Techniques for Applied Process Control: Cedar Rapids, IA (Van Meter)

DATE

October 27 - October 29

LOCATION

Van Meter, Inc
850 32nd Avenue SW
Cedar Rapids, IA 52404

HOST



This is a two (2) day hands-on and interactive training workshop. The content focuses on the PID controller and how it can be adjusted to enhance control. Participants are exposed to a proven, systematic approach for tuning PID control loops manually and for achieving consistent results.

All necessary computer equipment and software are provided by Control Station for use by participants during the workshop. Additionally, the company is pleased to supply a continental breakfast, lunch, and other refreshments each day of the workshop.

This course is not vendor specific.

 
Who Should Attend?

Technicians, Engineers, and others with responsibility for control loop performance.

 
What’s the Objective?

Learn simple, repeatable methods for evaluating and tuning PID controllers.

 
 
How’s it Delivered?

Key concepts are followed by demos of real-world examples and hands-on exercises.
