Decentralized control system introduction

The distributed control system is a new-generation instrument control system based on microprocessors, which adopts the control principle of decentralized control functions, centralized display operation, and autonomous and comprehensive coordination design principles. The distributed control system, referred to as DCS, can also be literally translated as "distributed control system" or "distributed computer control system."

It adopts the basic design idea of controlling the decentralization, operation and management concentration, and adopts the structure of multi-level hierarchical and cooperative autonomy. Its main feature is its centralized management and decentralized control. At present, DCS has been widely used in various industries such as power, metallurgy and petrochemical.
