Dynamic process simulations may be used to demonstrate and test control that includes wireless transmitters and/or wireless valves and other final control elements. In most cases, the control system itself may be used to create a process simulation, including simulation of the wireless communication. Such a simulation can be used to check out or demonstrate a wireless control strategy without modifying the modules configured for monitoring, calculation and control. The simulation can be used off-line with the existing distributed control system (DCS) monitoring and control modules and operator interface to explore and get familiar with tools for wireless control, such as…Full Story
