Syllabus:

The purpose of this course is to introduce the key concepts in automatic control and instrumentation of process plants. Material and energy balances are extended to unsteady state (dynamic) systems and Laplace Transforms are introduced as a means of conveniently representing process control systems and solving ordinary differential equations. First order, second order, and integrating systems including dead time are treated with basic controller algorithms. Commonly used sensing, transmission and final control elements are described and depicted in piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs). The course is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, practicals and exposure to simulation programs currently used in industry. Once you have completed the course, you should be able to characterise and tune simple processes and appreciate the relevance of control systems to safety and profitability.
