Distributed Control System (DCS)

A system that responds to input signals from the equipment under control and/or from an operator and generates output signals that cause the equipment under control to operate in the desired manner. It gathers process data, generates alarms, and provides a structured view of a facility system with the capability to control the operation.

aeSolutions helps the client's process engineers take advantage of the multivariable control capabilities found in the latest generation of DCS systems. These offer real time performance with multivariable models available at the controller's function library level.
