Provecta provides control system services to power and water utilities, extending from analysis and design through installation, optimization, and training. The company has extensive experience in PLC, DCS, Simulink®, and advanced automation applications in mission-critical environments.
Detailed plant and controls modeling is fundamental to Provecta's analysis, commissioning, and optimization procedures. Extensive use of MATLAB®, Simulink, and System Identification Toolbox™ has enabled Provecta to develop cost-effective, accurate process and control structure models for problem identification, concept testing, and loop tuning. One example is the development of a Simulink boiler-turbine and controls model to assess the impact of low-NOx burners on a power plant’s performance. Provecta also provides training services in power plant controls that make extensive use of control loop models developed in Simulink, delivering to students a unique hands-on experience in control dynamics and tuning.
