DURATION – 3 MONTHS(2 MONTHS CLASS ROOM AND I MONTH IN PLANT)
This course focuses on the concepts and characteristics associated with industrial processes, process variables and Basic process control. Participant will have hand-on experience with a control system as well as process and controller simulators. The participants will be equipped with a knowledge of selection, installation and commissioning of industrial instrumentation, knowledge of a Process , instrumentation systems for the purpose of observation, monitoring or control as applicable in many industries. The class training will be complemented by class workshops, discussion on industry best practices and ISA videos on Instrumentation, Process and Control.. In many respects a clear understanding and application of these principles is the most important factor in an efficient process control system. This would involve the design, specification and implementation of control and measurement equipment. The course focuses on real applications, with attention to special installation considerations and application limitations when selecting or installing different measurement or control equipment.
