Article: Reduce Plant Fuel Use, Emissions, and Operating Cost with Performance Models and Predictive Maintenance

As renewables transform power dispatch, many fossil fuel plants are operating at levels far below their original design and optimal efficiency levels. Power generators must manage cycling at thermal plants to produce reliable power, while reducing fuel use and carbon emissions. Plant performance monitoring software coupled with predictive analytics for maintenance can help operators deliver power to meet demand while controlling costs and advancing the goals of the energy transition. 



Learn how the power plant performance software can help power generators address:

  • Lack of visibility into equipment degradation caused by cycling plants to address renewables’ variable output
  • Outdated, manual performance modeling that isn’t providing accurate data or can’t be scaled or provide real-time recommendations
  • Knowing when and where to make improvements based on their plant’s unique and dynamic operating profile



GE Digital senior product managers break down the data analysis and types of modeling that powers GE Digital’s Performance Intelligence with Reliability application, offering real results of plants that have reduced fuel cost, decreased heat rate by 0.5%, reduced major incidents by as much as 40% and improved plant productivity and availability.
