This paper proposes an intelligent component based approach for batch control based on ANSI/ISA S88 standard. Common intelligent software components have been built and reused for different application. The components are managed in a control recipe that describes their execution schedule. Furthermore, IEC 61499 standard is adopted as an application framework in which the functional components are implemented as IEC 61499 based function blocks (FB). The operation schedule of the controlled components is then implemented according IEC 61499, based on Scheduler-Selector-Synchronizer (S³) architecture and SIPN models describing the sequence of control execution. An example of the proposed approach based on the real plant for Distillation of Sulphate Turpentine located in Velingrad, Bulgaria is presented and discussed.
