his course covers the design of control schemes and implementation inside a DCS or PLC. The course covers how to design and implement various advanced control schemes using real plant examples. The course shows you how to conceptualize the design of APC schemes for maximizing production rates, minimizing utilities, developing schemes to improve the plant’s operating efficiencies, protecting equipment from overloading, and avoiding shutdowns. The course discusses how to build both standard and custom function blocks inside any DCS or PLC. This includes batch control, continuous control, and sequence control. The course takes specific examples of how to build complex and advanced control schemes using a variety of standard and custom blocks in the DCS or PLC.
At the end of this course, students will have the skills to design and build continuous and batch control schemes inside any DCS/PLC. They will have the ability to look at a process flow diagram or P&ID and based on operations goals and objectives, design and implement the appropriate control schemes inside any DCS or PLC. Students will also have the skills to mathematically compute the various tuning parameters and control parameters for the control schemes. The course teaches how to provide automation to stabilize the process operation, how to maximize production, minimize cheaper byproducts, minimize utilities, minimize environmental emissions, increase profit margins and improve key performance indicators. You can develop many powerful APC schemes in any DCS or PLC with the knowledge from this course and achieve the goals and objectives of plant management.
Our APC275 (PLC/DCS-based Advanced Process Control Implementation Tips) training course is very practical, and easy to understand for everyone: engineers, technicians, operators, and students – both new and experienced. That is why our customers consider us the best.
This training course covers the basics of the design of continuous and batch control schemes inside any DCS/PLC and the ability to look at a process flow diagram or P&ID and based on operations goals and objectives, design and implement the appropriate control schemes inside any DCS or PLC. Our course is more hands-on than any competitor. Students can download and install process control software products on their personal laptops for use during our process control training. The software products are full-blown industrial process control software applications used by the industry. This level of hands-on approach tremendously aids the learning process and mastering process control theory and practicals.
Our instructors have over 30 years of industrial experience and process control training experience. They not only have the technical process control knowledge but also skills to make sure participants are fully engaged and able to concentrate on the material.
