A FRAMEWORK FOR DISTRIBUTED AND INTELLIGENT PROCESS CONTROL

Qurban A. Memon

Abstract

The customized development of the Distributed Control System for process control in an environment of intelligent and tagged field devices etc., is the main focus of this work. The proposed solution consists of two-layer approach: use of decentralized intelligent agents at the local process level, and four-tier modular architecture at central controller level to help implement distributed intelligence. The design and development issues for such a customized design are investigated.
