Jerry Weber, Manager of Operations Support for of Edison Mission Energy, talks about PI for the “next generation” of power generation. Edison is a major independent power producer, owner of 30 power plants and 10,634 megawatts. PI has been used effectively for Edison’s coal fleet, and will be adapted to their current and future wind farms across the United States. Jerry believes that once the challenge of embedding PI in every wind farm is met, it will allow Edison to turn data into measurement and management. Edison also plans to use pattern recognition facilitated by PI to predict future process events, which will allow analysis, preventative maintenance, and reduce unplanned events.
