Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference articleScientific


The use of simulation aids in the automation of industrial processes is not a new idea. Simulation facilitates the realization of engineering activities related with the installation and the optimization of those control systems in real plants. Nowadays the use of simulation aids is a simpler issue because of the characteristics of current process control systems and current commercial process simulation tools. It will be easier in a near future, when the majority of the control system s will be more based on the use of software controllers. This paper has two main objectives; first a study of the state of the art of simulation for process control and second a research on the use of simulators for automation testing due to the fact that this issue is one of the main objectives of the Sim-Serv community.
