RWE Neurath power plant
The RWE brown coal power plant in Neurath uses our superior technology for controlling burners. , Our system optimizes the efficiency while adhering to CO and NOx limits exactly. A combination of neural networks for modeling (NeuroModel®) and genetic algorithms for process control (NeuroModel® GenOpt™ Online) affects the target values of the process control system and hence takes over the work of experienced equipment operators. Since the system assesses the process status every second and reacts accordingly, the resulting operation is of course significantly better than a human equipment operator would be able to achieve even on a theoretical level.
A similar project with a slightly different objective is currently being concluded at Vattenfall in Lippendorf.
