Industrial plants require highly skilled operators to manage the reliability, productivity and safety of the many complex processes contained within these facilities. The challenge is that many operators do not have the experience or necessary training to deal with infrequent process upsets and abnormal situation management. Spartan’s Operator Training Systems (OTS) address key challenges, including:
- Managing experienced operator shortages
- Planning for highly-automated plants
- Removing risk, increasing safety
- Cost and ease of use
The DeltaV OTS provides operation personnel with an offline environment to test the operation of different control strategies using the same configuration and operator graphics as their online DeltaV system without the worry of affectingg the running process plant.
A major oil sands company has the challenge of providing panel operator training to their employees in an efficient manner.
DeltaV OTS systems replicate the online plant systems at the customer’s facility. OTS allows the instructor to initiate training scenarios within DeltaV to reproduce real-world plant process situations for students, making for an easier transition from training to the online plant.
