IndissPlus Simulation Software

Introducing IndissPlus

indissplus_logo

IndissPlus (INDISS PLUS®) is the latest generation dynamic simulation platform developed by RSI. Based on First Principles of Chemical Engineering, IndissPlus models accurately match process behavior at normal operations or during transient periods, whether the models are part of a dynamic study or incorporated into an Operator Training Simulator (OTS) solution.

Thermodynamics Packages

The application has a rich library of Thermodynamics Packages, Pure Components, and Unit Operation Modules.  However, if 3rd party proprietary components, thermodynamics packages or chemical reactor models are required they can be seamlessly integrated within the IndissPlus platform, by taking advantage of the multi-layer component architecture.

Process Diagram Builder

IndissPlus incorporates a Process Diagram Builder (based on Microsoft .NET Framework) to enable users to interactively build their flowsheets using the menus, dropdowns or drag and drop capabilities.

Unit Operation Faceplates

Unit Operation detail can easily be specified through each Unit Operation’s Faceplate by filling in the appropriate information in the form of a datasheet.

Revamped software architecture

As a result of the revamped software architecture, enhancements available in IndissPlus are:

  • The look and feel of the user interface that follows the ribbon toolbar look introduced by Microsoft with the Office Productivity Suite.  It is incorporated in the IndissPlus Model Builder, Instructor, and Field Operator HMI’s.

Enhanced User Interface with IndissPlus

 

  • 64-bit software architecture to take better advantage of memory-addressing when running on Microsoft 64-bit Operating Systems.
  • Advanced multi-thread execution capability. This will enhance the capability for parallel processing on future PC computer chips and hardware.

Advanced Trending and Historization capability with IndissPlus
  • Web-based capability to allow for remote server operation of simulations via thin clients over Intranets and the Internet for Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Enhanced Open Environment for easier integration to 3rd party packages such as CAPE-OPEN.
  • New, tightly integrated OPC interface to OLGA multi-phase pipeline simulation.
  • Revamped and new DCS operator console emulations.

Instructor Viewer Console

From the IndissPlus Viewer Console, the Instructor can call up displays, load models, insert malfunctions, and perform other tasks during a training session.  The interface is based on plant and simulator specific graphic displays.  Through these displays, the User can monitor the status of the models and directly control selected malfunctions.  The Instructor will also use the instructor station to work on predefined scenarios and exercises for trainee evaluation. Scenarios are called ATE for Automatic Training exercise and evaluation is done using TPM for Trainee Performance Monitor.

The IndissPlus OTS can be easily deployed on the intranet network and connected to centralized training management system LMS (SCORM is used to connect to the Learning Management System).

Lifecycle modeling

IndissPlus was developed with the future of simulation in mind. Within the same IndissPlus environment a model can be developed and progressed throughout the full project lifecycle : design, training, commissioning and start-up, and real-time on-line support during operation.
