Constellation will deploy the SmartSignal Shield predictive-diagnostic solution along with SmartSignal Cycle Watch software, a high-speed solution specifically designed for combustion turbine start-ups.

The company uses Proficy SmartSignal technology in its own Performance Monitoring & Diagnostic Center, with support from the SmartSignal in-house Availability & Performance Center, to improve the performance of plants.

Constellation initially tested the SmartSignal Epi-Center software in 2008 and expanded its use in 2009 to five plants, including coal, combined-cycle and combustion turbine.

SmartSignal Epi-Center software is a solution for managing, controlling and optimizing equipment maintenance and industry operations.
