Steam System Optimization (SSO)

Description

For understanding and evaluating any industrial utility system, the key to cost-effectiveness is to take a “Systems Approach”. For a Systems Approach, the user needs to consider the whole steam system rather than investigate just a single component. The general approach for a steam system optimization starts with the establishment of current system conditions and operating parameters followed by an understanding of both the supply and demand sides of the system. The potential areas (projects) for steam system optimization are then identified, analyzed and implemented to meet both the plant operational and financial constraints. As a final step, the overall system performance is continuously monitored and trended to ensure that as process needs change the system does remain in its optimal configuration. Steam System Optimization approach are: Establish current system conditions, operating parameters, and system energy use Investigate how the total system presently operates Identify potential areas where system operation can be improved Analyze the impacts of potential improvements to the plant system Implement system improvements that meet plant operational and financial criteria Continue to monitor overall system performance
