Delivery Release: Control Performance Analytics (CPA)

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Control Performance Analytics collects and aggregates control loop data from PCS 7 Systems. The aggregated data is analyzed and specific KPIs are calculated, providing primarily transparency about the specific situation of the control loops. In addition those KPIs allow identification of certain improvement potentials.
CPA provides
  • Various performance KPIs and loop characteristics:
    Status of alarms, warnings and user inputs, Service factor, Oscillations, Steady state performance, Tracking performance
  • Stiction (static friction) detection
  • Control loop optimization

The information is provided via an online reporting system.

System requirements / Frame conditions

  • CPA works with all running PCS 7 installations in versions V7.1 SP2 to V9.0 all SP
  • PID controllers (Standard):  CTRL_PID
  • PID controllers (APL): PIDConR, PIDConS, PIDConL
  • PID controllers (SIPAPER APL and others): CtrlPP, CTRL_PP, TE_CTRL, PID_SC, PPIDStepL

  • Any other PCS 7 PID-controller modules on request and after evaluation
  • CPA data collector installed on PCS 7 OS master and standby server
  • For optimization additional data is required from ES

  • Data of Non-PCS 7 systems can be analyzed with reduced scope
