IICA ADELAIDE Tech Night with Greenfern Dynamics

Greenfern - Advanced Process Control

Greenfern Dynamics will present a range of cases studies to show how Advanced Process Control can be applied to the processing industries to improve Energy Efficiency.
The presentation starts with an overview of APC and how it fits into the current Digitalisation theme that is transforming industry.

A range of case studies are briefly described including:

  • Online Optimisation of a Hot Oil Utility system that delivered an energy saving of ~ 10%
  • Automated Optimisation of an Integrated Steam and Electricity Generation system that reduced operator intervention by 75%
  • Examples of Gas Turbine Fleet Optimisation including a power generation example that delivered a payback of < 3 months
  • An example of how some advanced loop tuning techniques has helped a Pumped Hydro operator more effectively capture market opportunities.


Meet our Speaker – Andrew Taylor
