Process Control Software

ABB released cpmPlus Expert Optimizer 7.0, a new version of its software for deployment of advanced process control applications to increase energy efficiency and productivity in the cement and minerals industries. cpmPlus Expert Optimizer helps customers meet production, operational and quality objectives.

The software operates cement and minerals plants more stably and efficiently by coordinating actions on the process such as rotational speed, fuels or chemical additives. It maximizes overall plant efficiency by looking at the interactions between variables and makes decisions according to the plant goals. It collects real-time data, processes it with mathematical algorithms, and coordinates the plant actuators for optimal performance.

The newest version provides the following features: non-linear model predictive control leading to better performance and lower application complexity; new tools for engineering efficiency including the ability to create user-defined libraries; better access rights control up to single strategy components for better protection of intellectual property; and support of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit version.
