DiPP Process Automation & Control

Fast production of the consistent high-quality products requires an integrated process control and automation system.

The DiPP’s processes and units are controlled, monitored and optimised by state of the art distributed control system. This system enables students and researches to experiment and conduct high-quality research safely, pushing boundaries to meet industry needs.

DiPP’s process control system is a reliable, flexible and scalable automation platform that is easy to configure and can diagnose any plant issues quickly and efficiently.  It helps to teach and understand the basic and complex instruments and control schemes, safety systems, process integration, commissioning and shutdowns, and production costs of maintenance.

The DiPP benefits from a powerful simulation software executing real-time simulation and emulation for a complete automation program validation and training. DiPP’s control room is designed for teaching and research excellence at the University of Sheffield.
