An Example of a Configuration

A Configuration Example

The figure depicts the configuration of an underground railway environmental control system. The system has a central operation control centre and many railway stations. Each station has:

  • A local control processor (LCP) that allows operators to display and manipulate the air conditioning system and smoke extraction fans
  • A remote terminal unit (RTU) that performs the control function and
  • An integrated backup panel (IBP) that allows operators to take over manual control of the system.
