What is Operations Performance Management?

Operations Performance Management (OPM) Software | software screenshot | GE Digital

Operations Performance Management (OPM) improves the performance of plants, sites, and generation portfolios with Performance Intelligence, Production Planning and Performance Optimization. 

 

Enabled by secure edge-to-cloud technology and built on the Predix Platform, OPM analyzes historical data, plant operations and other data sources to monitor and diagnose issues or areas of improvement, predict capacity and its cost to improve day ahead and intraday planning, deliver executable advice or close the loop and drive desired outcomes for improved efficiency, flexibility, capacity and emissions. 

Realize the power of Operations Performance Management

Maximize productivity

Maximize plant production and margins through efficient and flexible production planning and performance monitoring and diagnostics processes.

Accelerate time-to-value

Out-of-the box key performance indicator (KPI) catalog of thermal performance and financial calculations help enable faster time-to-value.

Meet financial targets

Leverage improved performance, capacity and heat rate predictions that project cost, revenue, and margin to meet financial targets.

Increase confidence

Build certainty that your operating plan will optimize use of plant capabilities without impacting reliability.

Enable operational decision-making

OPM supports operational decision-making so power generators can rapidly respond to market demands. It provides accurate, clear, and complete situational awareness to help maximize outcomes.

Drive Results with Operations Performance Management for Power Generation

OPM Performance Intelligence | Digital Energy | GE

Performance Intelligence

Achieve operating targets with key performance indicators (KPIs), scorecards and analytics-based advisors.

 

What traders and plant operators have traditionally lacked are comprehensive, timely and accurate data and tools that provide an integrated single source of truth to make sense of it all. Only with a complete picture of the operations, maintenance and actual capability of a power plant, coupled with market and environmental conditions, is it possible to make decisions about dispatch that maximize revenues while reducing fuel and maintenance costs.

 

Autonomous Tuning software helps gas turbine optimization and carbon emission reductions

Autonomous tuning for gas turbines

Fewer Emissions & Less Fuel – Every Two Seconds

 

Autonomous Tuning is an on-premises solution that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to continually find the ideal flame temperatures and fuel splits for optimal combustion. The software senses changes in ambient temperature, gas fuel properties and degradation, and sends real-time adjustments to the controls every two seconds. The Level 2 software is fully bound by the controls system safety-critical programming and is unable to harm the turbine.
