SOLCEP interface is based on another TecOS solution: TecOS SUPERVISE

This high level interface aims to help the users to improve their performance through pattern recognition and the smart integration of information

TecOS SOLCEP modules

Assisted diagnostic allows the operator to identify the malfunction or degradation that is taken place in plant

When faced with a malfunction or degradation, "diagnostic" column will show the possible causes while "verification" column will show the actions that need to be taken by the operator to limit the problem, with the overall aim of producing a quick and clear diagnostic

What-if module is a stationary simulator with the objective of optimising the plant objectives. User must select the data entry for What-if: current or historical, design data.
Then, operator may carry out different manoeuvres in order to increase production with the same fuel or use less fuel to obtain same power level

Some of these manoeuvres are:
- Modifying fuel composition or environmental conditions
- Using degradated components
- Modifying control setpoints

Asisted Diagnostic What-if

FAQs

No, the TecOS SOLCEP modules can be acquired independently.

Performance monitoring of the plant and its equipment, the identification and quantification of deviation causes, and recommendations to counteract them.
Status monitoring and coherence of the instrumentation values.
Decision-making support for the optimisation of the operation.
Decision-making support for maintenance and/or equipment replacement work.

The TecOS SOLCEP deployment requires a software server that is connected to the plant’s Data Server. The data can then be transferred to our monitoring centre through a secure VPN connection, where all the plants’ performances are monitored.
If the user does not require monitoring services, there is no need for a VPN.

Yes, tool models are adapted to plant technology, processes and current instrumentation

Yes, specific training is given to the users and system administrators.

Yes, from anywhere and with any of the company’s intranet devices, as well as from any location that has a secure fixed/mobile router internet access connection.

From simulation to the digital twin, the keys to a good journey towards intelligence

The digital twin is a virtual replica of an asset or process that, by combining design information, process data and simulation capabilities, allows us to optimize the operation throughout its life. What steps must be followed to build a digital twin? Physical processes or assets that can undertake this journey to intelligence are very diverse […]
