Instrumentation & Control Systems


Over the last few decades, dependency on instrumentation equipment has increased tenfold. All of the major industries (Mining, Oil and Gas, Chemical Plants, etc.) have benefited from this technology, with noticeable improvements in quality, production and record keeping. Unfortunately, due to the rapid expansion of instrumentation technology, many people have started to review this as a grey area, understandable only to the select few.

This highly practical Proclad Academy training course aims to demystify the field of Instrumentation & Control Systems. Furthermore, it hopes to promote closer synergy between non-instrumentation and instrumentation personnel, which can only be to the benefit of each operation. Exercises involve programming and/or configuring single-loop Digital Controllers, PLC, SCADA & Distributed Control Systems (DCS) to implement and test the control strategies on typical industrial processes.

The key features of Proclad Academy’s Instrumentation & Control Systems training course are:

  • Control systems and process dynamics
  • Process control engineering
  • Instrumentation and control systems design
  • Process control and safety systems
Learning Objectives

By attending Proclad Academy’s Instrumentation & Control Systems training course, participants will be able to:

  • Comprehend the concepts of process measurement & control technology
  • Know the role of major components of a process control system ranging from sensors, transmitters, controllers and final control elements
  • Specify & design instrumentation systems for pressure, level, temperature & flow
  • Troubleshoot instrumentation systems and control valves
  • Review and apply the different types of control loop strategies and learn the features and application of Distributed Control System (DCS)
  • Discuss the system components and operation of the Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and learn the configuration of the SCADA systems
  • Envisage the application of the technology in the industry
  • Appreciate the potential of the technology and consider ways on optimum utilization.
