    Local and wide area computer networks have provided the means for utility SCADA and SCADA/energy management systems to distribute functions over many interconnected processors. This has enabled users to avoid obstacles historically encountered when expanding capabilities in local control systems and when maintaining geographically dispersed data bases at remote control centers. These features also... View full abstract»

    In the paper making process the greatest consumption of energy occurs during drying of the continuous wet web by evaporation. To facilitate humid air removal the entire drying section is enclosed with an insulated hood from which air is continuously removed by a series of exhaust fans. To improve energy efficiency a control system senses fans. To improve energy efficiency a control system senses e... View full abstract»

    An online self-tuning strategy for the temperature control of a test-cell is presented and is compared with the traditional PID technique used in building services systems control. The superiority of the advanced technique is demonstrated, and a full-scale testing of the technique is now warranted to more accurately assess its true potential. However, such practical implementations require good qu... View full abstract»

    The author presents a major project initiated by Blue Circle to consider the problems of the control and optimisation of cement kilns. It is found that rule based control can be used successfully to optimise the production of cement klinker. Significant savings can be achieved by better control and optimisation of kilns View full abstract»

    In 1989 UK Papers' New Thames Mill set up a scheme to investigate and subsequently reduce their energy consumption. Following an initial investigation into energy management techniques, it was decided that the existing SCADA should be used for data analysis, with a communications link to a personal computer where the more complex mathematics could be performed View full abstract»

    The energy management system (EMS) is the centre of the control system for a power system. EMS extends the scope of the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems by the provision of power application software to assist the operator in report monitoring and control of the electrical network. With the emergence of high powered personal computers, EMS functions have moved to PC bases View full abstract»

    For many years system control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems have been available for process plant, but these systems have tended to be too expensive for use on small and medium sized industrial furnaces such as those employed in the pottery, ceramics and heat treatment industries. The authors describes a kiln and furnace control and monitoring system that is low cost, modular and can be ins... View full abstract»
