OSIsoft Users Conference 2013

Electric Power Generation: Coordination of Diverse Assets to Address a Changing Environment

The 2013 Power Generation Session combines Renewable Energy with Fossil Fueled and Nuclear Power Generation.

Globally, all types of generation assets now work together more effectively than ever to ensure affordable, available and reliable electricity. Generators face multiple challenges from tighter power reserve margins, a dynamic regulatory environment, plant retirements and life extensions—all while needing improved plant flexibility and reliability at the lowest possible cost.

Many companies address these challenges by leveraging OSIsoft’s PI System for Proactive / Condition-based Maintenance; Fleet Management; Operations Excellence; Performance and Efficiency Improvements; and Security.

This session’s topics will demonstrate how companies address these challenges by leveraging The PI System to drive:

  • Condition based maintenance
  • Fleet management
  • Operations excellence
  • Performance and efficiency improvements
  • Security
  • A sustainable utility
