Objectives and Approach

The objective of this project is to:

The sensors and actuators will address a range of functions, eg pressure, flow, temperature, and on-off valves, applicable to a broad range of industrial applications, ie power generation and distribution, chemical processes, the iron and steel industry, etc.

The work on a CMMS will focus on the lowest level in order to provide a consistent real-time database of the process instrumentation. Such a database will:

The specifications and implementations will be validated in three types of real process environment: thermal and nuclear power stations and a chemical plant.

Exploitation

The increasing emphasis within the power and chemical industries on reliability, safety, economy of operation, and protection of the environment is creating a large market for instrumentation and control systems of increasing sophistication, including the retrofitting of existing installations. The products arising from the industrialisation of the project results are expected to enjoy widespread application.

It is expected that the project results will pave the way for an appropriate definition of new international standards of European origin in the field of intelligent actuators and sensors.
