Instrumentation & Control: Process Control Fundamentals
Control in process industries refers to the regulation of all aspects of the process. Precise control of level, temperature, pressure and flow is important in many process applications. This module introduces you to control in process industries, explains why control is important, and identifies different ways in which precise control is ensured.
The following five sections are included in this module:
* The importance of process control
* Control theory basics
* Components of control loops and ISA symbology
* Controller algorithms and tuning
* Process control systems
As you proceed through the module, answer the questions in the activities column on the right side of each page. Also, note the application boxes (double-bordered boxes) located throughout the module. Application boxes provide key information about how you may use your baseline knowledge in the field. When you see the workbook exercise graphic at the bottom of a page, go to the workbook to complete the designated exercise before moving on in the module. Workbook exercises help you measure your progress toward meeting each section's learning objectives.
