Why Choose this Training Course?
In an industrial situation where it is required to measure and control some aspect of a process, it is often the application of the knowledge and the ingenuity of the engineer or technician which is relied upon to solve the measurement and control problem. Therefore a fundamental understanding of the principle of operation of a range of sensors/transducers and instrumentation techniques applicable in an industrial situation combined with an understanding and knowledge of process control techniques and tuning methods equips the engineer or technician with the necessary skills and makes them invaluable in their workplace.
Delegates on this PetroKnowledge training course will investigate the operating principles and concepts of instrumentation and measurement systems and will acquire the knowledge relating to the characteristics and properties of the variables being measured. Moreover, the delegate will gain an understanding of the Process control systems and methods used in a modern industrial system.
This is a hands-on, practical PetroKnowledge training course and where applicable, theoretical studies will be supplemented with practical activities where the delegate will have the opportunity to design, develop, build, test and evaluate their own instrumentation systems within the course room.
This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:
- Introduction to the principles and fundamentals of Process Measurement and Instrumentation systems and Process variables. Symbols and units used and sample calculations
- Principles of operation of Sensors and Transducers used for:
- Temperature Measurement
- Strain measurement
- Pressure measurement
- Flow measurement
- Level measurement
- Ultrasonic techniques for non-invasive process measurement
- Principles of Process Control and study of the main Control strategies used, leading to an explanation of the 3-term PID controller
- Explanation of a method used to ‘tune’ a 3-term PID controller
- Practical activities to design, build, calibrate and signal condition a typical sensor application
