Introduction
Energy Management
• Generally static
• Based on historical data
Control Systems
• Real time control of processes
• Processes track to a collection of set points
• Run the process within certain limits
Systems Optimisation
• Use real time data
• Adjust system wide set points to optimise profits
• Take into account external factors
• Whole of system focus – optimise across whole
system not just individual process
Increasing complexity
Increasing control
Greater efficiency

What is System Optimisation?
Optimiser uses historical data and
predictive algorithms to optimise
performance
Information sent back to process via
control system
Controller provides process information
to optimiser
Optimised instructions sent back to
process
Information from process sent to control
system
Optimised instructions sent back to
process
