Practical Loop Tuning using Lambda Tuning Method' short course is a 3-hour introduction to modern process control concepts that include understanding process dynamics and the use of non-oscillatory Lambda loop tuning methods to improve loop performance and minimize process variability.
This session is for individuals that want to gain experience using the AMS Device Manager Wireless SNAP-ON.
The lecture will cover self-organizing network technology, network components, and network operation. Students will learn to design, check, and verify self-organizing network layouts. AMS Device Manager will be used to configure and view wireless devices. Self-organizing network information will also be shown on a live network. The class will concentrate on using the Wireless SNAP-ON to design and check network layouts.
The short course is intended for control engineers and technicians who are responsible for maintaining and improving process control performance. The short course workshops will show students how to use DeltaV Inspect to monitor performance with real-time and historical data and to generate Performance Reports. Students will also learn how to use DeltaV InSight On-Demand Tuning, Adaptive Tuning and Adaptive Control to improve control performance.
This short course provides hands-on workshops for individuals responsible for implementing DeltaV IS S-series Electronic Marshalling. The lecture will cover the hardware architecture and configuration of the I/O subsystem. The hands-on workshops will allow students to install, configure and test their I/O subsystem from the screw terminals to the Operator display.
This course will cover everything from selecting the right DP Flow technology, to installation and commissioning of the DP Flowmeters. Advantages and disadvantages of common DP flow technologies will be explained. Attendees will get hands-on experience installing and using devices on live flowing demos to see the actual effects of common installation considerations. Other topics will include straight piping requirements, troublesome impulse lines, the effects changing process conditions, MultiVariable transmitter configuration and cost effective technologies for larger line sizes.
This Micro Motion short course is for anyone that is connected with the efficiency, safety and maintenance of any plant process and who wants to maximize profitability, uptime and product quality. The growth of Coriolis Flow and Density meters continues to displace other technologies. Whether you already use Coriolis or not, you will learn about how to apply it to challenging applications in your plant and also learn about an exciting Micro Motion capability in the area of Smart Meter Verification.
Your process data defines what valve size is needed, but it holds the answer to much more. Learn how to use your process data and pipe design to select the right control valve and trim design, and to understand the potential for issues with noise, cavitation, erosion, corrosion, and non-standard fluids. This course is recommended for individuals responsible for control valve engineering, selection, and asset management. A companion course is "Sizing Control Valves using Fisher Specification Manager".
This short course is for those with no prior experience in vibration analysis. Students learn about causes of vibration and methods of measurement. Emerson's CSI 2130 Machinery Health Analyzer will be used to demonstrate vibration principles.
This short course is will show you how to download and use the latest version of Fisher® Specification Manager. Designed for engineers, Fisher® Specification Manager software offers a powerful set of tools for producing an ISA specification sheet faster, improving noise prediction calculations and exporting dimensional data for Fisher and Baumann™control valves. You'll find it easy to learn and use. Fisher Specification Manager software helps take the worry out of control valve specification....A companion course is "Control Valve Selection and Engineering".
Process Analyzers- Black Magic, or Window Into Your Process? Why can't process analyzers be more like pressure, flow, or temperature transmitters? Process analyzers provide the most direct indication of the process composition, but they are also questioned by operators more than any other class of instrument. Learn how analyzers work, how to apply them, and most of all-- when you can trust them.The utility of process analyzers lags behind that of other instruments partially because of the inherent difficulty in applying and maintaining an analyzer. Unrealistic user expectations also contribute to the problem. As a result, analytical control loops are often found in "manual". The solution is to better understand how analyzers operate.
The first step is to establish proper expectations for analytical measurements. A better understanding of how analyzers work is the next step. Finally, proper calibration and maintenance of analyzers is required in order to maintain accuracy, and operator confidence.
The result is better operator confidence, analytical control loops maintained in automatic, and more processes optimized.
