Course Description

This course starts with an introduction to control system concepts covering Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) based applications.

You'll then learn about Emersons Delta V hardware, coupled with basic wiring concepts for instruments and end devices. We will then learn about the Delta V configuration software and use it to interface with discrete and analogue I/O.

The last part of this course covers PID feedback control with the help of Delta V configured software simulators to understand process dynamics and tuning fundamentals.
