PSValidate is the IPSEpro module available for both, that is responsible for increasing the accuracy of your process model, adjusting component models to expected operational behavior, as well as validating results of acceptance tests of a plant.

When you use measured values, you have to be aware that the measured values are never consistent. Since measurements are always subject to errors, the values will not satisfy the model equations. Basic principles, like conservation of mass and energy will not be satisfied.

Process engineers often attempt to solve those kind of problems by identifying "reliable" values and disregarding others. However, this approach is not satisfying since it is time consuming and not repeatable. Using IPSEpro's validation module PSValidate, you have the ideal solution at your disposal.

Using IPSEpro-PSValidate

You have a well defined method that allows you to use all data and to exploit the redundancies of the measured data to improve your results within IPSEpro projects.

IPSEpro-PSValidate uses statistical methods to eliminate redundancies and to obtain more accurate data. It allows you to:

  • Get the most probable and consistent picture of the state of a process.
  • Identify sensor failures.
  • Increase the accuracy of your model by identifying "weak points".
  • Adjust component models to operational behavior.
  • Analyze the results of acceptance tests and assess if the required specifications are met.
