 Overview: Basic Process Control Series - Process Control Modes

• Course seat times vary for each individual topic.

• Individuals receive a certificate of completion and 0.3 CEUs (Continuing Education Units) upon successful completion of final course examination.

Process industries provide countless types of goods and services. Just as the type of goods and services vary; the control methods used in production vary. Some processes require very little control; they operate successfully with a wide range of tolerance. Others may require much finer control. The specific process determines the type of control required.

The Process Control Modes training course was designed to help students understand the fundamental principles of controllers in instrument control systems. It explains the four modes of control action that are commonly used to control industrial process operations (i.e., two-position, proportional, integral, and derivative).

 Objectives:

• Identify the four types of process control modes
• Classify each of the four process control modes as either discrete or continuous
• Identify the industrial control need that is best suited for a two-position control mode
• In a process that uses a two-position control mode, identify the points where the system is on and where it is off
• Select the reasons why two-position control causes oscillations in a controlled variable
• Given two diagrams showing two-position control, match the graphed oscillations in a process variable to the correlating points where a controlled valve is on and off
• Choose the type of system needs that require proportional control of processes
• Identify the relative movements of a proportionally-controlled valve to changes in the controlled variable
• Identify the correlation between proportional band and proportional gain
• Match wide band/low gain and narrow band/high gain to the corresponding response sensitivity
• Select the definition of "offset" as it applies to proportional control systems
• Identify the processes involved in PI control
• Select types of applications where PID control is appropriate and where it is not, and the reasons for each.

* NOTE: Once you access the course, you will have three weeks to complete the course and final exam.
