  8. 8. CONTROL SYSTEMS TREND1) PLC2) DCS3) PC - Based Control.• PLC : Introduced in the late 1960 to replace Relays and Hard-wired Programming.
  9. 9. DCS : Introduced in the Mid-1970 toreplace pneumatic controls by usingcomputers.• PC-Based Control : Introduced by the early 1980s to avoid the proprietary PLC & DCS systems.
  10. 10. DCS EVOLUTION• LOCAL CONTROL : Initially control was performed local to the equipment control. The ADVANTAGE was low wiring costs .DISADVANTAGES were - not much control, monitoring, alarming & history.• CENTRALISED CONTROL: With the advent of minicomputer, sensors and actuators were into the Central Control (Computer).• DISTRIBUTED CONTROL: With the advent of microcomputer, Distributed control systems were installed in the plants near to the control room via proprietary digital communications lines called as Data Hiway. First DCS was developed by Honeywell,U.S in 1975. The ADVANTAGES were greatly reduced wiring costs, much more limited failure and less cost to add more points. The DISADVANTAGES were that wiring costs were that wiring costs were still significant and there was lack of interoperability among controllers of various manufacturers due to the proprietary protocols. Hence the user was locked into a single vendor.

  28. 28. Communication Subsystem Local Control Network (LCN) The backbone of every TPS system is a communication network, known as Local Control Network. The LCN is a LAN through which TDC 3000 modulescommunicate with each other. The LCN is a broadcast type of LAN. It is high speed redundant communication bus that connect all the control room equipment. All information is transferred on the network at 5 million bits per sec.,serially. It is based on the IEEE 802.4 Token passing and Bus Standard. Each LCN device that is connected to the Local Control Network is called a module. Up to 64 modules may be connected to the Local Control Network in a TPS system. The Local Control Network is designated as the primary and the other as the back
  29. 29. Communication Subsystem Universal Control Network (UCN) The Universal Control Network is a high speed, high security processcontrol network based on open system interconnection standards. It features a 5megabit/second, carrier band, token bus network compatible with IEEE and ISOstandards. It is used as the real time redundant Communications backbone forprocess connected devices such as the High Performance Process Manager(HPM), Advanced Process Manager . The UCN supports peer-to-peercommunication for sharing data and allowing greater co-ordination of controlstrategies among network devices. The UCN uses redundant co-axial cables and cansupport up to 32 redundant devices UCN supports 2 types of devices

  64. 64. History of Process Control Signal Around 50 years ago, most plant used 3-15psi pneumatic signal to control their process. The last change change in signal standard was the open protocol HART digital communications format. The HART protocol provides simultaneous digital communications with the 4-20 mA output. The next protocol change will be fieldbus. Fieldbus is entirely digital-there is no analogSignal. Fieldbus also allows migration of control functions to field devices. Process control Timeline – The Evolution of Signal Standard Signal standards have evolved over the years, starting with the 3-15 psi standard. There are also other communication methods, but they have not gained widespread Digital: Fieldbus acceptance. Digital plus Analog: HART with 4-20mA With many standard there is typically a slow transition period as plant Analog: 4-20mA engineers and Pneumatic: 3-15 psi managers test period does gain widespread acceptance. However, once the benefits of the 1940 1950 1960 1970 1980 1990 2000 2010 Fieldbus become tested and proven, more plant will install Fieldbus because of its

