Achieve Energy Optimization,
Keep Costs Down Site-Wide.
Aspen Utilities Planner to create an integrated energy
optimization and management system, improve site energy decision-making, and
optimize process utilities.
library of models in AspenTech’s Process Utility Software, Aspen Utilities
Planner, has been specially developed for utility consuming systems to achieve
energy optimization. With process utility software, equipment blocks and
process streams can be visually placed to provide utility diagrams. Quickly
reconfigure and estimate different scenarios compared to the preliminary
utilities equipment layout to optimize process utilities.
Process Utility Software, achieves energy optimization by calculating a
utilities forecast based on actual and future production demand while
considering penalties, peak demand charges, and load factor contract clauses to
best achieve energy optimization of a process. With process utility software
users can optimize process utilities while accounting for operational,
economic, and environmental constraints.
Process Utility Software features a loadable add-in enabling the user to work
in concert with Microsoft Excel to simulate, reconcile, and optimize process
utilities in a flowsheet. The add-in provides a spreadsheet environment
through which model execution results can be imported and interpolated to
achieve energy optimization resulting in the ability to optimize process
Online Optimizer feature connects a model to a real-time data historian and
uses collected operating data to construct an enhanced 24/7 operation model.
The results can be displayed in any plant information system to provide
plant operators real-time guidance on how to optimize process utilities
operation with lowest utility cost.
training aimed to optimize process utilities with Aspen Utilities Planner
includes 18 tutorials and example files to get started operating the program
and the Microsoft Excel add-in. Topics include modeling, reconciliation, and
energy optimization of processes.
Utilities Planner can be used in conjunction with many other products in the
aspenONE family, such as Aspen HYSYS, AspenPlus, Aspen PIMS, and more using the
Microsoft Excel interface. The integration between these products facilitates
data exchange with Aspen Utilities Planner to achieve energy optimization and
expedite the model development and data collection processes.
Model reports can be generated automatically in both HTML and
Excel format, and then printed for review. This feature enables users to
quickly verify the key model inputs and outputs, as well as the high level
utilities balances of the overall sites. Users can quickly customize the Excel
reports into the desirable format based on the generated Excel solutions.
Overall reporting functions in Aspen Utilities Planner significantly improve
engineering productivity, particularly with EPC users.
