TRANSFORM YOUR DATA INTO ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS

Traditional utility operations consist of multiple systems, each configured to measure and monitor singular machines or small groups of equipment. Information and people work in silos, and operator capacity to analyze collected data is limited. Utility operations management and staff need the ability to consolidate and provide a “single pane of glass” to monitor how assets are performing—holistically—across the power plant, generation fleet and transmission and distribution grid.

Asset Performance Management (APM) is a software application that helps to increase reliability and availability of power plants and power transmission and distribution assets while reducing maintenance costs and unplanned downtime. APM connects disparate data sources and uses advanced analytics to turn data into actionable insights while fostering collaboration and knowledge management across the organization.

END-TO-END COVERAGE FROM BOILER TO TRANSFORMER

Every asset within an operating environment contributes risk to the overall functioning of the plant or electric grid. For an APM solution to be most effective, the analytics of that solution must monitor every asset and must cover the most critical failure modes of those assets. APM leverages GE’s deep experience designing, building and maintaining assets combined with a catalog of advanced analytic capabilities and platform for analytic execution that can operate in real-time. Today, GE’s APM is a leader in failure mode coverage as defined by the North American Reliability Corporation (NERC).

BALANCE RISK AND COST WITH INTELLIGENT ASSET STRATEGIES FOR POWER

GE has deep expertise engineering, designing, building and maintaining power generation, transmission, and distribution assets. APM enables operators to utilize this domain knowledge by providing common methodologies to develop and manage asset strategies. By balancing risk, business goals, and resource investment, our power plant asset performance management software allows utilities to focus costs on the most critical assets—helping to reduce maintenance and inventory costs, increase availability and reliability, and move away from reactive maintenance practices to a proactive approach.

HOW DOES APM WORK?
APM combines your asset and business data with industry best practices, and GE’s subject matter expertise, to deliver advanced analytics that enable enhanced maintenance strategies.

APM HEALTH DELIVERS

  • Visibility into machine status and issues and all asset-related KPIs including cost, work orders, and history anywhere, anytime
  • Better decision-making through a single source of truth that crosses organizational silos
  • A wing-to-wing story that brings together real-time data, alarms, events, and other operational data to get a clear picture of asset performance

Distributed generation, renewables, smart grids, storage, and prosumers are accelerating the rapid transformation of the power industry. Gas and coal-fired power plants must be operated in ways they were not designed to, and utilities must refine how they monitor and maintain these critical generation assets.

The Digital Wind Farm is built on the Predix platform, which provides a digital infrastructure for your wind farm, enabling you to collect, visualize, and analyze unit and site level data. Through the constant collection of this data-- weather, component information, service reports and performance of similar models throughout the GE fleet-- a predictive model is built and data is turned into actionable insights. These models serve as the basis of our new suite of applications, including Asset Performance Management, allowing wind farm operators to enhance maintenance strategy, improve reliability and availability and increase annual energy production.
