Bently Performance Software

This software product extends the functionality of System 1® to include online thermodynamic performance monitoring of machinery. By integrating with the System 1 database and display modules, Bently PERFORMANCE™ provides comprehensive information on the condition of machines in combined mechanical and thermodynamic formats.

Effective performance management of machinery assets requires a carefully designed system that combines high quality software and system engineering - from sensors to the thermodynamic calculations that provide performance information. This solution provides all of the extra engineering required to ensure that the available thermodynamic performance information meets stringent requirements for accuracy and repeatability.

System 1 Predictive Emissions Monitoring System (PEMS)

The System 1® Predictive Emissions Monitoring System (PEMS) offered as part of GE's Bently Nevada product suite can predict the level of stack emissions generated by combustion equipment (typically gas turbines) based on ambient conditions, fuel composition and machine operating conditions while taking into account real time degradations.

Emissions models are developed using GE’s knowledge of aeroderivative and industrial gas turbines combining fundamental physics and real emissions test data. The resulting model can be tuned using periodic data from temporarily installed emissions monitoring system for continued or improved accuracy.

System 1 Decision Support 

Decision Support Studio enables users to embed years of knowledge into a usable format of rules that can be broadly applied across a business in a repeatable and manageable process. The System 1 software platform now comes with core Decision Support capability with the ability to write basic rules with parametric calculations using RuleDesk Lite*. Decision Support Studio expands the rule-writing capability using RuleDesk Pro* to include dynamic data, more complex functions and added security and testing capabilities.


RulePaks provide the following benefits:

  • Maximize plant availability
  • Optimize plant maintainability
  • Mitigate Operational Risks
  • Rapid application of expertise from outside your business
  • Asset life extension

RulePaks have the following capabilities:

  • Configurable advisories
  • Robust IT security
