    Challenges

    When basic control solutions are simply not enough

    Complex energy and resource-intensive processes like mining require sophisticated control solutions that can maximize efficiency and optimize resource consumption (electricity and fuel), even in the most challenging conditions.

    • Solution

      Advanced Process Control (APC) is a software tool that collects information from the process and field devices (via supervisory, historian, and control systems) and then applies the right control strategy according to process requirements to determine optimized set points for the most efficient performance of the system. APC strategies are also able to work with constraints and resolve conflicting process objectives.
