The general functionality of the valve is to control the flow, in that it is either open and flowing or closed and not flowing. The MDISValveObjectType provides the information available for valves and provides access to control and management functionality in the valve. The following sequence diagrams indicate the intended subsea and DCS interface operational requirements and should be used in conjunction with the MDISValveObjectType generic properties. The final result described in the sequence diagram will be held until the next command is issued to the Valve, or until the state of the Valve changes (Fault or Interlock clears).
[Note: in most of the failure cases described below, the Method call should not have been made. But the error case is still described, since the Server still needs to be able to correctly handle the case where a Client sends an inappropriate command. Warning states do not affect commands.]
Sequence description; the above sequence details a successful execution of a command [Open or Close] from the DCS to SPCS in addition to intermediate state changes.
Sequence description; the above sequence details a successful execution of a command [Open or Close] with an interlock override active from the DCS to SPCS in addition to intermediate states changes. The Interlocks listed in the interlocks folder that are overridden are updated to reflect not interlocked.
Sequence description; the above sequence details the rejection to execute a command [open or close] owing to a non-defeatable interlock active status in the subsea system. The interlock is one reason a command may be rejected but there are others.
Sequence description; the above sequence details the rejection to execute a command [Open or Close] owing to the valve being disabled. The move Method may return successful or a failure depending on whether it knows if the valve is disabled.
Sequence description; the above sequence is a failure of a command. The value fault maybe the result of the lack of action from the valve for a period of time greater that the OpenTimeDuration, it could also be some other fault that is reported from the subsea system.
Sequence description; the above sequence details what the possible outcomes for moving a valve that has a fault set. The valve may immediately fault, may fault again after some time or the move may succeed. All outcomes are possible from a Client point of view. On some Servers only the last two may be possible.
Sequence description; the above sequence details the valve signature request of a valve during operation [open or close] from the subsea system level. The valve may also report Failed or Not Available.
Sequence description; the above sequence details the execution of a Shutdown command [Open or Close]. The intermediate acknowledgements and states as applicable are indicated. The Shutdown command will attempt to override all interlocks, including any non-defeatable interlock if possible
