Siemens Case Study: SPPA-T3000 Distributed Control System

A major consideration of new development projects for embedded applications is the selection of modern programming languages and tools and how they will function when real-time execution is a basic system requirement. This case study explores the system requirements and application functionality for the Siemens SPPA-T3000 Distributed Control System now deployed in thousands of power stations around the world and how the Java language was effectively used to build and run the system.

“Productivity and robustness determined our decision to use Java particularly for the implementation of the real-time automation controller. PTC Perc offers real-time performance and determinism without adding complexity.”
