WAN-101-1 PGC 5000 with multi-oven application capability provides solution to an analyzer upgrade problem Faced with obsolete process gas chromatographs, the process engineers made a decision to upgrade analyzers and upgrade the application simultaneously. Design flexibility in the new process Gas Chromatograph (GC) platform enabled the addition of new measurements by extending the analysis across multiple GC ovens, controlled and integrated through a single controller. This configuration reduced capital expense on the analyzer and reduced space and installation cost at the site. Additional site installation savings are realized by using remote CANBus control of the sample system, eliminating the individual air control lines from the analyzer to the sample system required for each stream. WAN-102-1 Continuous Gas Analyzers for on-line measurement of greenhouse gases Greenhouse gases from combustion and process sources are known to have a major impact on the earth's atmosphere and can contribute significantly to climate change. Global efforts are underway to measure the impact of these greenhouse gases. This paper discusses Non Dispersive Infrared Analyzer (NDIR) gas analyzers that are used to measure and provide precise data to quantify emissions of vapors such as CO2, CH4, N2O and SF6. The information from analysis can be used to improve the financial impact when reporting and controlling emissions. Technology discussed uses analyzers which meet the requirements of high reliability, low operating costs and global standards that are simple to operate. WAN-103-1 CO2 and THC greenhouse gas upgrades and embedded service support solutions Interest is growing both globally and in North America to measure and report greenhouse gases in response to new legislation and programs. Continuous Gas Analyzers, which have a historically proven record for measuring stack emissions, also have the capability and stability required to measure greenhouse gases such as CO2, CH4, and THC. Existing ABB gas analyzers, which are based on a modular concept, are easily upgraded to include greenhouse gases. The technology discussed uses analyzers which meet the requirements of high reliability, low operating costs, but meet the global standards required by these measurements. WAN-104-1 Meeting RVP reporting requirements using on-line Air Saturated Reid Vapor Pressure Refiners have to deal with bias between laboratory and process Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) analyzers in gasoline blending operations. This bias is variable depending upon the blend, both seasonal and octane level. It demonstrated that this variable bias is caused by different levels of dissolved air in the process samples. The laboratory methods for measuring RVP include a manual step to saturate the air prior to measurement, while the process RVP analyzers have not had this step. A new on-line process RVP analyzer has the capability to automatically saturate the sample with air prior to taking the measurement. WAN-105-1 Case study: Optimizing a refinery CDU using FTNIR and Advanced Process Control A Crude Distillation Unit (CDU) project demonstrates the use and advantages of Fourier Transform Near Infrared (FTNIR) as a multi-stream, multi-property analytical method for CDU optimization. Advanced process control is often implemented using a traditional approach through multiple control loops, heat/ mass balances and pressure/temperature/flow measurements. Process Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) using fiber-optic with separate heated sample flow-cell cabinets per process stream allows accurate multi-stream, multi-property quality data to be fed at an appropriate data-rate to the CDU on-line optimizer real-time. The challenges associated with crude distillation and a case study of a typical implementation using on-line process FTIR will be presented. WAN-106-1 Characterization of landfill gases as a supplemental fuel source Over the last few years, landfill gas has developed into a viable fuel source. Utilizing this as a fuel source also has the dual purpose of reducing greenhouse emissions and reuse of resources. ABB Analytical has worked with our customers to develop solutions that work under variable sample conditions and meet the rigorous demands of feed forward control in landfill gas fuel delivery.

This session will provide attendees with an overview of the "Optimized Mine Ventilation on Demand" system. The system is designed to dilute and remove hazardous substances, control the thermal environment, and provide oxygen for humans and mobile equipment engine combustion. The system optimizes energy management of the mine through automation. WMM-105-1 Wireless energy management for cement plants This workshop will discuss the use of a broadband wireless system to provide plant-wide energy monitoring and optimization. The use of wireless provided considerable cost savings and allows the plant to add multiple converged services for real-time operation. This multi-hop wireless mesh network uses an adaptive switched routing architecture which means a highly reliable and persistent connection is required in demanding environments. The solution provides a high-performance wireless network infrastructure based on Layer 2, allowing ANY device that has an Ethernet interface. It offers such capabilities as jamming avoidance, coexistence, active redundancy and fault tolerance. It is now possible to deploy solutions rapidly with confidence that they will work without complexity. WMM-106-1 Boost energy efficiency by converting low temperature waste heat to electricity High and rising energy and fossil fuel prices and the requirement to reduce CO2 emissions are strong drivers for innovative technical solutions. Highly energy intensive industries like cement are looking intensively for solutions to reduce their energy costs. An untapped energy resource is the vast amount of low temperature waste heat lost in cement plants today. This workshop will show our technical solution to convert waste heat into electricity and provide answers to key questions.

WRE-118-1 Using a STATCOM to meet the grid code requirements Over the last decade there has been a major increase in the proportion of wind power as installed capacity. The Transmission System Operators (TSO) have become increasingly concerned that tighter grid connection rules are required to limit the effects of wind power parks on network quality and stability. Wind power installations are being required to support the grid in the same way as other generation sources. This class will review steady state and dynamic reactive power capability, continuously acting voltage control and fault ride through requirements and how Static Compensators (STATCOMs) are well suited to fulfill these needs.

WWA-101-1 Feature enhancements in VFDs bring new levels of control to pumping applications (LD) Make it easy! Meeting the specification requirements for low harmonics in water and wastewater motor-control applications is a must, as utilities and government agencies review their product and system options for new installations and retrofits. Ultra-low harmonic drives focus on prevention as the cure, rather than as mitigation as a fix. This strategy and product solution make it easy for you ­ whether you are a consulting engineer, system integrator, work for a water district, or are an end-user ­ to meet your specifications handily and easily. WWA-102-1 AquaMaster and Watermaster, the next generation of flow products for the water industry With the rising cost of water transportation, water losses and regulatory requirements, end-users have been finding ways to control and monitor the water flow and pressure in their distribution system to reduce leakage and manage the water resource. ABB has introduced a line of products to help that include battery powered units with self diagnostics and extremely accurate low-end measurement of water. This session will exam the application of these meters and their cost savings. WWA-103-1 Energy efficiency in RO desalination plants To achieve optimal, energy efficient operation of membranebased water treatment systems, units have to operate at best efficiency points to keep productivity levels and performance. A new technology of an on-line monitoring solution for early identification of membrane performance degradation has been developed. The solution ­ being integrated with the operational environment ­ provides an insight to the membrane condition in real-time by calculating selected parameters that are trended and thus form the basis for taking maintenance decisions (e.g. planning of chemical cleaning). Optimal set-points for the pumps are calculated to keep production levels. Benefits assessment will be presented. WWA-104-1 Energy efficiency in water applications The link between water and energy is of crucial importance as energy is the predominant element of Operational Expenditures (OPEX) for all water and wastewater applications (desalination, distribution and treatment).
