Backup Control Center Definition


The backup control center is a redundant control system that mirrors the primary control center system. The backup control center provides parallel or redundant communications with the remote IO areas and allows a complete transfer of control from the primary control system to the backup system in the event of emergency or planned operations without losing emergency operational control and monitoring capability for the associated process systems.
