Practical process control courses to be held in March in Johannesburg.

Jan 2000 News

Michael Brown is holding a series of his well-known courses on practical process control in June in Johannesburg. The courses are unique, in that they are beneficial to both novices and highly experienced practitioners in the field of regulatory control optimisation.

The series consists of three courses:

p Introduction and appreciation of practical process control (one-day) for non-instrument people who work in process plants, but have no previous experience or practical training in control, such as process engineers, operators, production managers, metallurgists, and chemical engineers.

p Practical process control, Part 1: Troubleshooting and loop tuning (three days) for instrument and control personnel such as mechanicians, technicians and engineers. Even people with years of experience in this field have found the course an eye opener.

p Practical process control, Part 2: Control techniques for more difficult processes (two days). This course deals with control of processes with difficult dynamics, and the use of different techniques, such as feedforward control.

Most people taking Part 1 also take Part 2 in the same session. It is mandatory that Part 1 is completed before Part 2.

The course series starts in Johannesburg on Friday, 24 March 2000.
