Design Architecture of Custom Configurable Process Automation System for Small Scale Industries

R. Sindhu, Anish Sathyan, and Vijaya Bhaskara Rao

Abstract—Process control systems deals with architectures, mechanisms, and algorithms for monitoring and controlling the intake and output of a specific process. Automation has had a notable impact in wide range of industries beyond manufacturing. Limited access to financial and technical resources is the major barrier in adopting advanced process control technologies in small scale industries. This paper describes the design aspects of Industrial System Monitoring Autonomous Remote Terminal (iSMART): Multi Loop Controller designed and developed by CDAC. The iSMART is equipped with modern data acquisition facilities, new generation control algorithms, and next generation communication interfaces. Custom configurable system provides freedom for the end users to selectively choose the most appropriate module for their application. iSMART could be used for the real-time implementation of feed forward or cascade control schemes, self-tuning or adaptive algorithms or optimization strategies. The iSMART is designed in such a way that it competes with the products of pioneers in automation in terms of the salient features and tops the above with respect to cost-effectiveness. The developed module provides a progressive path of adaptive migration to tomorrow’s advanced Automation Systems Technology especially for small scale industries

Index Terms—iSMART, real time operating system, scada, freertos, configurator, human machine interface
