Abstract:


This paper presents an idea of integration of simulations into the control system
architecture. The benefits of Advanced Process Control (APC) has been clearly shown in the
last years. Advanced control methods rely on quality models and simulations. These models
cannot be developed and operated without access to online and historical data. Integration
of simulators, data sources, optimizers and other tools is discussed in this paper. The whole
problem is divided into two main phases and the first one is presented here. This phase is design
oriented but it can be used for solving specific tasks. We illustrate the idea on the real world
example.