  67. 67. Fieldbus ArchitectureFieldbus is more than just a new signal communications protocol, but a whole new way to control the process. With the release of the low fieldbus (H1), the entire fieldbus will be defined. Most of the recent published literature has focused on the intricate details of the fieldbus architecture, especially those layers that have not been released. However, except Maintenance Workstation information physical layer and the user layer, these layer are transparent to the engineers and the system manager. User Layer System management Network Management Application Layer stack Data Layer Physical Layer Multivariable Valve Level Pump Transmitter Transmitter
  68. 68. Open System Interconnected Reference Model MBAP, SMB, FTP, SMTP, FMS, Physical – Provides the standard for transmitting rawApplication electrical signals over the communication channels. IEC 61158, ANSI/ISA S50.2,IEEE 1451Presentation Data link – Contains the rule for interpreting electrical signals as data, error checking and physical addressing Session Network – Describes the rule for routing messages Transport TCP, SPX, UDP through a complex network and deals with congestion. Transport – Establishes a dependable end-to-end Network IP, IPX, NetBeui connection between two host. HDLC, ETHERNET, ANSI/ISA S50.02 Session – provides Management and Synchronization Data link of complex data transaction. Physical EIA-485, ETHERNET,ANSI/ISA S50.02 Presentation – Establishes protocol for data format conversion, encryption and security. Application – Contains protocol that accomplish task such as e-mail, file transfer or reading a set of registers from a PLC. For the purpose of Process control, the top and bottom four layers are used. Layers 5 and 6 are important to large commercial networks.
  69. 69. Field BusField Bus is a bi-directional digital communication that interconnects smart field devices to control system or to instrument located in the control room.Field Bus is based on the OSI (Open System Interconnect), which was developed by the ISO(International Standard Organization) to represent the various functions required in any Layer FunctionCommunication network. 7 Application Provides formatted data 6 Presentation Converts data 5 Session Handles the dialogue 4 Transport Secures the transport connection 3 Network Establishes network connections 2 Link Establishes the data link connection 1 Physical Connects the equipment
  70. 70. Field Bus The OSI model consists of seven layers. However for real time application layers 3 to 6 are not considered since they deal with transference of data among networks. For such application following layers are used:• LAYER 1 - PHYSICAL LAYER Defines the type of signal, transmitting medium, data transmission speed, etc.• LAYER 2 – DATALINK LAYER Define the interface between the physical layer and the application layer. It establishes how the messages shall be structured and normalizes the use of multiple masters.• LAYER 3 – APPLICATION LAYER Defines howwas invented by an Indian engineer Mr. Ramrepresentation. The Fieldbus data is specified, its addresses and its Ramchandran ( M.S in Comp. Tech , Texas)
  71. 71. PHYSICAL LAYERThe Physical layer defines the medium that transport the messages frames, the signal shape and amplitude limits, data transfer rate, and power distribution.Technical Characteristics:Physical Medium Three types are defined: wires, optic fiber, and radio signals. The specification for wire has been already approved.Bit rate for wire media 31.25 Kbps (H1) 1 megabits and 2.5 megabits (H2). H1 and H2 are classification of the two hanks of Field Bus target applications. H1 has low speed and utilizes existing wires. H2 has high speed and may require independent wires to power up field devices.Number of devices per link (31.25Kbps) 2 to 32 devices, without power and no IS (intrinsic safety). 2 to 6 with power and IS.Maximum distance Up to 1900 meters for 31.25Kbps, without repeaters. Up to 750 meters for 1 megabits. Up to 500 meter for 2.5 megabits.
  72. 72. PHYSICAL LAYERSignal Modulation Manchester bi phase L synchronous.Physical layer preamble on transmissions, the physical layer will add to the data sent by the layer above a preamble and one start delimiter in the beginning of the frame and one end delimiter at the end delimiter at the end of the of the frame.
  73. 73. DATA LINK LAYERThe Data Link Layer will assure the integrity of the message by using the frame check sequence:Two bytes added to the frames and a polynomial calculation of all frame data.The Data Link Layer also checks to see that the data reaches the devices correctly.Technical characteristicsMedium Access: There are three forms to access the network:• Token passing: Token is the right to initiate a transaction on the bus. A device must have the token to initiate a conversation. As soon it finishes it will return the token to the LAS (Link Active Scheduler). The LAS send the token to the unit that requested in either in a pre-configured way or via scheduling.• Immediate response: A master station will give an opportunity to the station to reply with one frame.• Requested token: a device request a token by using a code in any of the response sent to the bus.

  74. 74. APPLICATION LAYER AND MANAGEMENTThe Application Layer provides a simple interface to the end user’s application. Basically , it defines how to read, write , interpret and execute a message or command. A big part of this job is to define the message syntax. The contents include the requested message, action taken, and the response message.The management defines how to initialize the network : tag assignment, address assignment,clock assignment, clock synchronization, distributed application scheduling across the networkor association of the input and output parameters of the function blocks. It also controls theoperation of the network with statistic of faults and detection of the addition of the new elementor the absence of a station. The system always look for the new stations on the bus by pollingthe possible station addresses.

