This Scheduled Training Course is free of charge to employees of ACTC member companies. There are a limited number of places and allocation is on a first come first served basis, so early registration is advised. Each ACTC member company is allowed a maximum of four delegates on this Scheduled Training Course. This is to allow each member company to get a fair chance of accessing each course. However, if there is low uptake for a particular course then we would be happy to increase this number. A small proportion of places on these Scheduled Training Courses will be made available to paying delegates from companies that are not ACTC members (see Registration Form below for details).

All delegates are required to register and can be made using the form below. Please ensure the payment details section of the form is completed. Alternatively, a printable registration form is available, or you can register by calling Lesley Breen on (+44) 0141 553 1111.



Meeting Description and Agenda

This one day course will provide process and chemical engineers with a practical appreciation of process control including how control works; the key components of a control loop; what makes control difficult and different control strategies. An understanding of how process design decisions effect control loop operation is vital to ensure the plant performs as well as it can.

The course material presents a practical perspective of process control, with real world examples. Whilst control can be treated very mathematically, this course contains very little and will augment what may have been provided in more academic courses. The course does not assume any prior knowledge of process control however a basic familiarity with the terms used in process plant control systems would allow delegates to maximise their benefit.
