This course introduces the principles, methods and instrumentation of some typical process measurement systems for applications in industries and engineering such as oil and gas, pharmaceutical and chemical engineering. This short course is part of an MSc Course that is accredited by IMechE and the Energy Institute. In this course the delegates will take practical sessions in a unique industrial-scale pilot plant in our laboratory.
The course provides an overview of:
- Operational Issues for Process Measurement
- Methods for Data Transmission
- Selection of Instrumentation Systems.
Who should attend?
The course will be of particular interest to engineers employed in the process industries, who require an update on state of the art techniques in industrial flow measurement, and in particular on new instruments and developments.
Course Objectives: upon completion of the course you will:
- Understand the types and technologies for measuring and/or monitoring of different process variables, e.g. pressure, temperature, flow rate, fluid density and viscosity and chemical contents
- Understand the factors which affect the operation of a process measurement system
- Understand the factors which have to be considered when selecting a process measurement system
- Gain the knowledge to propose the most appropriate measurement system for a given process application.
- Analytical Measurements
- Calibration, Measurement Errors and Uncertainty
- Data Transmission and Telemetry
- Density/Viscosity Measurement
- Flow Measurement
- Multiphase Flow Measurement
- Practice session in an industrial scale pilot plant
- Process Monitoring Requirements
- Selection and Maintenance of Instrumentation
- Sensor Technologies
- Signal Conditioning and Conversio
- Smart and Intelligent Instrumentation/Soft Sensor