  76. 76. HART COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLWhy HART protocol ? 4-20 ma is tried, tested and widely used standard but only limited amount of information is sent by a 4-20 ma signal. HART (Hiway Addressable Remote Transducer) protocol enhances these operations by transmitting digital data along with the 4-20 ma signal – without interfering with it ! HART permits two-way communications. It also has all digital mode that allows instrument to be connected to a single cable, cutting installation costs dramatically.Features : 1. Field proven concept that is easy to understand and use. 2. Compatible with existing 4-20 ma systems. 3. Simultaneous point-to-point 4-20 ma and digital communication. 4. Alternative multi-drop mode. 5. Measured variables, tag no. , range and span settings, device information, diagnostics and simple messages transmitted. 6. Digital response time of 500 msec; burst mode response of 300 msec. 7. Open architecture; freely available to any vendor and every user.
  77. 77. HART COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLMethod of Operation : The Hart protocol operates using the FSK principal. The digital data is made up from two frequencies –1200 Hz and 2200 Hz representing bits 1 and 0 respectively. Sinusoidal waves of these frequencies are superimposed on the DC analog signal cables to give simultaneous analog and digital communicationsHART Protocol Structure : HART follows the basic Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model, developed by the International Organization for Standard (ISO). The HART protocol uses a reduced OSI model, implementing only layers 1,2 and 7

  79. 79. HART PROTOCOL LAYERSLayer 1, the physical layer, operates on the FSK principle Data transfer rate: 1200 bit/s Logic “0” frequency: 2200 Hz Logic “1” frequency: 1200 Hz the vast majority of existing wiring is used for this type of digital communication.Layer 2, the link layer establishes the format for a hart message. HART is a master/slave protocol. the structure of these messages is given below: Preambl SD AD CD BC Statu Dat Parity e s a SD – start character. AD – display terminal and field addresses. CD – HART instruction. BC – Byte count. Status – Field device and communication status (only from field device to master) The individual characters are : 1 start bit, 8 data bits, 1 bit for odd parity and 1
  80. 80. HART PROTOCOL LAYERSLayer 7, the application layer, brings the HART instruction into play. The master sends messages with requests for specified values, actual values and any other data or parameters available from the device. The field device interprets these instruction as defined in theHART protocol. The response message provides the master with the status information and data from the slave.For slave devices, logical uniform communication is provided by the following command sets: Universal commands – understood by all field devices. Common practice commands – provide functions which can be carried out by many, though not all, field devices. Drive-specific commands – provide functions which are restricted to an individual
  81. 81. HART PROTOCOL – TECHNICAL DATADATA TRANSMISSION Types of data transmission : Frequency shift keying (FSK) Transfer rate : 1200 bit/s. ‘0’ bit information frequency : 2200 Hz ‘1’ bit information frequency : 1200 Hz Signal structure : 1 start bit, 8 data bits, 1 bit for odd parity, 1 stop bit. Transfer rate for simple variables : Approximately 2/s (poll/response)DATA INTEGRITY Physical layer : Error rate destination circuit : 1/(10^5) Link layer : Recognizes : all groups up to 3 corrupt bits and practically all longer and multiple groups. Application layer : Communication status terminated in a response message.
  82. 82. MODBUS The MODBUS protocol describes an industrial communication and distributedcontrol system developed by Gould-Modicon. MODBUS is a Master/Slavecommunications protocol, whereby one device (Master), controls all serial activities byselectively polling one or more slave devices. The protocol provides for one master deviceand up to 247 slave devices on a common line. Each device is assigned an address todistinguish it from all other connected device. Only a master initiates a transaction. Transactions are either a query/response type,or a broadcast/no-response type. A transaction comprises a single query and singleresponse frame or a single broadcast frame. Certain characteristic of a MODBUS protocol are fixed such as frame format, framesequences, handling of communication errors and exception conditions, and the functionsperformed.
  83. 83. RS-232 Communication RS-232 is an asynchronous communication network. Normally, a binary system isused to transmit data in ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange)format. This code translates human readable code (letter/numbers) into “computer readable”code(1’s and 0’s). There are 2 types of RS-232 devices. The first is called a DTE (Data TerminalEquipment) device and a common example is a computer. The other type of device is calledDCE (Data Communication Equipment) device and a common example is a modem. In RS-232 the first thing a terminal send is start bit. This start bit is a synchronizingbit added just before each character being send. The last thing send is a stop bit. This stop bitinforms to the receiving terminal that the last character has just being send.
  84. 84. RS-232 CommunicationRS-232 communication is done through Serial port which usually has a 9-pin configuration. The pin and their purposes are shown below. 9-PIN PURPOSE 1 Frame ground 2 Receive data (RD) 3 Transmit data (TD) 4 Data terminal ready (DTR) 5 Signal ground (GND) 6 Data set ready (DSR) 7 Request to send (RTS) 8 Clear to Send (CTS) 9 Ring indicator (RI) *only for modems*

