Instrumentation Technology/Technician. 150404


The certificate consists of three courses covering the different aspects of control loop optimization, faultfinding, and application of advanced control strategies from a non-mathematical and practical point of view. The material is rich in practical examples and features many hands-on exercises (labs) using process simulation software to help you understand the important concepts covered during the course.
Participants in this program will learn to:
Understand process dynamics and show their relevance to controller tuning.
Describe the inner workings of PID controllers.
Recognize different controller types, algorithms, and options, and describe when to use each.
Apply the appropriate tuning techniques for different process types and tuning objectives.
Employ techniques for quickly assessing the performance of control loops.
Identify control valve and instrumentation problems.
Find sources of process nonlinearity.
Recognize performance issues that are not related to control loop problems.
Identify how and when to apply cascade and feedforward controls.
Understand the interaction of feedforward and cascade
Understand the design, use and tuning of ratio and override controls.
Optimize control loop performance.
