Chapter 1
Introduction to Instrumentation & Control System
This gives an overview of measurement terms and concepts. A review is given of process and instrumentation diagram symbols and places instrumentation and valves in the context of a complete control system.

Chapter 2
Flow Measurement
Initially the basic principles of flow measurement are discussed and then each technique is examined. This ranges from differential pressure flowmeters to mass flow meters. Theinstallation aspects are also reviewed.

Chapter 3
Level Measurement
The principles of level measurement are reviewed and the various techniques examined ranging from simple sight glasses to density measurement. Installation considerations are again discussed

Chapter 4
Temperature Measurement
The principles of temperature measurement are discussed and the various transducers examined ranging from thermocouples to non-contact pyrometers. Installation and impact on the overall loop are also briefly discussed.

Chapter 5
Pressure Measurement

This section commences with a review of the basic terms of pressure measurement and moves onto pressure sources. The various pressure transducers and elements are discussed with reference to installation considerations.

Chapter 6
Control Valves

The principles of control valves are initially reviewed. Various types of valves ranging from sliding stem valves to rotary valves are also discussed. Control valve selection and sizing, characteristics and trim are also examined. The important issues of cavitation and noise are reviewed. Installation considerations are noted. In addition to safety Relief valves, types, valve components, operations and testing.

Chapter 7
Process control - Basic Control philosophy

This gives an overview and describes process control terms and definition, process dynamic characteristics in terms of time constant and transportation time lags, process gain and stability, control system classifications and actions. Functions of automatic control and its elements, feedback & feed forward control and cascade control.

Chapter 8
Fundamental of process control

This explains the different control modes, on-off control, Proportional (p), Integral (I), Integral windup, Derivative (D) and PID CONTROL, PID Algorithms, Ideal, series and parallel algorithms, load disturbances, process control loops (single, multi-variables, cascade, feed-forward, batch and ratio control.

Chapter 9
Process control loop examples

Examples for single control loop, feedback loop, multivariable loop, feedforward, both manual and automatic, a combination of feedforwad plus feedback , Ratio control as well as cascade control loop were given.

Chapter 10
Tuning PID Controller

Objectives of tuning, methods of tuning, Reaction curve method (Ziegler–Nichols), The procedure to obtain an open loop reaction curve Recording the PV, open loop tuning method , Ziegler–Nichols PI control algorithm, Ziegler–Nichols PID control algorithm, Examples of Ziegler–Nichols P, I and D open loop control algorithms, Continuous cycling method (Ziegler–Nichols) and self tuning controller.

Pre & Post Tests will be conducted
Case Studies, Group Exercises, Group Discussions, Last Day Review & Assessments will be carried out.


Define Management Consultancy & Training Certificate of course completion will be issued to all attendees.


A highly interactive combination of lectures and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information and knowledge transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions, and motivate everybody find the right answers. You will also be encouraged to raise your own questions and to share in the development of the right answers using your own analysis and experiences. Tests of multiple-choice type will be made available on daily basis to examine the effectiveness of delivering the course.
