Case Study: Applying Digitalisation to Processes at RUSAL's Aluminium Smelters

Thursday 23rd May 08:30 - 09:00

RUSAL keeps following modern trends in process digitalization and continues to develop & improve in-house Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), the ‘SAAT’ Reduction Process Control System, and the Virtual Cell dynamics model.

In particular:

  • Local MESs are being largely integrated into one system, providing for a combined data stream,
  • New measuring tools were developed for the ‘SAAT’ system to measure reduction process parameters, and
  • An updated version of the Virtual Cell 2.0 dynamics model was constructed to simulate physical & chemical processes in the cell.
  • Information & logistic system to monitor vehicle traffic,
  • Predictive process analysis based on artificial intelligence,
  • Computer-vision-based video monitoring and detection of emissions, and
  • ‘Digital twin’ of the Taishet Carbon Plant.

Also, RUSAL ETC launched the following projects:

  • Information & logistic system to monitor vehicle traffic,
  • Predictive process analysis based on artificial intelligence,
  • Computer-vision-based video monitoring and detection of emissions, and
  • ‘Digital twin’ of the Taishet Carbon Plant.

The above and other promising projects will soon become the driver for the development of RUSAL’s facilities.
