At the 2018 Ovation Users’ Group Conference, Emerson’s James Thompson and Sheldon Willis provided an update on embedded simulation in the Ovation distributed control system. Ovation-based high-fidelity simulator models are embedded directly into virtual Ovation controllers as compared with the more traditional approach with third-party models that run in separate hardware. This single platform for […]

Let’s open the week with a video for DeltaV distributed control system users on ways to integrate devices with Ethernet-based protocols into the DeltaV system. Examples of these devices include motor control centers, variable speed drives, programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and various types of online analyzers. In this 6:17 YouTube video, Emerson’s Rune Reppenhagen demonstrates […]

Dynamic process simulations can be used across the lifecycle of a capital project from early verification studies of process designs to training the operators to prepare to operate the running facility. For offshore oil & gas production facilities these simulations are even more important given the remoteness, space limitations and transportation requirements for the project […]
