Process control systems (PCS) are systems with control loops and continuous state dynamic variables such as pressure, temperature, and liquid level. Existing computer-assisted failure modeling schemes for PCS are based on a static description of system operation (eg, by digraphs, signal-flow-based graphs). This paper presents a dynamic approach to the failure modeling of PCS. The givens for the methodology are: 1) a set of first order differential equations with feedback describing the… CONTINUE READING
