Title: PERFORMANCE PARAMETERIZATION OF PROCESS EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEMS
Abstract:
Performance mapping of equipment performance parameters by capturing, mapping, and/or structuralizing equipment performance data of a device for installation in a system. This includes generating performance maps which outline the expected feature performance parameter behavior of the equipment based on a set of operating parameters that capture the operating conditions. Each performance parameter on the map is representative of an operating point of specific operating conditions taken at a particular point in time. In one example, a performance parameter can be defined by an individualized set of parameter coefficients which in turn are dependent on instantaneous operating conditions. With the performance maps determined individually for devices as part of the system, and stored along with a time of testing, activities such as continuous commissioning, monitoring and verification, preventative maintenance, fault detection and diagnostics, as well as energy performance benchmarking and long term monitoring can be performed.
