Our Philosophy

Our philosophy has been used to implement effective process control systems which distribute the control functions in a hierarchical structure. The basic regulatory controls serve as the foundation of the system. Their ability to work in an automatic mode is not dependent in any way upon the condition of any advanced or higher-level control. Advanced regulatory control functions assist the operator by responding to changes in feedstocks or operating conditions. These controls attain their objectives by resetting appropriate parameters in corresponding basic regulatory controls. Supervisory control functions normally reset parameters in corresponding advanced regulatory controls.
