|dc.description.abstract||The Plant Energy Cost Optimization Program (PECOP) is a Management System designed to reduce operating cost in a continuous operating multi product plant by reviewing all cost factors and selecting plant wide production schedules which are most economical and efficient. Key requirements include production units and energy systems' that are operating below full capacity, storage for production inventory, economic data on fuel and electrical costs, production plans and energy efficiency ratings of various components. The requirements are integrated via alternative operating techniques such as block operating, adjusting maintenance schedules and coordinating startup and shutdown schedules to optimize operating costs.||en_US|
