TRAINER covers the critical link between instrumentation and effective regulatory control.

Instrumentation can be found virtually everywhere in a typical production facility.  It plays a critical role in the control of complex production processes.  With its direct link to achieving and maintaining effective regulatory control practitioners – both current and future – benefit from a better understanding of instrumentation’s capabilities along with its limitations.  This course provides that understanding.

Fundamentals of Instrumentation and Process Control highlights sensors, transducers, and smart transmitters; temperature, pressure, and flow measurement; valves and pumps; among other important topics related to the physical layer of a plant’s regulatory control environment. It also explores the critical relationship between instrumentation and PID-based control systems.  The course curriculum is comprised of the following segments:

  • Basics of Process Control
  • Process Dynamics
  • Signals and Aliasing
  • Measuring Temperature and Pressure
  • Measuring Level and Flow
  • Pumps and Valves
  • Proportional Control
  • Integral Action and PI Control
  • Formal Approach to Controller Design
  • Derivative Mode and PID Control
  • PID Control with Derivative Filter
