Engineers learn theory and operators learn from experience, but how do we ensure both theory and experience are combined to full advantage?
Our experience of trouble shooting operational problems and training operators leads us to believe that the time is not always taken to familiarise operators with the fundamentals of science, process control and their application to day to day operations. This course has been prepared to give a practical understanding of process engineering in the real world, combined with modern control systems and the pursuit of optimum performance. It is an intensive course which relies heavily on the use of many computer simulation practical examples to explore engineering fundamentals, control and optimisation.
Upon Successful completion of Process Engineering for Operations, participants will receive a Statement of Completion.
As with all our courses we teach fundamentals enabling the delegate to understand the basic principles of operation, not theoretically as in a technical education, but practically from a real world operational point of view.
Most importantly the participants will understand enough physics and chemistry to understand fluid flow, heat transfer, mass transfer and process control. They will also understand how control regulates the performance of a unit operation, and the fundamentals of each unit operation.
From an understanding of the physics, delegates will understand phenomena such as centrifugal compressor surge, pump cavitation and the difference between feedback and feedforward control.This thorough understanding will then equip the delegate to appreciate common operating problems, their causes and their solutions.
