What can you do?

TecOS START is the TecOS Suite's solution that allows for optimization of the start-up process of power plants that have frequent starts and stops, reducing the process costs and, thus, improving the facility's financial performance.
By applying machine learning algorithms, TecOS START yields precise estimates of start-up time, consumption of gas and auxiliaries, and energy generation throughout the entire start-up process.

Find out the start-up time required for your power plant based upon its initial conditions for improving your tasks planification, thus reducing fuel consumption and avoiding penalties.

The analysis of the data generated through TecOS START allows users to study the start-up process and detect the different actions that can be taken to improve and optimize said process.

The application of machine learning algorithms to your process provides accurate estimates of the amount of time required for the process. TecOS START adapts based upon your plant's historical data, allowing for estimates to be improved and tailored.

Supervise the critical parameters that come into play during plant start-up and receive alerts if they undergo significant deviations. All of this information is provided to staff by means of high-performance displays that have been designed with the highest human factors engineering standards in mind.
