The use of fieldbus architecture is quietly spreading into a wider variety of industries, even nuclear power plants. In a recent podcast, a group of plant engineer/operators talks to Bill Tatum, marketing manager, Fieldbus Foundation, and Control Engineering process industries editor, Peter Welander, about their experiences using fieldbus architecture in their plants.

  • Mike Miller and Ray Price of Duke Energy, Carolinas, discuss fieldbus upgrades to the Oconee Nuclear Station as part of its re-licensing. Oconee has generated more kWh than any other nuclear power plant in the U.S.

  • Herman Storey of Shell Global Solutions reflects on his experience as a long-time user, including discoveries of new uses.

  • John Rezabek of ISP Chemicals discusses practical benefits for day-to-day operation.
