Focus on Simulation and Modeling Software

By Gerald Ondrey |

Track energy consumption with this new software This month, this company is releasing Energy Performance Analytics (EP-Analytics; photo), a software tool that uses energy performance indicators (EnPI) to track how energy is being consumed in a plant, identifies gaps between EnPI targets and actual performance, and helps to identify countermeasures to improve energy performance. The EP-Analytics software is powered by the Visual MESA energy management and optimization solution. The EP-Analytics software runs on a workstation that is connected via an OPC interface to the control system, giving it access to pressure, temperature, flowrate and other plant data. Based on the Visual MESA simulation engine, the EP-Analytics software uses rigorous first-principle models to track energy flows throughout the plant and calculate the energy performance for each individual process unit and piece of equipment. — Yokogawa Corp. of America, Sugar Land, Tex. www.us.yokogawa.com   Model-based support for process design The gPROMS ProcessBuilder (photo) is an advanced process-simulation tool aimed at model-based support of key design and operating decisions for organizations in the chemicals and petrochemicals sectors. It combines ease of…
