Course Outline: 

Ironically, loop tuning is the last thing you do! Process designs, control strategies and instrumentation all have a direct impact on the effectiveness of controllers.

Process Control Techniques – Level 1 is a two day course designed to teach a systematic approach to loop tuning. It builds on the fundamentals of process dynamics, instrumentation troubleshooting, and Lambda tuning of control loops.

PLEASE NOTE: THE LABS FOR THIS COURSE ARE PERFORMED USING VIRTUAL DELTAV STATIONS ON LAKESIDE'S VPN.  CONSEQUENTLY, CISCO'S ANYCONNECT MUST BE INSTALLED ON YOUR COMPUTER TO ACCESS THESE VIRTUAL STATIONS. WE ASK THAT YOU CHECK WITH YOUR COMPANY'S IT POLICY REGARDING INSTALLING ANYCONNECT ON YOUR WORK COMPUTER PRIOR TO TRAINING TO ENSURE YOU ARE PREPARED FOR THE LABS. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS REGARDING THIS.
