Emerson’s James Beall presented Novel Techniques to Improve Polymer Reactor Tuning at AIChE virtual conference based on a project he worked on. Reactor control is complex with many interactions between control loops. The way to tackle this challenge is to start by identifying the process dynamics and create a realistic process simulation to identify improvements in the control strategy to address the complexities.
Ovation Digital Twin Technology
At the Emerson Exchange Americas Virtual Series, Emerson’s Shen Zhang and James Thompson shared an update on Ovation Digital Twin technology.
Advancing Digital Twin Technology
Digital twins provide a simulation of the manufacturing or production process as well as the automation systems which control it. Depending on the level of fidelity of the process models, this digital twin can have many uses. I caught up with Emerson's Zuwei Jin who...
Dynamic Simulations Create Value across Lifecycle
Simulations can add value across the lifecycle of a manufacturing or production process—from the upfront design work for the capital project portion of the lifecycle to the ongoing operations and maintenance. In a Processing magazine article, Using Life Cycle Dynamic...
Planning and Executing Digital Twin Technology
You may have heard the phrase "Digital Twin" bandied about in our world of automation. It may conjure up mental images of models, simulations, training systems, and more. In an Institution of Civil Engineers article, Defining the digital twin: 7 essential steps,...
Integrated Simulation for Power Generation Digital Transformation
We hear the phrase "Digital Transformation" bandied about across the manufacturing industries. For each segment it can mean something different. At this past December's Power-Gen conference, president of Emerson's Power & Water Solutions business' Bob Yeager gave...
Digital Twin for Digital Transformation
Digitalization has brought a wealth of streams of data. Data by itself does nothing to improve performance but channeling this flow into analytical tools and revised work processes is a basis for undergoing a digital transformation. A new white paper, Emerson Digital...
Dynamic Simulations for Projects, Training and Ongoing Operations
Learning in a simulated environment can improve both the capital project side and ongoing operations side of a manufacturing process. In an Arab News article, Faster start-up, Emerson's Ronnie Bains: …explains how the use of dynamic simulations and operator training...
Embedded Simulation for Training and Engineering
At the 2018 Ovation Users' Group Conference, Emerson's James Thompson and Sheldon Willis provided an update on embedded simulation in the Ovation distributed control system. Ovation-based high-fidelity simulator models are embedded directly into virtual Ovation...
Dynamic Simulation for Successful Modernization Project
Switching from a legacy control system to a modern one requires careful planning and execution, especially if done as a hot cutover--the switch happening while the process continues to run. One element that must be carefully planned should be the training of the...
Digital Transformations for Manufacturers across the Globe
Interest in how the Industrial Internet of Things can improve manufacturing performance spans the globe. Emerson’s Jonas Berge recently presented at the 2nd China Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) summit 2018 in Shanghai.
Digital Twin for Increased Project and Operational Performance
You may have been seeing the phrase "Digital Twin" more and more in the automation and industry press. Wikipedia defines the Digital twin concept as: …a digital replica of physical assets, processes and systems that can be used for various purposes. The digital...
