PI Sigmafine is used to calculate mass balance equations and reconcile bad measurement data. Ales will discuss how this application applies to T&D power, using examples from Thames Water in London. Ales will also discuss how Sigmafine fits in the PI Application Framework (PI AF), where models can be imported into PI, and shared by different views. The configuration piece within the PI AF becomes common for all applications.
Ales has over eighteen years of experience in the field of process design and feasibility studies for refineries, petrochemical, and plastics plants. In previous positions he was involved in all aspects of process work, including preparation of equipment specifications, material balances, heat balances, utility balances, cost estimates for de-bottlenecking projects, and computer simulations of grass units. He was responsible for responsible for model development, technical support, and installation of Pace Consultants’ proprietary FCCU and Kinetic Reforming Models, and linear program modeling of refineries. Currently at OSI, Ales is working in development on Sigmafine and the PI application framework, and introducing Sigmafine into new industries. In his spare time he takes care of about 170 animals at his ranch outside of Houston.
