Perceptive Engineering launches their advanced Operator Training Platform

16 May 2016

PerceptiveOTP is an affordable training tool, capable of providing an excellent real-time simulation of evaporator and spray dryer systems and their control.

PerceptiveOTP is based on an empirical model of the client’s actual process, so it accurately reflects the variety of non-ideal characteristics that challenge operators on a daily basis. This provides a unique and robust environment in which to learn the fundamentals or hone new skills.

PerceptiveOTP offers a configurable operator graphics package to enable rapid prototyping of new displays or import existing operator screens. Bespoke simulators may easily be developed as required.


Multiple models can be used to characterise different operating modes, such as start-up, grade change and steady state operation. Individual models can be developed to cater for different product formulations.


Various process upsets and disturbances are available, from simple step changes in process conditions such as switching feed tanks, through to environmental swings, such as changes in ambient humidity. Plant faults and sensor failures can be simulated, testing the ability of the operator - and the process controls - to recognise a fault has occurred and recover the process.


Advanced Process Control (APC) and Optimisation can be included in the simulation. PerceptiveOTP then becomes an ideal training tool for APC deployment.


Historical process data can be streamed through the Training Platform, to review key events and determine the best approach to take next time.


PerceptiveOTP includes a very powerful Scenario Player feature. This optimisation engine gives the operator an optimal solution vs. the current simulated process operating point. The power of the player is the ease with which the operator can change operating ranges of process variables to see the impact on the optimum operating point, before translating this training into the real world.


The training environment takes the operator through a series of tasks and scores their performance, generating a training certificate as part of their ongoing development.
