I am new in power generation industry. In our plant we are using DCS Ovation 3.3.1. I have a confusion about the DCS terms load and download. Will i load or download to controller if i create a new point in DCS? In which cases we load and download performed?
With the Ovation system most often you will be "Loading" the controller. A load is required when points or logic are added or modified.
A download to the controller is only typically needed when the controller is "Cleared", if flash cards are being replaced, or if some new type of I/O device or communication driver is being installed.
Hope this helps.
