Using PI ACE Iberdrola has deployed a tool for advanced equipment monitoring. Modeling the equipment and analyzing the failures modes Iberdrola developed models on PI ACE that send notifications to operation staff in order to prevent failures on them. We will also show other tools developed on PI ACE including performance equipment calculations and the equipment state information system. This presentation will demonstrate how Iberdrola can get value from our assets using real-time calculations.
