Powerful Real-Time Integration and Analytics

Today, the top questions on the mind of every ‘C’ level executive in Manufacturing or E&U organizations are how can one reduce variability in their production process, enhance asset life, predict failures earlier, prevent unplanned maintenance, understand in-depth root causes of failure at multiple levels pinning to the lowest asset element, achieve optimal production efficiency, ensure supply chain is leveraged to the best limits and achieving all of the above in a cumulative fashion?

Business intelligence, analytics and real-time data from operations are leveraged for making critical operational and strategic decisions. Analysis of multiple kinds of data for meaningful insights using mathematical, statistical, descriptive and predictive techniques leads to actionable intelligence when synchronized with real-time events, thereby leading to immense possibilities of creating compelling business solutions.

Predictive analytics combines data modelling with statistical and artificial intelligence techniques like fuzzy logic / neural network, to discover complex patterns and relationships in data which allows it to predict future behaviour or activities.

RETINA – A real-time integration and analytics platform

RETINA is an integration and analytics platform that collects, validates, processes data from multiple plant data sources and allows multi parameter predictive modelling using statistical methods, AI techniques, evolutionary algorithms and constraint optimization tools.

They key business objective of RETINA is to provide real-time insights for actionable intelligence for CXO’s, Operations Head / Plant Head, Supervisors and Managers. The key areas of application of RETINA are

  • Process events to unearth plant-related abnormalities
  • Plant performance and efficiency improvement across plant production, quality control, reduction of specific power and energy consumption, improve plant stability
  • Event monitoring and alerting
  • Plant alarm root cause analysis, diagnostics and forewarning
  • Remote monitoring and visualization of disparate systems in a control tower
  • Energy efficiency, emission monitoring & environmental processing - HSE analysis
  • Asset analytics
  • Equipment utilization and operating efficiency improvement
  • Equipment condition monitoring
  • Risk reduced Predictive maintenance
  • Equipment Fault tree analysis

Today most of the asset-intensive organizations such as Oil & Gas, Energy & Utilities, Supply Chain and the manufacturing sector are either evaluating or have implemented systems that could monitor, maintain and optimize assets to provide them with better asset utilization and asset performance along with predictable behaviour to cut down on unplanned maintenance costs.

RETINA is available in distinct flavours to address the specific needs of verticals such as Power- Generation, Transmission & Distribution, Oil & Gas, and Wind.

RETINA for Power


Wind - Turbine Operations Monitoring System (TOMS)

TOMS is an equipment-agnostic and intelligent operations monitoring and analytics system designed for Wind Turbine operations. It integrates with SCADA systems and sensor data from turbines and wind parks in real-time and provides an integrated view of the operations. Combining the vibration analysis with levels of operating parameters, TOMS enables real-time root-cause analysis of turbine asset performance.

TOMS integrates with metrological data sources, OEM specifications, and provides a real-time Power Curve Analysis (efficiency of Power Generation of Wind Turbines) that continuously evolves using powerful neural network models. This feature also provides insights into power generation loss, reasons for differentiated power generation levels, the role of weather, pitch, yaw, vibration of rotating components, lubrication, etc., in the power generation cycle.

TOMS tracks the downtime of turbines with reason codes and enables Pareto analysis of turbines within and in-between wind parks and regions. It ensures compliance in terms of reporting while integrating with grids and substations.

Reduces downtime of turbines; in turn leading to improved production Improves production efficiency; in proportion to maintenance costs reduction Optimizes site and turbine specific performance Provides unplanned risk modeling; for better anticipation of O&M costs and availability

Heat Rate Degradation Advisor

Heat Rate Degradation Advisor is a powerful analytical solution that calculates thermodynamic-based equipment performance to provide deviation from design diagnostics on critical machinery, including turbines, compressors, boilers, and other production assets. The primary goal of this solution is to enable utility users to increase equipment reliability leading to enhanced plant availability. The solution tracks and identifies spikes in energy usage and reduction in throughput causing deterioration to your critical equipment performance, and plugs these faults in a proactive manner to increase the plant’s profitability.

PADO (Performance Analysis, Diagnostics, and Optimization)

PADO, with its powerful decision support system, improves the heat rate of coal, combined cycle and gas-fired power plants. It captures information from the plant’s control system to analyze, diagnose and optimize plant performance. PADO optimizes the plant performance by identifying and controlling critical parameters that cause efficiency deviations. It presents real-time and historical performance information to the entire power generating enterprise in a concise and timely manner. This guides the improvement of unit heat rate and root cause analysis of performance deficiencies in the plant.

Intelligent Alarm Analysis

The modern plant floor is spanned with many critical operating machines that operate continuously 24 x 7 x 365 performing specific tasks. Whenever abnormalities are noticed during the implementation of a particular process, it has to be reported to the floor operator instantly. This is a typical situation where intelligent monitoring systems come into play. They assist in identifying problems and alert human operators to make accurate decisions.

Intelligent Alarm Analysis provides ‘Process Alarms’ based on a combination of the following parameter deviations:

  • Increasing / decreasing trends
  • Critical conditions
  • Safety and hazard situations

Besides, it is capable of monitoring real-time plant data against user-defined data (collected field / visual inspection) and provides Alarm Analysis.
