History[ edit ] A pre-DCS era central control room. Whilst the controls are centralised in one place, they are still discrete and not integrated into one system. A DCS control room where plant information and controls are displayed on computer graphics screens. The operators are seated as they can view and control any part of the process from their screens, whilst retaining a plant overview. Evolution of process control operations[ edit ] Process control of large industrial plants has evolved through many stages. Initially, control would be from panels local to the process plant. However this required a large manpower resource to attend to these dispersed panels, and there was no overall view of the process. The next logical development was the transmission of all plant measurements to a permanently-manned central control room. Effectively this was the centralisation of all the localised panels, with the advantages of lower manning levels and easier overview of the process. Often the controllers were behind the control room panels, and all automatic and manual control outputs were transmitted back to plant. However, whilst providing a central control focus, this arrangement was inflexible as each control loop had its own controller hardware, and continual operator movement within the control room was required to view different parts of the process. These could be distributed around plant, and communicate with the graphic display in the control room or rooms. The distributed control system was born. The introduction of DCSs allowed easy interconnection and re-configuration of plant controls such as cascaded loops and interlocks, and easy interfacing with other production computer systems. It enabled sophisticated alarm handling, introduced automatic event logging, removed the need for physical records such as chart recorders, allowed the control racks to be networked and thereby located locally to plant to reduce cabling runs, and provided high level overviews of plant status and production levels.

Origins[ edit ] Early minicomputers were used in the control of industrial processes since the beginning of the s. The DCS largely came about due to the increased availability of microcomputers and the proliferation of microprocessors in the world of process control.

Computers had already been applied to process automation for some time in the form of both direct digital control DDC and setpoint control.

Distributed control system - Wikipedia

Sophisticated for the time continuous as well as batch control was implemented in this way. A more conservative approach was setpoint control, where process computers supervised clusters of analog process controllers. A workstation provided visibility into the process using text and crude character graphics. Availability of a fully functional graphical user interface was a way away.

Development[ edit ] Central to the DCS model was the inclusion of control function blocks. One of the first embodiments of object-oriented software, function blocks were self-contained "blocks" of code that emulated analog hardware control components and performed tasks that were essential to process control, such as execution of PID algorithms.

Function blocks continue to endure as the predominant method of control for DCS suppliers, and are supported by key technologies such as Foundation Fieldbus [7] today. Midac Systems, of Sydney, Australia, developed an objected-oriented distributed direct digital control system in The central system ran 11 microprocessors sharing tasks and common memory and connected to a serial communication network of distributed controllers each running two Z80s.

Today the functionality of SCADA and DCS systems are very similar, but DCS tends to be used on large continuous process plants where high reliability and security is important, and the control room is not geographically remote.

The key attribute of a DCS is its reliability due to the distribution of the control processing around nodes in the system. This mitigates a single processor failure. If a processor fails, it will only affect one section of the plant process, as opposed to a failure of a central computer which would affect the whole process.

The accompanying diagram is a general model which shows functional manufacturing levels using computerised control.

Levels 1 and 2 are the functional levels of a traditional DCS, in which all equipment are part of an integrated system from a single manufacturer.

Levels 3 and 4 are not strictly process control in the traditional sense, but where production control and scheduling takes place. The processor nodes and operator graphical displays are connected over proprietary or industry standard networks, and network reliability is increased by dual redundancy cabling over diverse routes.

The processors receive information from input modules, process the information and decide control actions to be signalled by the output modules. The field inputs and outputs can be analog signals e. DCSs are connected to sensors and actuators and use setpoint control to control the flow of material through the plant.

A typical application is a PID controller fed by a flow meter and using a control valve as the final control element. The DCS sends the setpoint required by the process to the controller which instructs a valve to operate so that the process reaches and stays at the desired setpoint.

Processes are not limited to fluidic flow through pipes, however, and can also include things like paper machines and their associated quality controls, variable speed drives and motor control centers , cement kilns , mining operations , ore processing facilities, and many others. DCSs in very high reliability applications can have dual redundant processors with "hot" switch over on fault, to enhance the reliability of the control system.

Modern DCSs also support neural networks and fuzzy logic applications. Recent research focuses on the synthesis of optimal distributed controllers, which optimizes a certain H-infinity or the H 2 control criterion.

Distributed control systems DCS are dedicated systems used in manufacturing processes that are continuous or batch-oriented. Process control of large industrial plants has evolved through many stages. Initially, control would be from panels local to the process plant. However this required a large manpower resource to attend to these dispersed panels, and there was no overall view of the process.

Computers had already been applied to process automation for some time in the form of both direct digital control DDC and setpoint control.

Sophisticated for the time continuous as well as batch control was implemented in this way. Trend display of various process parameters provides the effective display and easy monitoring. These can also be configured to have control capabilities. Communication media and protocol Communication media consists of transmission cables to transmit the data such as coaxial cables, copper wires, fiber optic cables and sometimes it might be wireless.

Communication protocols selected depends on the number of devices to be connected to this network. For example, RS supports only for 2 devices and Profibus for devices or nodes. In DCS, two or more communication protocols are used in between two or more areas such as between field control devices and distributed controllers and other one between distributed controllers and supervisory control stations such as operating and engineering stations.

These are used in manufacturing processes where designing of multiple products are in multiple procedures such as batch process control. System redundancy: System Redundancy DCS facilitates system availability when needed by redundant feature at every level. Resuming of the steady state operation after any outages, whether planned or unplanned is somewhat better compared to other automation control devices.

Redundancy raises the system reliability by maintaining system operation continuously even in some abnormalities while system is in operation. Lot of Predefined function blocks: Predefined Function block DCS offers many algorithms, more standard application libraries, pre-tested and pre-defined functions to deal with large complex systems.

This makes programming to control various applications being easy and consuming less time to program and control.

Powerful programming languages: It provides more number of programming languages like ladder, function block, sequential, etc for creating the custom programming based on user interest. But this type of industrial control system covers large geographical areas whereas DCS covers confined area.
