3.2.2 software implementation:

Implementation of 3.4.1 configuration

The system interface is all Chinese.


It can dynamically monitor the current value of the process parameters of the compressor system and the working state of the technological process.

Can modify relevant parameters.

_can improve the self-diagnosis ability of the system, fault information is all processed in Chinese, and give warning display;


1) main screen:

All the analog parameters of the three units are monitored dynamically and real-time, so that the operator can master the operation status of all the units in the central control room.

Master picture

A) user login authority.

B) simultaneously displaying two engine, compressor operation parameters online.

C) record the engine running time.

D) record engine cumulative running time.


2), process gas flow monitoring screen:

Provide inquiring engine, compressor history trend curve and print out.

Through the Kingview, the operator can understand the operation status of the unit in the central control room.

The cause of the obstacle is to make the unit fault faster and more convenient.


3.2.2 human-machine realization

Through the MPI protocol and PLC communication, EasyBuilder 500 configuration software to set relevant parameters, and man-machine to achieve the following functions:

1) running state picture to monitor the running state of single machine.

Implementation of 3.2.3 network

Through the PROFIBUS-DP communication protocol, the S7-300 and Kingview are linked together to form a network, and the network is configured with Siemens STEP 7 V5.2+SP1 to realize a complete system. As a server, the industrial control computer is responsible for collecting data of all units, generating reports and historical curves, saving all data, and modifying the control and parameter settings of the units through PROFIBUS bus.


Four. Use effect analysis:

This system uses the mature and universal type of Siemens CPU and UNIMAT I / O module, good interchangeability, can reduce the number of spare parts, save costs. And make the whole system structure compact system circuit greatly simplified, high reliability, can greatly reduce the failure rate and maintenance costs.
