Process and Automation

Proper process control is vital to any industry. If your control is not done optimally, not only may you affect the safety of your operation, but also your efficiency and profitability. In this respect, very careful attention must be paid to the PID controller. These devices are used to control a host of different applications, and their optimization cannot be emphasized, enough! They are often incorporated into the Distributed Control System (DCS).

Course Overview

This training course takes over, where basic instrumentation courses end off. It assumes that the delegates already understand measuring devices for level, temperature, pressure and flow, HMI basics, PLC basics, etc. It really focuses on process control in greater depth, which is pertinent to PID controllers, progressing from basics right up to advanced options. The workshop is presented in a manner that is easy to understand, and then to apply. It is vital that everyone, who is involved in PID controllers and loop tuning, are taught the fundamentals and techniques as thoroughly as possible.

What you’ll learn

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Decide on the best type of control to implement, using a PID controller
  • Understand all of the terminology that may be encountered, using PID controllers
  • Implement various open-loop tuning strategies with a PID controller
  • Implement various closed-loop tuning strategies with a PID controller
  • Implement strategies, which include Cascade, Ratio, Gain Scheduling, etc., using PID controllers
  • Implement assorted model-based loop tuning solutions

Candidates must;

  • Be proficient in English Language
  • Have access to either a computer or smartphone with Internet Connectivity
  • Be equipped with quality webcam and headphones
