Course Syllabus

Course Description
This course covers the principles of automatic industrial control and the operation of the feedback loop to include proportional, integral and derivative control modes. Advanced concepts of cascade, ratio, and feedforward control are presented. Methods of controller tuning are presented and practiced. Improved control provides better productivity and efficiencies.
This course presents, step by step, practical, successful tuning methods that utilize closed loop relationships and reaction curve analysis to tune feedback controllers in process industries. These methods can be easily understood and applied immediately to provide improved control of your processes.
Also this course explains the operation and application of advanced regulatory control methods: ratio, cascade, adaptive feedforward, override and deadtime control. Strategies are covered as well as mean to study process dynamics needed for implementation.
You will learn how to tune advanced control systems to improve control of various types of processes. This will lead to more efficient process operation.
