Extending ABB’s WirelessHART Tool
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Within this decade, wireless technology has been used in process control in various industries. WirelessHART is one of the standards, used for creating communication networks for such purpose. Since the technology is relatively new, there are many known and unknown risks in deploying it in real life applications.ABB’s WirelessHART Tool is used for generating simulation scenarios that can be used for evaluating the performance of WirelessHART networks under different conditions.This paper describes in detail, how ABB’s WirelessHART Tool was extended by adding various new functionalities. The topics cover what obstacles we have faced, which solutions were used and why, how our solutions were evaluated and the outcomes. Furthermore, the paper documents the application structure of WirelessHART Tool.
