Dynsim Gives Medium-Fidelity Simulation Solution

Invensys Operations Management has announced the availability of its Simsci-Esscor medium-fidelity simulation solution, Dynsim Checkout. Available as part of the Dynsim 4.5 software release, the solution provides the industry with a way to quickly identify, validate and resolve control- and safety-application design errors throughout the project life cycle, while addressing plant-operator process-familiarisation needs and clearing obstacles such as late-arriving design information.

Medium-fidelity simulation provides a library of unit-operation models (valves, pumps, conveyers, reactors) similar to high-fidelity models, but requires far fewer engineering hours and less specialised expertise to configure and tune. The models can be auto-generated using plant life-cycle management software that features intelligent piping and instrumentation diagrams (PandID), shortening the time it takes to construct the model.

The Simsci-Esscor medium-fidelity simulation solution also requires less design data to complete the model, with PandID and process flow diagrams being the key required information. By providing this simulation facility the early stages of the project, potential control and safety-application design errors, omissions and changes can be captured before construction, resulting in higher quality for the automation system, as well as significantly reduced client risk at the plant startup and commissioning phases.

Medium-fidelity models, while less complicated than high-fidelity, are also suitable for operator familiarisation training, allowing operators to learn procedures 'live' on the new control platform and to attain a level of knowledge that was previously impossible at such an early stage in the project. These models can be efficiently rebuilt many times throughout the life of the project and can therefore remain current with the latest control and safety designs.
