TRAX can synchronize your simulator to match current plant processes and DCS logic and graphics. Depending on the state of the simulator, this may require an initial analysis phase to assess the differences between the simulator and plant. Once synchronization has been completed, we recommend that a continuous maintenance plan be implemented to keep your simulator up to date.
DCS Control System Changes
The accelerated pace of changes in DCS systems and the realities of obsolescence continue to drive owners to make wholesale change-outs of their original DCS systems.
Ideally, a DCS upgrade should include a parallel simulator upgrade, providing the added benefits of using the simulator for DCS logic checkout and startup training. This approach drives the fastest and safest after-outage startups, as a result of integrated testing and increased operator knowledge. Additionally, it protects the existing simulator investment, assuring the continuation of a relevant training program.
Advanced Simulator Services
As TRAX continues introducing new simulator-related products, options for improving your simulator’s effectiveness are growing.
For example the ProTRAX Teaching Assistant™ is a self-paced, instructional tool that provides effective power plant training through a virtual instructor, allowing use of the simulator even when an instructor is unavailable. Adding a product such as the ProTRAX Teaching Assistant™ to your simulator gives an entirely new dimension to training and maximizes potential uses of your simulator.
