This course has been prepared to meet the specific requirements of engineers, control room operators and instrument specialists who together, need to gain confidence and competence in control.
In our experience, the teaching of control theory does not adequately explain the concept of process dynamics and hence many people have been introduced to control theory but don’t understand how to match the appropriate techniques with the actual process dynamics. This program aims to provide understanding of process control as opposed to familiarisation with control, through practical exercise.
Upon successful completion of this course, a Statement of Completion will be issued.
The candidate will be able to explain the role of each element of a typical control system’ describe the objectives of plant control and how to get the desired response by the use of a range of control options.
Delegates will understand each PID controller term and the pros and cons of derivative action. Furthermore they will be able to tune pressure, level, flow and temperature loops.
Having thoroughly understood the basics of control, each participant will be introduced to our concept of the ‘control toolkit’ such that they understand and can apply the appropriate control technique to different control requirements.
