Each Experion PKS controller, including the Application Control Environment (ACE), C200/C200E and C300, has a matching simulation environment. The simulation system environments are identical to the real controllers in terms of control execution, supported I/O and control capacity. This guarantees that a configuration developed on a simulation system will fit the actual controller platform and vice versa.
By using a protected process simulation environment, users can effectively test and modify their control strategies to implement tighter and more efficient process control. In addition, high fidelity process simulation can be used to train plant operators for normal process operations and to deal with specific abnormal situations encountered on the job.
