How many of your control loops sit in manual? How many loops have such low gains and long integral times that they are automatic in name only? Can an auto tuner give you the control loop performance you require? This course has been prepared to equip operators and engineers with the answers.
In our experience, the teaching of control theory does not adequately explain the concept of process dynamics and hence many don’t understand how to match the loop tuning with the actual process dynamics. This program aims to provide an understanding of dynamics and tuning through practical exercise.
Full payment for courses up to $1,500 must be made before the commencement of the course unless the Payment Plan option is selected. For courses that cost over $1,500, Site Skills Training will hold an initial deposit of $1,500. The balance of fees payable will be charged at a point in the course that is proportionate to the amount of the deposit paid, e.g. a 10-day course costing $3,000, the remaining $1,500 will be charged at the end of day 5 (upon completion of 50% of the course).
A Payment Plan option is available for this course, please visit the Payment Plans Page for more information.
Payment for this course can be made via eftpos, cash, cheque or the Payment Plan option above. For billing information including who to write a cheque to, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300 700 080.

Upon Successful completion of Control Loop Tuning, participants will receive a Statement of Completion.
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 dynamics of feedback control, each participant will be introduced to the application of dynamics and tuning to cascade and feed-forward control.
