Overview

Managing the Digitally Integrated Power Plant examines how digital technologies are redefining workflows and business processes by allowing plant and fleet operators to exchange high quality data, information and analytics throughout power generation assets. Enhanced data quality and applied analytics enable more efficient maintenance, while instant communication results in safer and more reliable operations. This evolution is a constant process, requiring a significantly increased collaboration between operational technology, information technology, and analytics.

The digital technology used to operate industrial control systems and regulate the mechanical equipment within power generation assets unlocks enterprise value by increasing plant efficiency while creating unique challenges. In order to maximize the capabilities of new digital monitoring systems, information and operational technology professionals must coordinate equipment and applications that use divergent digital platforms and communication protocols. The speed with which digital technologies evolve also creates a challenge when integrating systems into a power plant which upgrades at a much slower rate.

Managing the Digitally Integrated Power Plant will address how plant operators can maximize the efficiency of their plant operations while integrating disparate digital applications that work both with each other and adhere to cyber security standards.

Key Takeaways Include

  • Sustaining Economic Competitiveness During a Time of Technological Disruption
  • Efficiency Improvements Due to Digital Upgrades
  • Handling Obsolescence with Hardware and Software – Maintaining a Reasonable Upgrade Schedule
  • Digital Protection in Older and Modern Power Plants
  • Developing a Completely Automated Cycle Isolation Program
  • Implementing Cyber Security so it Enables Rather than Hinders New Technologies
