Improved gas plant safeguarding system

Murphy, Daniel (2013) Improved gas plant safeguarding system. Internship Report, Murdoch University.



Murdoch University and I&E Systems gave Daniel Murphy the opportunity to complete a 16 week
internship program, based in the Perth CBD, working on a major Australian gas plant safeguarding
system project. The internship offered the opportunity to participate in a number of tasks, assisting
a team of senior control system engineers to complete a long list of project deliverables.
This report details the tasks that were completed while working on the safety system project at I&E
Systems, and includes the following:

• Honeywell distributed control system point’s configuration using Microsoft Access databases
and Honeywell Native Windows software.

• Honeywell human machine interface graphics building and configuration using Honeywell
Graphical User Station software.

• Factory acceptance testing of the Honeywell distributed control system and Tricon
instrument protective system, using simulated inputs and outputs, Tristation software, and
the aforementioned software.

This provided the opportunity to develop both personally and professionally, and proved an
invaluable experience forging the path towards a control systems engineering career in the
resources industry.

The project’s client, the process plant location, and the plants owners and operators could not be
disclosed in this report for reasons of safety and intellectual property.
