Self-tuning AI realizes carbon neutral, flexible power generation

Fireside chat by Tata Consultancy Services and ADEX

Energy transition is forcing Thermal power plants to be agile like home inverters – as reliable, autonomous, backup capacity. But are they geared for this challenge? Rise of renewable generation and subsequent cyclic operations has caused reduction in plant performance, high emissions, thermal stress, deteriorating asset health, instability in minimum load. This impacts their efficiency, reliability, profitability, and long-term sustainability.

While there are solutions for these, most often it includes expensive retrofits. But what if self-tuning AI holds the answer with a simple add-on approach to the existing plant DCS systems that can turn tables and make flexible operations into an opportunity rather than a problem?

TCS and ADEX are partnering to bring the Next Generation of solutions for Flexible Power Generation. Join this fireside chat as leaders from AI & Control space unpack the nuances of enabling flexible operations and the interplay of control loop optimization and process optimization which is essential to realize this goal. A futuristic mix of technologies such as self-tuning AI, digital twins and IoT are leveraged in the right domain context to realize value. Many utilities have been pioneers in this approach and this session could enable you to leap from their shoulders!
