PiT Navigator

AI-Based Combustion Control & Optimization System

PiT Navigator is a modular software system designed to optimize technical processes, particularly combustion processes. It enhances existing control systems by employing advanced model-predictive control methods for complex processes. This includes the utilization of data-based process models to anticipate process behavior. With this approach, PiT Navigator can proactively respond even before the process measurement technology detects a change in the controlled process variable.

The Self-Optimization Process Control Solution

PiT Navigator is a high-level Advanced Process Control (APC) system, optimizing operations even under suboptimal conditions. Based on sophisticated process models (artificial neural networks) it continuously computes optimized settings for active mills and the combustion system. These refined settings seamlessly integrate with the DCS to adjust the original set-points.

PiT Navigator is well-suited for a range of industries, including thermal power plants, waste incineration plants, and cement plants. While these sectors all rely on technical firings, the purposes of combustion vary. With PiT Navigator, you can trust that your combustion processes are in capable hands.
