Shrinking fuel resources, CO2 pressures and volatile fuel prices have forced everyone in the power sector to minimize the cost of power generation without compromising on the productivity. Maximizing the efficiency with which the fuel is converted into electricity has become the priority in the power industry. Therefore, today the power sector strategy has shifted from “Generation Maximization” to “Performance optimization & Generation maximization”. Equipment performance of power plants or any process industry degrades with time and with the influence of its working environment. However, it can be addressed by properly identifying and closely monitoring the system using the process mathematical models or using input output methods. Plant Performance Monitoring is an offering under Kalkitech’s Eltrix Generation Optimization - it is a state of art real time performance monitoring solution extensively used by various power generation utilities having Thermal, Gas, Combined cycle, Co-generation and Hydro generation.

Eltrix Engineering Editor is a rich client interface which allows you to configure your plant data, build equipment and connectivity models, generate measurement and history database, input plant design values and fit correlation curves, configure OPC UA/ OPC DA interface for real-time & history data that needs to be exchanged with external systems. Eltrix Runtime Server performs the real time data update,
objects oriented storage & retrieval of data, performance/ efficiency computations, with analysis functions. It has an OPC UA/DA communication driver which writes back the output data to external system over a TCP/IP or Web Service transportation layer.

Performance calculation, monitoring and analysis deliver certain additional values when integrated with other solutions within the power plant eco system ● Performance Optimization to improve efficiency by reducing heat losses ● Equipment Stress monitoring, diagnosis and lifetime monitoring ● Reliability Centric Plant Maintenance and minimizing Plant down times


Eltrix Decision Portal is the end user interface for plant operators or managers to visualize & analyze the plant performance data, its impacts over rich set of plant mimic, charts and reports. You can create information dashboards to monitor key performance indicators and the support of Web 2.0 technology makes it possible to deliver time critical information over a standard web client.
