The CCC Emulator software application enables you to emulate a full plant CCC control system with a single tool. Operators can execute the entire suite of CCC control applications in a Windows OS environment that allows for interfacing with third-party process simulation software. Supporting both the S5 Emulator and Prodigy Emulator subprograms, the CCC Emulator seamlessly emulates up to 16 instances of CCC Pro Built controllers.
For operations leveraging Series 3 or Series 4 controllers, CCC can create an equivalent S5 or Prodigy configuration to emulate platforms including S3++ and S4.
From reducing startup time to enabling more seamless training, the CCC Emulator was designed for the unique challenges of industrial operations.
Operating alongside third-party process simulation software, the CCC Emulator acts as a Multi-Purpose Dynamic Simulator (MPDS) for your turbomachinery controls system throughout the plant project lifecycle, from engineering studies through ongoing optimization. Its many lifestyle applications include:
During engineering studies, the CCC Emulator can evaluate control dynamics during a wide range of scenarios including turndown operations, sequencing of the machine, fast-transient upsets, and normal operations based on design conditions and gas composition. Organizations can utilize this emulator data to assess and optimize critical aspects of their turbomachinery controls strategy, including:
The CCC Emulator can interface with leading third-party process simulation software via OPC.
Standard interfaces such as links or connectors have been developed by many industrial process simulation software vendors. Although CCC may have been involved in providing technical information, guidance and validation for their interface development, these interfaces are owned and maintained by each third party company.
The partial list provided in the table below is for informational purposes and may not be up-to-date. We recommend that you contact the vendor directly during the proposal phase to verify the current state of the interface with the Prodigy Emulator or S5 Emulator.
