What other uses could SmartCEMS® PEMS be applied to? Can the system be used to model turbine combustion efficiency? Can the system be used to provide input for scheduling of maintenance activity?

The model was developed for the purpose of providing operators with real- time feedback as to actual pollutant emission rates, unit efficiency, combustion efficiency, and compliance status. The rate in change of unit efficiency normalized for ambient and   other operating conditions can be used to determine when maintenance should be scheduled, and following completion of maintenance activities, if the unit was restored to optimal combustion efficiency.


Yes, SmartCEMS® PEMS provides more than just efficient and cost-effective compliance emissions monitoring. The statistical hybrid engine can be used for plant and combustion process optimization and for tracking noncompliance emissions for waste minimization purposes or for process monitoring in applications where continuous monitoring with gas analyzers is extremely difficult or expensive to maintain.
