The thermoeconomic diagnosis (TDG) system has been developed by ELCOGAS and CIRCE. Its purpose is to combine the plant information in order to help in definition of operating patterns and describe the technical limitations for more competitive plant management.
TDG is a tool which allows :
- Calculation and monitorization of continuous operating costs, efficiency and heating value
- Assessment of the reasons for deviation from cost and efficiency targets
- Operation register
- Engineering analysis
