Though a DCS is the traditional choice for control systems in this industry, this session will demonstrate the key elements of a Modern PAC (Process Automation Controller) based solution as used in a combined cycle gas plant application. Attendees will learn about the essential functions and features required by such a system, and how configuration software, Historian, visualization and asset management as components of the process architecture are applied. In addition attendees will hear about some of the APC functions that help optimize a PAC based application. Also we shall discover the role of the network topology and the importance of cyber security considerations as applicable to this topic. At the end of this session attendees will gain a clearer understanding of the evolution of the PLC into what can now be applied with confidence to any industrial application
