Efficiency, Yield and Energy Consumption are among the main Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) used to assess the economic performance of the chemical processing industry such as Oil Refining, Fossil Power Generation, Pulp and Paper, Mining Industry.

KPIs do not improve by themselves, actions need to be taken.  Process control is a well proven technology capable of providing outstanding tangible Return On Investment.
Process Control is the answer to the "HOW'S" of the "WHAT'S" identified by the data mining.

Here are the links to the latest publications:

A series of "Control Talk" done jointly with Control Magazine:
First..."Giving Thanks for Process Control Achievements" It's about my journey in Process Control
Second..."Distilled Analysis of Interaction" It's about Relative Gain, Interaction and Distillation
Third... "How to Get the Most Out of Your PID by better Tuning" It's about my stand on tuning PID controllers
Fourth..."Invisibility of Process Control" The title is self-explanatory

As for where have we been lately ?

In the latest project we were thoroughly involved in the commissioning and redesign of control strategies associated to the expansion of a 165000 bpd oil refinery, among them: Fired Heaters, Gas Compressors, Hydrogen Reformers, Catalytic Distillation, Fractionators, Heat Recovery Steam Generators, Alky Plant, Sour Water Plant, FCCU, Saturated Gas Plant, Steam Distribution System, and Gasoline Blending

We were invited to present at the AIChE Spring 2017 Topical Conference - Kister Distillation Symposium:
"Distillation Control - Still An Issue" is the title of the paper.  
For those interested let us know by sending an email to SNino or to the Info email address
