The use of simulation for design and implementation of a pan station control system* [Full subscriber]

Abstract This paper looks at the real benefits of using a dynamic simulation in the design and implementation of a pan stage control system upgrade at Kalamia sugar mill in the 2016‑2017 maintenance period. This upgrade was necessary as the existing control system was isolated, aging and requiring significant changes to meet the requirements of a concurrent project to upgrade the batch C massecuite production pan. SimSci DYNSIM, a commercially available simulation package, was used in conjunction with Matrikon Control Performance Optimiser to model the pan station. This simulation was further configured to communicate with the new control system input…
