Course Number: SECS 3115 (2.4 CEUs/24 Hours)
Learn the practical fundamentals of automatic process control theory through classroom case analysis and hands-on problem solving. You will learn the four basic characteristics of every industrial process, and use this understanding to control and tune the process loop. Explore the cause and effect relationship of properties of physical systems and their control, feedback control stability and response characteristics, basics of traditional three mode (proportional integral and derivative) tuning of control loops. Advanced control topics include ratio, cascade, modeling of physical systems, feed forward, override, and multi-variate control. You will get hands-on practice using PC Control Lab software. Many of our students report immediate returns from this class because they are able to apply what they are learning to solve their in-plant control problems.
