Dedan Kimathi University of Technology (DeKUT) takes the Digital Twin Technology to the Industry.
DeKUT through the Siemens Training and Certification Centre has developed a technology called the Digital Twin that makes it possible for a system to be replicated in a virtual form such that it can be used, monitored and controlled virtually. This technology has been tested and verified at the centre. In a publication titled Process Modelling of Geothermal Drilling System Using Digital Twin for Real-Time Monitoring and Control the Digital twin technology aims to address the challenge in the Geothermal drilling system.
The proposed digital twin technology facilitates inexperienced personnel to real-time drilling bit such as speed, feed, irregularities, etc. and decide to take measures which may lead to faster maintenance at a reduced cost.
