The Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) project will build a new 3 GeV synchrotron light source at the site of NSRRC. Refinement of the TPS control system design is on going. The control system is based on EPICS toolkits framework. Guidelines for hardware platform and operating system choice will be addressed. Various EPICS test bed has be setup to evaluate selected hardware and software components. The TPS control system will provide versatile environments for machine commissioning, operation, and accelerator research. The open architecture will facilitate machine upgrade, modification easily and minimize efforts for machine maintenance. Performance and reliability of the control system will be guaranteed from the initial design phase. Current efforts will be summary in this report.
