Applications of Advanced Process Control in DCS Virtual

Course Overview:

Advanced Process Control in DCS training will cover the practical applications of the modern distributed control system (DCS). Whilst all control systems are distributed to a certain extent today and there is a definite merging of the concepts of DCS, Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and SCADA and despite the rapid growth in the use of PLC’s and SCADA systems

Course Objectives:

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the Sensors, instrumentation, and process control as they relate to DCSs
  • Cover the DCS Organization and operation
  • Have a better understanding of the most important Networking, HMI, and Alarm features of DCSs
  • highlight Maintenance and Troubleshooting procedures and issues
  • be familiar with the advanced Process Controllers in DCSs
  • cover Latest trends related to DCSs
