Course Overview

The control of processes in today’s oil, gas and chemical industries requires and needs accurate knowledge of process conditions and this, in turn, means the accurate measurement of those conditions. Without any measurement, there can be no control and no information as to the state of the process.

A greater understanding of the measuring equipment and the instruments can develop and improve the performance of the operator and this, in turn, will improve plant performance. Better knowledge of how equipment is selected, how it is constructed, how it’s work helps an operator to identify the cause of problems and prevent their recurrence.

What are the topics covered in instrumentation and control engineering course?

Some of the main topics include:

  • Overview on the fundamentals and principles of Process Measurement, Instrumentation systems and Process variables. Symbols and units used and sample calculations
  • Principles of operation of Sensors and Transducers used in:
    • 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 key Control strategies used, leading to an explanation of the 3-term PID controller
  • Explanation and description of a method used to ‘tune’ a 3-term PID controller

This Zoe training course will empower you with the consciousness of knowing the major types of measuring control instruments and equipment that are used and the principles behind the selection, construction and operation of process measurement and control equipment.
