Distributed Control Systems (DCS)
JK Controls has about 100 man
years of experience in industrial control systems, instrumentation and
process control system design and realization.
Most of this experience has been obtained in the power generation industry and steam
related industries. With the advance in technology over recent years this
knowledge has been extended to encompass distributed control systems from
As system integrators every project is
designed to our customer needs and is therefore unique. Consequently we
can only give examples of previous projects as a guide to our wide field of
experience and capability.
engineers have designed
the automatic control system for a major generating plant on behalf of a plant contractor.
Full advantage has been taken of the Distributed Control Systems technology to reduce operating staff
and improve the quality of control and the flexibility of the plant.
We have supported main
plant constructors by designing DCS based Burner Management Systems for oil, gas
and coal firing. We have taken on the
design, procurement and implementation of the whole C&I scheme for a power
station relocation to Malaysia. We have also provided remote
control of 400kV grid system switchgear using a SCADA
system and programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
For small systems we
make use of Human Machine Interface (HMI) equipment for use with programmable
logic controllers (PLC), for example, river level
control with active weirs for the Environment Agency and crash
test rig controls for a transport research company.
Interactive Demo of a SCADA Control System

realistic simple non-linear SCADA system. You can adjust the plant
conditions and controller settings and observe the responses in graphical form.
