Frequently Asked Questions

What are the capabilities and benefits of Turbomachinery Advisor?

First, Turbomachinery Advisor helps solve challenges that are often unaddressed or manually done in asset performance management practices by going beyond common equipment modeling monitoring.

The solution improves the response time and quality of post-critical event analysis by seamlessly combining high resolution event data (100+ millisecond) with machinery data and accelerating root-cause analysis with powerful visualization capabilities, self-guided diagnostics tools, and pre-annotated compressor maps highlighting key moments reducing the time and missed insights from traditional analysis methods.

Second, Turbomachinery Advisor automates the monitoring of excess recycle flow through anti-surge valves. The tool will provide real-time visibility by flagging compressors operating in excess recycle, calculating equivalent excess emissions, identifying savings opportunities, and providing recommendations for more efficient operation.

Additionally, Turbomachinery Advisor adds performance control monitoring, providing engineers with new measures for control quality, trend visualization and analysis, and recommended corrective actions to improve compressor performance.

Our differentiators are:

  1. Embeds CCC IP
  2. Uniquely incorporates high-resolution event data and performance controller monitoring
  3. Pre-packages models and visualizations

Solution is delivered as a service and scalable across an enterprise

What additional benefits are gained from using Turbomachinery Advisor as opposed to other vendor health and performance compressor models?

Turbomachinery Advisor extends beyond the core capabilities of health and performance monitoring. These capabilities include critical event analysis, excess recycle monitoring, and performance controller monitoring. By incorporating high resolution process and machinery data and control analytics, reliability and maintenance engineers can have more comprehensive insights of how control performance and critical events impact the health and performance of individual compressors and complex trains. These insights can help engineers take additional actions to improve asset reliability and performance of compressors such as:

  • Implement control strategies and maximize compressor performance to sustain optimal performance and meet primary control objectives
  • Detect control, mechanical, or process issues before they result in unplanned downtime or machinery damage
  • Perform faster and more in-depth event investigations with high resolution process data combined with machinery data
  • Safely operate closer to the surge limit line while reducing energy use and emissions

What are the system requirements for transferring high-resolution critical event data into the Honeywell APM platforms?

Data from CCC controllers are continuously archived at 100+ milliseconds on CCC’s existing TrainTools HMI servers. The OPC Data Logger installed on the Train Tools server (newer than TTCR version 15.3) collects low-resolution data continuously and creates data files. High-resolution data files are generated by a patched version of Archive Exporter installed on the TrainTools Server. The high-resolution data files are exported only when a critical event occurs such as a surge or emergency shutdown. Both high and low-resolution data files are pushed to Honeywell APM platforms via file transfer protocols such as SFTP and SMB. The data files once received by the Honeywell APM platforms are parsed into Honeywell APM’s historian.

What are the differences between using CCC Connect for PI System and the Critical Event Analysis submodule in Turbomachinery Advisor?

Critical Event Analysis offers similar benefits for CCC Connect for PI System by leveraging adaptive resolution data transfer. The Critical Event Analysis submodule in Turbomachinery Advisor takes the benefits even further by providing a web-based tool with pre-configured compressor maps, trend charts, event playback features, pre-populated expert annotations and analysis, and comment logging and annotation tools that improves the collaboration for analyzing, historicizing, and reporting events.

In addition to the Critical Event Analysis submodule, Turbomachinery Advisor also includes additional capabilities of performance controller monitoring and excess recycle monitoring in a single platform.

If I’m interested in models for other asset types available on the Honeywell APM platform, is that possible?

Yes, Turbomachinery Advisor is just one of many asset models available in Honeywell APM solutions. Honeywell APM solutions has a pre-built asset model library for over 40+ asset types including instruments, electrical assets, process units, static assets, rotating assets, and mobile assets for a variety of industries. These asset models are updated based on Honeywell expertise, industry standards, and the latest AI/ML modeling technologies. These available out-of-the-box models reduce asset configuration time and enables repeatable results that are scalable across the enterprise.
