Don’t let lack of education or experience in process instrumentation/control hold you back. Take this quick introductory webinar.

In 60 minutes, you’ll gain an easy-to-understand introduction to the key elements and functionality of process control systems and instrumentation. You’ll examine control systems objectives and architecture and associated process instrumentation, sequence/logic control, and single-loop control and enhancements. This webinar will also cover the tuning and troubleshooting of control systems. While this is an introductory-level webinar, you’ll also gain an overview of advanced control systems. Then, you’ll preview AIChE Academy curriculum that will lead you to a more in-depth study of process instrumentation and control.

Take a look at your agenda:

  • The basic elements and architecture of control systems  
  • Tuning and troubleshooting control systems
  • Fundamentals of single-loop control
  • Advanced control systems – an overview
