Plant operators need to train for their work. Similar to the case with pilots and aircrafts, using the actual plant or plant unit as a training tool, is highly costly and dangerous.
Providing a cost effective, safe, and efficient solution, we custom build high-fidelity, real-time simulators to match the dynamic behavior of single or multiple plant units and their associated control and emergency shutdown systems. These are computer and model-enabled systems used to provide plant or unit operators with realistic operation environment to effectively learn how to operate the target process on which a unit runs.
An Operator Training System may be used throughout the plant lifecycle to train operating crews, resulting in fewer operating errors and quicker and safer startups and shutdowns, improve plant reliability due to improved response to abnormal situations, optimize throughput and product quality, and provide the basis for evaluation of control strategies.
Benefits of Operator Training Simulators
Dynamic simulation helps process and power generation companies significantly improve overall plant efficiency and bottom line performance and provide the ideal basis for efficient, risk-free operator training and operations improvement. During the past several years, dynamic simulation has been recognized as a key enabling technology in the Process Industries.
Operational Skill is a Competitive Advantage
- Faster start-up
- Effective response to Abnormal situations
- Operations team constancy of performance
- Reduced losses and higher levels of production sooner
Operator Training Simulators is an effective way to develop and sustain operations skills
- Unique safe environment for “hands on” training
- Reproducible training sessions
- Measurable performance
Added Value from engineering benefits
- Validation of design and configuration (ie DCS check out) before startup
- Operational procedure improvements
- What if analysis
