The field of process measurement and control is changing at a dramatic rate. Measurements and accuracies that would have been thought of as impossible to achieve are now commonplace. However, unless applied correctly, huge resources can be squandered to no avail.
Research carried out by International Society of Automation and other bodies indicates that up to 75% of all control loops will oscillate when operated in automatic. Much of the blame can be put, not on the measuring instruments themselves, but on lack of knowledge, misapplication and misunderstanding of the technologies that are available.
This Salvo Global’s workshop, ‘Advanced Instrumentation and Process Control’, examines some of the latest process measurement and control technologies and how marginal gains and incremental advances have revolutionised the industry. This course will cover theoretical knowledge supported by practical application and activities. Attendees will have the opportunity to develop, design, test build and improve their current instrumentation system.
This three-day workshop is designed for professionals involved in designing, selecting, sizing, specifying, installing, testing, operating, and maintaining process instrumentation and control systems:
From the following industries:
By the end of this masterclass, delegates will learn key steps to successfully:
- Understand key principles of operation for a wide range of sensors and transducers
- Discover the latest developments in instrumentation technology and how you can apply it to your current assets
- Learn hands-on approach in investigating the operation of an instrumentation systems through building, designing and testing of sensors together with appropriate signal conditioning circuits
- Comprehend key concepts of process control and how it applies to real-time operations
