Prior to the PPC training course, attending the following course is recommended :
PPC : Practice of Process Control
37h00 – 5 days
> Attendees will acquire the base theory of operation of PID feedback control loops, showing on one hand how a process may react to its command signal, and on the other hand how to adapt controller actions to a particular process.
> The course provides valuable information via lectures on theoretical concepts, backed-up by direct hands-on training in fully equipped classrooms.
Knowledge of instrumentation and of basic mathematical concepts such as integral and derivative, as well as basic physical laws, although not required, would be helpful.
Operation and Maintenance Technicians and Engineers, who are new to process control principles, or who whish to be “cross trained”.
PID FEEDBACK CONTROL LOOP
> Controller structure.
> Controller operating modes.
> Stable and unstable process response.
> Tuning (trial and error, IRA method…).
> Controller complementary functions.
PARTICULAR CONTROL STRATEGIES
> Cascade control.
> Feedforward control.
> Override, split-range and ratio control.
> On/off control.
DCS AND PLC CONTROL CAPABILITIES
> Function blocks to be found in DCS and PLC’S.
> Examples of control strategy programming.
> How to check if a PID controller works properly.
> Diagnosis of process variable continuous cycling, and of permanent error between process variable and set point.
HANDS – ON WORKSHOPS (50%)
> Tuning P.I.D. control loops on simulated process.
> Tuning and troubleshooting P.I.D. control loops on genuine heat exchangers and other process.
