Event Details:
The design of a complex on-site power system presents unique challenges from both a documentation and PLC programming prospective. The typical narrative sequence of operation does not provide the necessary detail to ensure that all failure modes have been accounted for. This presentation will cover:
1. How to create a chart based sequence of operation that removes all ambiguity from the sequence of operation and ensures that all failure modes have been taken into account.
2. We will also look at how this chart is used to program and test the system.
3. We will also look at best practices for programming the PLC to ensure the system never gets lost and allows easy troubleshooting and changes.
4. Finally we will look at best practices for sequence testing the system.
