This course provides a complete and up-to-date overview of the process control, instrumentation and troubleshooting techniques used to solve process problems. It will provide participants with the knowledge and skills needed to troubleshoot and solve various problems encountered when working with instrumentation and controls systems.
They will review process measurement fundamentals and gain a sound understanding of the operation and set up of transmitters before elevating their knowledge onto more complex concepts of process control.
The different control concepts and strategies will be covered allowing participants to identify which one to apply to their own work in order to effectively operate and troubleshoot a process. A 7-step systematic method of troubleshooting will be provided in order for all participants to logically and effectively troubleshoot a system regardless of the type of system.
This course offers practical exercises that will allow all participants to use the knowledge they gained to demonstrate their skills in troubleshooting a process problem.
Participants will be provided laptops and immersed into an interactive environment where they will learn how to:
- Perform calculations of turn down ratio required for a specific application
- Provide measurement solutions
- Calculate the given current output for any given input to the transmitter
- Calculate the time constant for a process
- Arrive at base values for the parameters of proportional, integral and derivative values
This course is designed for instrumentation and control personnel including general maintenance personnel, plant managers and supervisors, control and instrumentation technicians and engineers, automation engineers, electricians and general engineers.
