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.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
E/I Technicians
E/I Supervisors
DCS/ Control Engineers
Process Engineers
