Who should attend

This course is intended for all process control engineers and supervisors, instrumentation and control system engineers, automation engineers, instrumentation engineers and technologists. Further, process engineers, electrical engineers and supervisors and those involved in the design, implementation and upgrading of industrial control systems will also benefit from practical aspects of this course.

About the course

This Course introduces you to YOKOGAWA DCS, its general control Concept and the areas of applications in industry in which they are being applied. Distributed control refers to a system of digital instrumentation that is distributed geographically and also functionally. In the geographical context, a number of electronic assemblies are located in processing areas throughout a plant, wired to process-mounted sensors from which they receive information about the process conditions and also connected to process-regulating devices to which they send commands generated by programs that process the sensor-derived information including its scanning method, also covered its architecture and configurations, system tag name, function blocks configuration, network and data communication , I/O modules and sub system communication also will cover The Advantages of DCS from many points of view Management Consideration, and Operator Requirement Consideration.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • To understand the major components which make up the Systems, operation of modules, performance critical protection, basic System configuration within software, Fault Reporting, I/O Circuits employed in the system, including redundancy and fault tolerance.
  • To identify, isolate and repair faults of field interfaces as well as the Controller equipment
  • To understand and perform the steps necessary to initialise the system, Including power-up sequences and program loading and execution
  • To perform routine maintenance operations on the system
  • To be familiar with the system drawings and documentation as required to Support maintenance and troubleshooting procedures
  • Be able to interpret module information, carry out module replacement and plant maintenance
