OSIsoft Hands-On Tech Workshops are coming to Calgary!

OSIsoft is pleased to offer a FREE Tech Workshops to existing PI System Users, designed to accelerate your success with the PI System. 

 

Our workshops are designed to showcase the latest tools and technologies to help you optimize your use of the PI System. See how to efficiently build displays in PI Vision, receive tips for deploying Asset Framework or enable your Machine Learning, IoT or Data Science initiatives with the PI System and supporting technology.  Workshops are run by experienced OSIsoft engineers, who can share their expertise, while sharing practical hands-on access to our Learning Environments in a classroom setting.

 

Space is limited to 8 seats per day. 

Agenda

Thursday, November 7, 2019
8:00 AM - 8:30 AM
Check-In
8:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Using AF to Analyze Asset Performance
Calculation of and immediate feedback on wind turbine performance is an important part of maximizing revenue from wind generation assets. Waiting for a daily or monthly rundown of performance of a wind farm can cost thousands of dollars of lost production each day. Common causes of deviations from the expected power can be due to equipment issues such as the pitch or jaw system, a curtailment, or an outage. Being able to determine the generation shortfalls from the expected power in near or real time allows the site to take prompt corrective action with the intent to either resolve the performance issue quickly or schedule maintenance to inspect or repair the turbine. Monthly reporting is also helpful in understanding performance issues but if the issues can be resolved sooner, the lost generation can be minimized because the cause may be able to be promptly resolved. Monthly reporting can then be utilized to track top outage causes and plan long term maintenance to correct issues and schedule tower inspections. In this lab you will learn how to use AF to calculate the expected power from a power curve and give immediate feedback on turbines that are not giving their expected output. We will look at tools to build feedback mechanisms into real-time displays as well as creating electronic notifications. You will also learn how to use tools within PI to automate reporting functions such as site power rollups and reports.
