  • Application Seminars

    PMC-100  Process Measurement & Control
    Duration: 6 hours
    Prerequisite: None

    Discusses types of measurements available, some common problems, and leads the participants toward a basic understanding of the effects of the measurement on the control loop. Examines considerations on types and styles of control devices from solenoids to motor driven valves, and requirements for successful control of the process.

    Covers each term of a P,I,D controller and how each is applied in a process control loop. Ratio, cascade and feedforward control are also discussed. Emphasis is placed on simple explanations with little technical detail. A typical measurement and control loop is built for illustration. Failsafe considerations and use of available features to solve difficult problems are reviewed.
