Instrumentation & Process Control Certification

5 days IR/INPC
Level
Foundation
Audience
  • Engineers and technicians from process industries.
Purpose
  • This course provides a good knowledge of instrumentation and control systems and facilitates communication with experts to specify, design, operate and improve control systems.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • read and understand a P&ID,
  • select optimal technology for sensors and valves,
  • increase control loop performance.
Prerequisite
  • Engineering degree in the process industries or equivalent professional experience.
Ways and means
  • Practice on mini process skids with industrial equipment.
  • Use of process dynamic simulators.
  • Daily quiz to reactivate the key-points.

INSTRUMENT LOOPS 0.5 day
  • Function, constitution, signal types. Tag naming conventions and symbolization on Piping & Instrument Diagrams (P&ID).
  • Control loop and Safety Instrumented Function (SIF).
