Course description

Relief and Flare Systems - In-house training by PetroSkills

This course can be conducted on site at your location exclusively for your staff. This workshop provides instrumentation, automation and process engineers and technicians with the basic theoretical and practical understanding of regulatory control systems and how this can be applied to optimize process control in terms of quality, safety, flexibility and costs. Participants in the regulatory control and PID loop tuning course should bring laptop computers to the course.?Centered on the ISA-recommend PC-Control LAB simulator, participants will learn through active participation using exercises, questionnaires, and a series of 16 practical simulation sessions covering: process reaction
