Techniques for Applied Process Control 2016-10-19T14:30:10+00:00

A detailed course on PID-based control that provides practitioners techniques for success in industry.

The PID controller is the most pervasive technology applied in the control of complex industrial production processes.  In spite of its extensive commercial use the PID controller is poorly understood by the majority of industry practitioners.  Limited knowledge of process dynamics and of proven methods for calculating both model and tuning parameters places unnecessary constraints on the PID’s effectiveness.

Techniques for Applied Process Control provides a thorough understanding of process dynamics and examines both concepts and techniques associated with maintaining basic thru advanced PID control systems.  The course covers industrially relevant control systems, and it stresses a systematic approach for the diagnosis and optimization of underperforming PID-based control loops. The course  curriculum is comprised of the following segments:

  • Fundamentals of Process Dynamics
  • Proportional Control
  • Integral Action and PI Control
  • Formal Approach to Controller Design
  • Derivative Mode and PID Control
  • PID Control with Derivative Filter
  • Systematic Approach to Real-World Processes
  • Cascade Control
  • Feed-Forward Control
  • Dynamics of Non-Self-Regulating Processes
