34 © Siemens AG All Rights Reserved. Industry SectorPage 34 SIMATIC PCS 7 Industry Sector Page 34 © Siemens AG All Rights Reserved.

35 Industry SectorPage 35 SIMATIC PCS 7 Optimization of Energy Efficiency 1/2 Challenge: Many process control applications are characterized by facts like: start-up / shutdown procedures, change of operating points, or process-related dependency in closed-loops. This has a negative impact on the energy balance. Normally, too much energy is used, and this by reduced yield, less throughput and long service life Solution: Intelligent energy optimization with SIMATIC PCS 7 Advance Process Control Benefits: Energy consumption is clearly reduced (3 to 10%) because the standard deviation is minimized (up to 200%) and can be adjusted fast Yield is increased (about 2 to 10%) while energy consumption remains stable Transition between different operating points is optimized, which leads to faster operating point changes – this reduces energy consumption

36 © Siemens AG All Rights Reserved. Industry SectorPage 36 SIMATIC PCS 7 Optimization of Energy Efficiency 2/2 Challenge: 20% of the world wide electrical energy demand in production plants is used for pump works. Application of redundant systems or special monitoring systems involves a high financial, energetic and plant specific additional expense Solution: SIMATIC PCS 7 Plant Asset Management with Condition Monitoring Benefits: SIMATIC PCS 7 offers a cost effective and energy saving solution for diagnosis of pumps through clever & intelligent combination as well as interpretation of measured data

37 © Siemens AG All Rights Reserved. Industry SectorPage 37 Energy Efficiency SIMATIC PCS 7 with SIMATIC Powerrate Challenge: Many companies do not have the required transparency regarding energy consumptions and the main cost originator The tariffs, arranged with the energy supplier, are based on energy peak values. But the average consumption is much lower Energy limits are often exceeded and thereby causing additional costs or contractual penalty Solution: Optimal monitoring and control of energy consumption with integration of the Power Management Solution with SIMATIC powerrate for SIMATIC PCS 7 – a software add-on Energy consumption monitoring (power, current, voltage) by integration of SENTRON PAC power monitoring devices and switch breakers and motor management systems in PCS 7 Benefits : SIMATIC powerrate provides transparency in energy consumption from the feed-in up to the consumer Energy data including of non-electrical energies (e.g. gas, steam, oil...) are continuously collected, archived and proceeded Identification of energy saving capabilities in combination with a more efficient energy purchasing will help to reduce the energy costs Transparency enables the optimization of the energy consumption – und this totally integrated in the PCS 7 environment

38 © Siemens AG All Rights Reserved. Industry SectorPage 38 SIMATIC PCS 7 Reduction of Waste Challenge: Many process control applications are characterized by facts like: start-up / shutdown procedures, change of operating points, or diversity of products and product quality as well. In the change-over undesirable products will be produced (waste) Solution: High product quality with Advance Process Control Optimized material transportation with SIMATIC Route Control Benefits: Transition between different operating points are optimized, which means faster operating point changes and less production downtimes less waste Increased yield (typ. about 2 to 10%) less waste Consideration of material tolerance (no unwanted mixing) (no pudding of vanilla flavor with chocolate flavor) Consideration of the status of the pipelines/reactors (cleaned,...) Exclusive reservation of pipelines (e.g. for cure substances)

39 © Siemens AG All Rights Reserved. Industry SectorPage 39 SIMATIC PCS 7 Water & Wastewater Treatment Challenge: Industrial wastewater treatment plants (e.g. at starch production) require thinning / neutralizing processes with long dead times, which are difficult to control from the closed loop control- strategy point of view There are processes in industrial wastewater treatment plants, which are represented and automated with standard libraries only in a restricted way Water / wastewater plants are geographically distributed over a wide area (sewer network, pump stations). The integration of these distributed plants into an comprehensive automation solution is a challenge. Solution: Intelligent plant optimization with Advance Process Control Optimized solution based on water libraries Efficient plant management due to the integration of TeleControl Benefits: Thinning-/neutralizing-processes are optimized without wasting recourses The Water Library provides an optimal solution for industrial and commercial drinking water and wastewater treatment plants The distributed areas of plants are integrated into the total plant configuration in the same Look&Feel. This helps to reduce operating failures by the operators (TeleControl)

40 © Siemens AG All Rights Reserved. Industry SectorPage 40 SIMATIC PCS 7 Reducing emissions Challenge: Processes that run at a sub-optimal operating point or take too long to switch between operating points waste energy, creating additional and unnecessary emissions. Faults and malfunctions can have fatal consequences in the process industry, so it is vital to do everything possible to eliminate them. The number one priority is to minimize the potential threats to people, plant and the environment by technical means without any negative effect on the industrial production process. Solution : Emissions control and prevention with Advanced Process Control Integration of process safety into SIMATIC PCS 7 Benefits : Standard deviation is minimized (typically by up to 200%) and optimally controlled lower emissions Energy consumption is significantly reduced (typically by around 3 to 10%) reduced consumption means lower emissions (COx, NOx, etc.) Safety: greater safety for people, plant and the environment (dioxin disaster in Seveso)
