Operator Training

Plant models in AVEVA Dynamic Simulation are the core of AVEVA Operator Training Simulators (OTS) for any industry – from Food & Beverage to Upstream Oil & Gas. Over 1200 plants worldwide have used custom or generic dynamic models combined with control system emulators in OTS to perform control system checkout, develop and test first time startup procedures, train new operators and improve operator performance.

high fidelity plant models

High Fidelity Plant Models

The high-fidelity dynamic simulation plant model reflects the operations and control responses of the actual plant. AVEVA Dynamic Simulation’s first principles models, including rigorous thermodynamic and fluid flow calculations, bring a superior level of robustness and accuracy to dynamic process simulation at your plant.

connect with dcs and plc control systems

Connect with DCS and PLC Control Systems

Modern, open software standards interface with other important plant applications, such as DCS and PLC control system emulators, to drive operator training systems with a rigorous simulation foundation. AVEVA Dynamic Simulation provides an open API to connect any third-party simulation system.

cloud access and flexible licensing

Cloud Access and Flexible Licensing

AVEVA Connect makes AVEVA Dynamic Simulation fully scalable and accessible from anywhere. Cloud OTS enables widespread use of dynamic, high-fidelity simulation models.

Full development licenses allow simulator customization. Runtime licenses provide the full power of the operating model but restrict modification of the simulation database that defines it. This reduces the deployment cost of OTS.
