Process control: Choosing the right measurement and process control system

Part 1 Process control

Production units continally require higher levels on quality, efficiency, carbon foot print and energy use. Process control is essential for both optimizing existing equipment and in the design of new production lines. The right choice in control systems is of course of the utmost importance.

This is a module from the Process Control series. You can follow the entire series, but also opt for one or more separate modules.

In this first module we will present how to design in a structured way the control loops in a plant: defining the targets for the control systems, to decide on what to measure and what to adjust.


In this course you will learn based on the general theory, with case-studies and exercises, how to choose and implement process control systems. You will be introduced into an extensive survey of all possible control systems.

Who can participate?

  • Engineers who want to improve and extend their knowledge on Process Control Systems. And who want to learn and understand more on the practical issues in implementing these system.
  • If you have already an in-depth knowledge and experience with more classical control systems, you can participate directly into module 3.
  • If you are not yet interested in the more advanced control systems and want to limit yourself to an overview on the classical control systems you can stay with only module 1 and/or module 2.
  • At the request of the participants this course can be taught in Dutch or English.
