Technical Talk on Advanced Process Control and Energy Efficiency

Advanced Control Implementation on Distillation Columns for Energy Saving

Yokogawa Advanced Process Control (APC) is a multivariable predictive control solution that has been jointly developed by Shell Global Solution and Yokogawa. Yokogawa Singapore has implemented more than 705 APC applications in refinery, petrochemical, chemical and utility plants. Yokogawa helped customers to achieve significant benefit from process stabilization, energy saving (steam, F/G, F/O), production yield increment and quality improvement. The key features of Yokogawa APC solution includes:

•      Nonlinear control capability

•      Cross-Unit optimization 

•      Real-time optimization

•      Scalable implementation

Profile of the Speaker

Dr Wang Cheng

Business Development Manager - Consulting

Yokogawa Engineering Asia

Dr Wang Cheng is an industry automation professional, experienced Principal Engineer in process automation, advanced process control and data analytics, proficient with simulation, energy management and supply chain management business. Armed with over 27 years global working experience in SEA, Europe and Northeast Asia, Dr Wang believes trust partnership with clients is the essential factor that leads to the success in digital age.

Application of Digital Twins for Improved Monitoring and Control of Advanced Process Control & Energy Monitoring System for Equipment Efficiency Improvements

Performance monitoring of APC applications is an important foundation that ensures the delivered benefits of APC are visible at all levels of the organization.  Tangible APC benefits usually coming from 3 aspects; namely throughput increment, yield improvement, and energy consumption reduction.  Since APC system is directly related to energy consumption and equipment efficiency, we need a tool that enables collaboration across operations, process engineering, APC teams and management to understand what is limiting APC from driving the unit to its best potential as well as provides expert guidance to maintain performance.   As industry moving to IIOT 4.0 direction, a single cloud based application of digital twin for monitoring the APC, energy monitoring, and equipment efficiency are something industry is looking forward.

Profile of the Speaker

Mr Hans Tan

SEA Business Consulting Leader

Honeywell Advanced Solutions

Mr Hans is currently the Honeywell SEA Advanced Solutions (AS) Business Consulting Leader. He is responsible to plan, strategize and grow the Honeywell Connected Plant (HCP) business in SEA & Taiwan.

Prior joining Honeywell, Hans was the Principal Business Consultant for SEA simulation business in Invensys. His primary responsibility is to strategize and lead the growth of simulation and optimization business of SimSci in SEA.

Mr Hans graduated with a B.S. (Chemical Engineering) from Louisiana State University, USA. He has 1 8 years of experience in hydrocarbon industry with specialization in process control consultation, steady state and dynamic process simulation, advanced process control (APC) and real time energy management & optimization throughout the world.

Hans started his career in General Electric at Baton Rouge, USA as an Application / APC Engineer which experience delivered numbers of project across USA and Europe. He then returned to SEA in year 2003 and started working in Yokogawa Singapore (YEA) as APAC business development cum project management role on both APC and operator training simulator (OTS) solutions.

Mr Hans joined Shell Global Solutions as Process Control Consultant in Jan 2007. Throughout his 4 years tenure in Shell, he successfully tuned more than 5000 loops on various Shell plants (SRCPD, Seraya, & Bukom) across the SEA region. He also worked with Shell Europe’s team to develop and commissioned the 1 st APC controller in Turkey Izmit Refinery. A total of 3 APC controllers were commissioned on crude distillation unit (CDU), fluidized catalytic cracking unit (FCCU), and hydro cracking unit (HCU). Another major achievement of Hans in this tenure in Shell was lead and successfully deployed the Shell controller monitoring & diagnosis tool across all Shell’s downstream plant in APAC which is instrumental for benchmarking, safety and energy reliability improvement.
