Michael Brown is holding another series of his well known courses on practical process control. The courses are unique and invaluable to novices, as well as to experienced practitioners in the field of regulatory control optimisation. They offer a new and practical approach to a clear understanding of the complexities of feedback control.
The series consists of two courses:
* Introduction and appreciation of practical process control: 1 day for non-instrument personnel who work in process plants, but have no previous experience or practical training in control, such as: process engineers; production managers; metallurgists and chemical engineers. It is also recommended that people who are attending the Parts 1 & 2 the following week should attend the introductory.
* Practical Process Control Parts 1 & 2: Five days for instrument and control personnel like senior mechanicians, technicians and engineers. Even people with years of experience in this field have found the course an eye-opener. Subjects covered include: loop problems and troubleshooting; tuning and control of processes with difficult dynamics and techniques like feed-forward.
The first course series will take place in Johannesburg on Friday 25 July at a cost of R2721 and the second will run from Monday 28 July to Friday 1 August at a cost of R15 582 (prices are for early payment three weeks prior to the course and excl. VAT). Booking should be made early as the courses are normally oversubscribed. (Only 12 delegates are accepted.)
