Advanced control systems

Control system solutions for demanding control challenges

Learn how to use advanced process control solutions, such as frequency domain tools, filters, feedforward, master-slave, split-range and override control to design, realize and optimize control systems.

Advanced control systems are needed when you want to optimize the performance of the automated system and for companies that want to lag the competition behind. But how do you approach that in a systematic way?

Optimal use of advanced control systems

After the course:

• you are able to model the system to be regulated
• you are able to analyze the closed loop system in both time and frequency domain
• you can optimally choose and set control algorithm consisting of PID with filters
• you understand gain scheduling and can apply this
• you are able to apply split range
• you understand override control and you are able to apply this technique

Intended for

Programmers (PLC, DCS, embedded, etc.), engineers (process, loads, systems, R&D, etc.), operators.

Course Control Systems
Do you need knowledge of control systems in general? In the course Control systems you learn how a control system works and how to apply it in practice, how to design and choose control system components (actuators, sensors, electronics, PID algorithm, feedforward and software) so that the whole functions optimally.
