A co-generation plant in Eastern Canada automated their operation procedures to improve cost efficiency. Using cost functions, constraints, legal clauses (contract with pulp mills and Hydro- Quebec), and combustible costs, the system minimizes energy costs and selects combustibles, automatically. A consultant designed the strategy and modelled the process and operations. The plant personnel configured the strategies and fine tuned the system with the consultant. Operators, technicians, and managers were trained and actively participated in the system development. All the work was completed within a month. Plant personnel are now totally autonomous: they can modify the system, change priorities, adjust costs, etc. The R.O.I. was less than three months. The system has been used for twelve months without failure, and it has generated excellent benefits.
