Level-2 Instrumentation and Control course

Advance your knowledge in instrumentation and control engineering. Explore advanced sensors, control algorithms, process optimization, and system integration.

The course has been designed to familiarise Electricians and Engineers with the fundamentals of Control and Instrumentation. The course will cover pressure and flow measurement. The students will be introduced to Single loop PID Controllers and PLC PID control and how signals are connected and how the controllers are configured.  

The students will be shown and use a plant actuator controlled by the controllers, leading to an introduction to PID configuration. 

Course Outline

Below is the course content, which includes a detailed outline of topics and materials covered in the course. Explore and enhance your knowledge!

Pressure E28 

  • Pressure transducers, the students will be introduced to the different units eg Pascals, bar etc. 
  • Pressure measurement distinguish between measurement of differential pressure, gauge pressure and absolute pressure. 
  • Describe the operating principle behind each given method e.g. U tube manometer, diaphragm, bellows, Bourden. 
  • Describe the range, limitations and typical process applications of given measurement methods. 
  • Pressure transducer calibration explaining the terms span, zero sensitivity, also explain isolation procedure. 
  • The students will calibrate a Siemens Sitrain transducer and Foxboro pressure transducer. 
  • Refresher to the PID terms and calculations for the PID terms and tuning Pressure closed loop system 

Flow E36 Element 1  

  • Explain the types and operation of primary flow measuring elements. 
  • Refresher of the instrumentation covered on the Level 2 course. 
  • Explain the difference between the volume and mass flow rates. 
  • Describe the principles of positive displacement, velocity, liquid head and varying and fixed pressure differential pressure measurements.
