With the help of a dynamic plant simulation, you can train your operators in a risk-free environment how to control the plant in a safe, stable and more efficient manner and increase production and availability.
Highlights hidden performance capabilities
Effectively predicts plant reactions to changes in feed quality
Reduces start-up and shutdown times as well and other idle periods
As plant operations are becoming increasingly complex, the expectations on operator skills continue to grow. To meet these expectations, well-trained operating personnel is a must for operating companies. Metso Outotec has developed an operator training simulator to be used for close-to-reality operator education. Our operator training simulators offer a high fidelity training in a close-to-reality, yet risk-free environment. Using the simulator, the operators are familiarized with the plant operation without effecting the running production process. Training is also possible prior plant commissioning, emulating the real plant operation already in the construction phase.
To ensure the most effective training possible, our training experience is as close to the real world plant as possible. This is achieved by:
A customized dynamic simulation covering all relevant physical phenomena of the customer’s process
A control logic implementation as in the real plant
A highly customizable user interface
The training simulator features various scenarios. Such scenarios can encompass both complex operations sequences, e.g. start-up and shutdown, or single events which require appropriate operator action steps. The operator will be well trained in case of infrequent events such as blower failure. By using Outotec training simulators, operators become well prepared for the most unexpected plant failure scenarios.
In order to reduce training times and condense training experience, you can accelerate plant simulation speed by as much as 60 times compared to real time.
The training simulator solution uses the proven ACT platform and VeX platforms.
