Power generation companies face the dual pressures of managing legacy assets while offsetting emissions by creating power from large-scale clean energy sources such as wind and solar. BCT understands that power generating companies should not only maintain and optimize the performance of aging infrastructure, but need to maintain and operate new technologies in the most efficient and productive way.
Power Transmission & Distribution
Power transmission companies need to continually monitor transmission congestion, fuel costs, generator availability and load growth and their impact on market prices in order to minimize risks and provide reliable services. At the same time, they need to manage construction, maintenance, and emergency work on a daily basis to ensure the 24x7 availability of mission-critical assets. To address these varied critical challenges, power transmission companies are making investments in innovative technologies that balance day-to-day operations while providing the thrust towards innovation.
In the area of Power distribution, there is a critical need for distribution assets to be fully operational and performing optimally, since even a single failure can cause service disruptions that cost millions of dollars in downtime as well as significant inconvenience for customers. While power distribution companies contend with the pressures to invest in new infrastructure to support renewable energy resources, they must also extend the life of existing assets. It is important to have a clear view of all assets to ensure uptime of power distribution networks. To balance these pressures, power distribution companies are investing in smart grid technologies to improve overall network reliability and energy efficiency.

With a thorough understanding of the industry challenges, BCT offers innovative solutions for Power companies that help address the challenges –while improving the efficiency of operations, achieve the maximum out of existing assets and reduce the risk of breakdowns.
BCT offers a wide range of cutting edge high-end technology solutions and services for Power generation, transmission and distribution. BCT IP based solution Cuecent Retina offers advanced Engineering and Technology solutions in the area of Operations Management, Asset Management and Operations & Maintenance Intelligence.
RETINA is a real-time Predictive Analytics platform that enables integration of real-time and historical information sources while drilling, analyses the information, diagnoses the issues and provides smart and predictive information that enables management to take timely, well-informed and accurate decisions relating to drilling activities.
RETINA provides real-time root cause and predictive capability for the plant maintenance & operations team to make decisions and save costs.
RETINA is a patent pending product that has the capability to integrate a variety of data sources and bring data into one common platform. It has the provision to rapidly build complex rules embedding Artificial Intelligence algorithms to enable high-end decision support with dynamic KPI computation and visualization for complex analytics.
Abnormal operating conditions cost power generation companies billions of dollars each year and can be prevented if they are predicted and controlled in advance. Cuecent Retina helps engineers in monitoring, detecting and diagnosing abnormal conditions and provides safe guards against these unexpected process conditions. Abnormal operating conditions can be modeled and predicted with a high level of accuracy. To address the increased complexity and possible instability in the operating conditions, Cuecent Retina has the ability to provide practical assistance to operators, maintenance crew and engineers.
In a typical power plant, DCS or Historian provides performance calculations of Boiler, Turbine, Heaters, Condenser, Gasifier and the Performance Calculation System provides efficiency and Heat Rate calculations. Cuecent Retina works in conjuction with DCS, Historian & Performance Calculation System, root cause identification and predictive feature to forecast possible failures or abnormal states
Cuecent RETINA Asset Fitness Center solutions for Power generation companies minimize whole life cost of operations and maintenance. The solution consists of four components –Performance Indicators, Condition Monitoring, Root cause Analysis and Active Truth Table to provide 360 ° view of the equipment make better informed decisions.
Cuecent RETINA helps to take decisions in real-time thereby improving the performance and profitability of operations & maintenance unifies data from disparate sources that exist in silos, collates, comprehends and analyses the data, and convert them into actionable information in real time.
Cuecent Retina provides data processing and modeling toolkits as well as heuristic modeling toolkits – all of them can be used dynamically and work in real-time to help in real- -time decision support.
