SPEE 022 : Distributed Control Systems

SPEE 022 : Distributed Control Systems

  • course description:

    The focus of this course is to introduce the participants to Distributed Control Systems (DCS), their architectures and design process. The course investigates the different elements involved with DCS systems from ergonomic design considerations to communication protocols and system reporting. In addition, the course sheds light on alarm system management in DCS and related issues. The course also investigates typical DCS applications, discusses practical related issues, and compares between various DCS vendors.
