In addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the Distributed Control Systems Market Research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows. Strategic Issue for Users: Become Involved in the Open Process Automation Forum (OPAF). William Bolton, in Instrumentation and Control Systems (Second Edition), Distributed Control Systems. A distributed control system (DCS) is used to control production systems within the same geographic location. It usually involves a computer that communicates with control elements distributed throughout the plant or process, e.g. machine or process controllers and PLCs, through .

The Evolution of a Distributed Control System Figure 1: Flow of data processed by FCS For the past 35 years, developments of a Distributed Control System (DCS) have been evolving to raise productivity and enhance plant operation. The market for distributed control systems (DCS) is growing, thanks to service opportunities from existing installations as well as expansion in developing regions. Industrial development linked to the shale gas revolution in North America and the need for energy security in Asia-Pacific and Latin America are expected to further boost demand.   Here is some best books for learning DCS s Control- Instrument Engineers Handbook by Bela G. Liptak, Chilton book co. 2. Overview of Industrial Process Automation by KLS Sharma, Elsevier pub. 3. Practical Distributed Control Systems (DCS). A distributed control system (DCS) is a computerised control system for a process or plant usually with many control loops, in which autonomous controllers are distributed throughout the system, but there is no central operator supervisory is in contrast to systems that use centralized controllers; either discrete controllers located at a central control room or within a central.

A distributed control system (DCS) is a specially designed automated control system that consists of geographically distributed control elements over the plant or control area. It differs from the centralized control system wherein a single controller at central location handles the control function, but in DCS each process element or machine.
