Emerson Exchange 3D plots Process Analysis


Published on

This presentation on Process Analysis using 3D plots was given at Emerson Exchange, 2010. Details are provided on a field trail in which the DeltaV historian was modified to support array parameters and a web enabled interfaces was used to provide a 3D plot of array data. Information is provided on how this was used to look at absorber column and stripper column temperature profiles.

  3. 3. Introduction <ul><li>The benefits of 3-D plots in data analysis and history collection of array parameters have been demonstrated in a field trial. In this presentation we addressed: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Target applications – Analysis of high speed processes, distributed processes and data from spectral analyzers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Historian modifications/design for support of arrays data. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Web enabled 3-D plotting, how array support was used to improve update performance. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Field Trial at University of Texas, Pickle Research Center where absorber temperatures were analyzed during startup 3-D plotting and . </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The technical feasibility of providing 3-D plotting and historian collection of array data has been explore and the value of such a capability proven in two of the target application. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Analysis of High Speed Data Analysis <ul><li>DeltaV supports measurement and control execution at speed as fast as100 msec. </li></ul><ul><li>To enable samples as fast as 100msec to be trended and analyzed, samples may be collected at the controller as an data set/ array and communicated to the historian. </li></ul><ul><li>Values are saved in historian and accessed as though they had been reported at the module execution rate. </li></ul><ul><li>Module executing at 100msec was created to place high speed data into an array parameter. Arrays communicated at a much slower rate e.g. once per 2 sec. </li></ul>Controlle r Historian Application station Analysis Tools e.g. Entech Toolkit Profession /Operator Station Standard Trend – 100msec Resolution Array/Data Set
  5. 5. Distributed Process <ul><li>Temperature and/or pressure distribution across a process unit is often important from an operation perspective. </li></ul><ul><li>Univariate plots are ineffective in finding problems </li></ul><ul><li>3-D plots show relationship of measurements and how this relationship changes with time </li></ul>TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT TT
  6. 6. Spectral Analyzers <ul><li>Spectral analyzers may be used at critical points throughout the process. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pharmaceutical - inspection of feedstock, blend uniformity, granulation, drying and coating and particle size analysis . Online QA/QC tool for production. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Chemical - acid value, adhesive content, cure, melt index, and polymer processes -reaction monitoring </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Refinery, petrochemical - fuel production monitoring </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A wide variety of commercial on-line, at-line, and laboratory spectral analyzers are available. </li></ul><ul><li>Calibration of an NIR analyzer is based on use of spectral data to develop principal component analysis(PCA) and projection of latent structures (PLS) models. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Example: NIR Analyzers <ul><li>Careful development of a set of calibration samples and their use in PCA/PLS model development is the basis for near-infrared analytical methods. </li></ul><ul><li>For purposes of analysis, the spectral data for a sample should be saved and accessed as one set of data e.g. an array . </li></ul><ul><li>3-D plotting of spectral data can be helpful in screening samples and in analyzing on-line use of spectral data. </li></ul>Off-line PCA/ PLS Model Development On-line Quality Parameter Prediction Historian Array/Data Set Application station NIR Analyzer Controller VIM Interface 3-D Plot of Spectral Data
  8. 8. Field Trial - DvCH Array Handling Enhancement <ul><li>All samples for an array are held in the database under a single tag, to enable high access speed (minimization of seek times) or logical grouping of data (e.g. spectral analysis) </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation caters for use of successive elements of array for different measured variables or of the same measured variable (high speed trending) </li></ul><ul><li>Designed also for use of 2-D array to hold several successive scans of several different measured variables </li></ul>2-D array, variable per column Variable per row entry Single Variable Time Time

Field Trial Design Considerations <ul><li>Designed to allow full incorporation in DvCH product </li></ul><ul><li>Existing facilities to be supported for each individual measured variable in scanned array, as if configured individually for history collection </li></ul><ul><li>Existing read of tag for specified interval, applied to tag for first element of array, gives all samples for array within time interval in time-stamp order (including array index part) so </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Samples in time order </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Samples at same time in array-index order </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Hence DvCH clients (e.g. PHV, DeltaV Reporter and OPC HDA) can meaningfully access history without code change. (See PHV display on previous slide). </li></ul><ul><li>Easy to extend client-interface for individual measured variable access etc. e.g. 3-D plotting app </li></ul>

Surface Plot, Bar Plot , Series Plot , Line Plot, Scatter Plot, Wirefame Plot, Mesh  Plot </li></ul><ul><li>Limited number of commercially available components for use with a web browser. </li></ul><ul><li>Wire frame plot has may advantages in viewing and analyzing date. </li></ul>3D Bar Plot 3D Wire Frame and Surface Plot
