Overview: 

The workshop starts off discussing aspects of transmitters, along with the modern choice of fieldbus and HART and other communication aspects. It then delves into final control elements. This is followed by important aspects of pressure, level, temperature and flow. The workshop then moves into process control and loop tuning, ending off with model-based control systems, and how this fit into the modern notion of process control. 

 

 

Course Objectives: 

  • Define the role and objectives of instrumentation in any plant 

  • Understand the importance of process variables, in process control 

  • Develop their skills in selecting the right transmitter for an application
