    Hi Abdul,

    I am far from a control logic expert, butI can think of a few, non-technical explanations for the possible observations you are making. As such, I am leery of making any hypothesis.

    That said, I think we can assist you by resolving your other post about the system ID and gaining access to the Ovation Users' Group website. Once we connect you with the Emerson contact for your plant, that contact should be able to clarify the specifics of your system. Further, the Ovation Users' Group website will give you access to the broader Ovation community, and can help answer some of your questions.

    Best regards,
