With a protected simulation environment, users can test their control strategies and optimize processes. Honeywell’s Unified Simulation Environment allows the entire Experion® PKS system to be simulated to offer a range of benefits, including efficient control, lower operator training costs and improved plant performance. ​

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. ​

The Unified Simulation Environment executes multiple simulated controllers on a PC platform. For larger systems, multiple PCs can be used. The simulated controller developed on a simulation system executes the same control execution environment (CEE) as the physical controller, so the functionality is the same regardless of the environment.

Simulated control strategies can read from other on-process controllers through a restricted peer-to-peer communication architecture. This ensures that the simulation cannot influence the real process.

Since the simulation system environment is comparable to the real controller from its functionality and configuration capacity point of view, changes or additions to control strategies can be tested offline before implementation.

The Unified Simulation Environment provides a protected environment for users to test new or existing control strategies without influencing the real process. It guarantees that a configuration developed on a simulation system will fit the actual controller platform. In addition, it delivers cost savings by providing simulation capabilities without requiring dedicated controller hardware or process connections. It enables better training for operators since it uses the same control and operation interface as the real system.  ​

Training, maintenance and support are critical aspects to consider when choosing a technology partner. Honeywell offers world-class training through our Automation College, as well as comprehensive maintenance and support services designed to leverage your physical and intellectual assets and help you sustain and increase their value and performance over time.​
