New release of advanced process control software solution increases energy efficiency and productivity in the cement and minerals industries.

ABB, a leading power and automation technology group, has released cpmPlus Expert Optimizer 7.0, a new version of its proven 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. To profitably run a cement or minerals plant, the operators have to take complex decisions in real time to meet business targets and process constraints. Every decision made has an immediate effect on the whole production process. Thus it is essential to monitor the processes continuously and consider all data before making a decision.

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.

cpmPlus Expert Optimizer 7.0 provides the following new 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

• Support of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit version

"The current Expert Optimizer release with new user-friendly features supports and enhances the customer‚s ability to develop and maintain applications on his own," said Michael Stalder, Product Manager for cpmPlus Expert Optimizer, ABB. "And our customers can rely on our long-lasting experience: With a track record of over 500 process control projects ABB ensures cement and minerals customers fast and reliable process execution."
