Pneumatics: Tuning Pneumatic Control Systems

SKU: RVI-11174Duration: 60 Minutes

When you tune a control system, you check and adjustment the instruments in the system to ensure that it operates within specified limits. The procedure's a lot like tuning an automobile engine. No two engines are the same, but if you know the engine and you use a logical tuning method, you can probably do the job. Now, in a plant, no two process control systems are exactly the same, but with the right knowledge and resources, you can tune a variety of control systems. In this interactive online course course, we'll look at some of the basic principles of tuning a pneumatic control system. Then, we'll look at the process characteristics that are important in tuning, and we'll examine some common tuning methods. Afterwards, we'll see how an instrument technician tunes a control system. Most of the information that you'll learn from this course can be applied to the pneumatic control systems in your plant.
