    TRAINING

    in Process Automation
    November 12, 2019 - November 14, 2019
    New Orleans , LA


    In this class you'll learn how to tune a PID controller, for tighter control, improved product quality, and reduced scrap. You'll also learn advanced process control techniques, such as multi-layer cascades, override control, gain scheduling, feedforward compensation, design, and tuning. Optional third day of training shows you how to work with critical boiler control loops and control methods.

    May 5, 2020 - May 7, 2020
    Birmingham , AL


    The course will cover fundamentals of temperature, pressure, flow, and level measurements; process control loops and tuning, with process control exercises. Programmable Logic Controls (PLC), Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Fieldbus Technology, and final control elements will be presented and discussed. Instructors are practicing engineers who are enlisted by the ISA Birmingham Section.
