What you will learn

  • Learn the essentials of process control and instrumentation for a successful career in process industries
  • Understand the main terms and parameters of process control (Process variable PV, Setpoint SP, Operating point OP, Error, Offset, Load disturbance…)
  • Identify the different control loops and describe their main tasks
  • Describe the basic function and method of operation for the main control loop components (Transducer, Converter, Transmitter, Indicator, Recorder, Controller…)
  • Given a piping and instrumentation drawing (P&ID), correctly identify, interpret and label the instrument, location and signal type symbols
  • Differentiate between discrete, multistep, and continuous controllers
  • Describe the general goal of controller tuning
  • Describe the basic mechanism, advantages and disadvantages of the following mode of controller action: Proportional, Integral and Derivative
  • Identify the basic implementation of P, PI and PID control in the following types of loops: Pressure, Flow, Level and Temperature loops
  • Differentiate feedback and feedforward control loops
  • Diagram the process control loop using ISA symbology
  • Explain the basic implementation process for each of the following types of control: Cascade, Split range, Batch, Ratio and Selective controls
  • Understand through extensive 3D animation the techniques and methods used in process industries to measure temperature, pressure, flow and level

Description

Control in process industries refers to the regulation of all aspects of the process. Precise control of level, temperature, pressure and flow is important in many process applications.

This course introduces you to control in process industries, explains why control is important, identifies different ways in which precise control is ensured and illustrates the different set of instrumentations used to perform measuring tasks for temperature, pressure, flow and level.

The course includes extensive graphics, cut sections, process schemes and 3D animations to give you a virtual practical exposure on process control and instrumentation.

The objective of this course is twofold :

  1. Break down for you all the process control and instrumentation principles into easily digestible concepts like feedback control, split range, controller tuning, transmitters, differential pressure gauges, etc…
  2. Illustrate through 3D animations and cut-sections the main control instrument devices to measure temperature, pressure, flow and level like thermocouples, capacitive pressure gauges, coriolis flow meters, etc…
