Software tools: PlantTriage adds graphical modeling

Drag-and-drop functions simplify matching model and actual process behavior.
By Control Engineering Staff March 5, 2008

PlantTriage’s new visual modeling tools result in better dynamic process models to give better all-around analysis resulting in optimal PID tuning, accurate simulated response to upsets, and accurate response to process noise.

ExperTune says the new drag-and-drop modeling puts the engineer in control of the model fit.

This drag-and-drop modeling is fully compatible with PlantTriage’s active model capture tool. Using active model capture, operator setpoint moves are automatically captured and modeled.

John Gerry, president of ExperTune says, “The end results of these visual modeling tools are optimal plant operations. This ultimately, boosts efficiency and production while reducing waste and energy usage.”
