DeltaV Process Control System

CM4120 Unit Operations Lab January 2011

Evolution of Process Control Layout and Architecture of the DeltaV system in the PSCC Physical connections between process instrumentation and the DCS What the engineers and operators see

Evolution of Controllers
1930s Pneumatic Controllers air pressure w/ flappers, bellows, and valves adjust valve position based on measured process variable for P, PI, later PID control 1950s Electronic Controllers transistors, resistors, and capacitors for P, PI, PID control capable of remote installation 1960s Mainframe Computer Control Refineries were typical users Alarming capability and supervisory control Single point of failure, no user-friendly graphical interface

Evolution of Controllers
Late 1970s Distributed Control Systems (DCS) Networked computers distributed thru plant Pre-configured controllers Data archival capabilities Included an operator console Hardware was proprietary Late 1990s DSCs built on commodity hardware platforms (COTS) Better scalability Affordable

Distributed Control System (DCS) Functionality
