Course Description

 Instrumentation can be viewed as the eyes and the ears of the operator in the modern plant. They are there to collect information, and to assist the operator in analyzing current plant conditions. The operator is then better equipped to make the necessary decisions, pertaining to better control of the plant. Of course, not all of the control decisions falling to the domain of the instrumentation technicians and    plant operator. Many processes are automated. In the past, excellent analogue equipment was available to do the control function. In the current digital world, modern control systems have come to the fore. These include model-based control equipment.This training course combines all of this, into one powerful, high impact, week of learning. It then delves into final control elements (many of them adjustable). This is followed by important aspects of pressure, level, temperature and flow. Participants attending this training course will develop the following competencies:

  • Be able to work with and convert modern instrumentation signals
  • Effective tuning of most modern control loops
  • Implement a model-based control system
  • Effectively deal calibrating tools and equipments
  • Tank gauging system 
 

Course Objectives

  • Define the role and objectives of instrumentation in any plant
  • Understand the importance of process variables, in process control
  • Develop their skills in selecting the right transmitter for an application
  • Improve their skills process control strategies 
  • Correctly implement loop tuning and calibration skills
  • Reducing calibration mistakes.
