Alarm Management for Power Generation



Alarm Management can be a challenging topic, there are many factors that can influence the operators in negative ways: Long standing alarms can distract the operators unnecessarily, alarms could be describing normal processes that require no action from the operator, and having a serious alarm hiding in a large amount of low level alarms, are just a few examples.

Today it is very common to receive more than 2000 alarms a day per operator, even the best operator will have a limited capacity for handling this overwhelming amount of information. It is possible to correct these issues with proper alarm management. Controlling any plant with proper alarm management can greatly improve efficiency, and give plant operators better control over all processes.