The MS technology allows any developer to produce small, self contain objects that have “packaged” visual component and specific action. These components are called “ActiveX” objects. NT’s OLE technology is part of Microsoft’s Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) operating across networks. Anyone can develop ActiveX Object using VC++ or even VB on a PC. For special needs of the process control industries DCOM and OLE are not secure, deterministic and robust enough.
  97. 97. Ethernet Ethernet was originally designed by Digital, Intel and Xerox (DIX) in the early 1970’sand has been designed as a broadcast system. The original format for Ethernet was developedin Xerox Palo Alto Research center (PARC), California in 1972. The two inventors wereRobert Metcalf and David Boggs. Ethernet version 1.0 and 2.0 followed until the IEEE 802.3 committee re- jigged theEthernet II packet to form the Ethernet 802.3 packet. Nowadays you will see eitherEthernet II (DIX) format or Ethernet 802.3 format being used. The ‘Ether’ part of Ethernet denotes that the system is not meant to be restricted only toone medium type, copper cables, fiber cables and even radio waves can be used. Briefly, stated Ethernet what is referred to as the Physical layer and the Data- link layersprotocols. The physical layer defines the cable types, connectors and electrical characteristics.The Data link layer defines the format an Ethernet frames, the error checking method and the
  98. 98. Ethernet10Base5 Traditionally, Ethernet is used over ‘thick’ coaxial cable called 10Base5 ( the 10denotes 10 Mbps, base means that the signal is baseband i.e, takes the whole bandwidthof the cable, 5 denotes 500m maximum length ). The minimum length between stationsis 2.5m. The cable is run in one long length forming a ‘Bus Topology’. The segments areterminated by 50 ohm resistor and the shield should be grounded at one end only.10Base2 Thin Ethernet (Thinnet) uses RG-58 cable and is called 10Base2 (the 2 denotes200 mtr maximum length cable). Each station connects to the Thinnet by way of
  99. 99. Ethernet10BaseT Nowadays, it is becoming increasingly important to use Ethernet across UnshieldedTwisted Pair (UTP) or Shielded Twisted Pair (STP), this being called 10BaseT (the Tdenotes twisted pair). UTP is installed in star wire format and Ethernet Hubs with UTP ports(RJ45) centrally located. Also there should be no more than a 11.5db signal loss and theminimum distance between devices is 2.5 meters. The advantages of the UTP/STP technology are gained from the flexibility of thesystem, with respect to moves, changes, fault finding, reliability and security.10BaseF 10BaseF standard developed by IEEE 802.3 committee defines the use of Fiber for Ethernet. 10BaseFB allows up to 2 Km per segment and is defined for Backbone

Ethernet works on the CSMA/CD technology but wireless LAN has difficulty of detectingcollision in Radio frequency. Therefore they are using CSMA/CA (Collision Sense MultipleAccess / Collision Avoidance) technology to transmit data. Physical Layer is either Photonic orRadio frequency.
  104. 104. Process control Software characteristics The most important feature of process control system is that it needs to be reliable. Theprocess control system used has to be completely crash-proof and any changes in thesystem need to be made on-line. The process control needs to be made real time, which means that it can update the I/Odata table and process the control program in the time required by the process. A process control system that is deterministic refers to whether the operating systemallows the highest priority task to work without interruption from task with lower priority. Software offerings in the automation and the process control fields must be versatile andopen enough to address the needs of different applications. Finally the chosen solution must deliver tangible, quantifiable values such as :1. Reducing project implementation time and cost.2. Improving time-to-market.3. Achieving higher production and quality.4. Cutting maintenance and training cost.
  105. 105. PC-based control system features Unlike the other systems, PCs provide a more open architecture making them ideal for improving, optimizing and integrating the overall automation process, as well as conducting control task. In addition PCs offer the following features :• Lower cost.• Ease of use.• Graphical user interface.• Easy integration of logic, motion and process control.• Simplified application development.• Software portability• Independence from proprietary control system. Using PCs enable the following functions,• Millisecond time stamping which is essential to utilities.• Real time control.• Sequence of events.• Alarming.• Data collection.
