There has been an understandable reluctance in the market to accept wireless communication as an integral part of safety critical applications. However, these applications can also benefit from the use of wireless technologies if the obstacles can be overcome. The Wireless Industrial Networking Alliance (WINA) is pleased to present a webinar featuring Niels Aakvaag, senior system [...]
Operator attention, reaction, and effectiveness are often overlooked areas that can improve the performance and safety of your control system or plant. Yet operator effectiveness is one of the key elements for running a safe, efficient, and profitable plant. Research shows worldwide process industry losses because of unscheduled downtime and poor quality can exceed $20 [...]

ISA’s ongoing publishing partnership with O3neida has produced a new technical publication, Agent-Based Technology Manufacturing Control Systems, Luca Ferrarini and Arndt Lüder, editors. This practical reference focuses on a new design technology and process specifically conceived for reconfigurable manufacturing system control. It represents the first integrated application in real industrial environments of agent-based technology, ontology-based [...]
Suppressed and elevated ranges. The process control industry seems to make a big deal about this subject, certainly important if you are taking the CCST exam, and people get confused. Technicians tend to over think it and over complicate the issue; it is much easier than many try to make it seem. There is a [...]
You will leave this course with a practical understanding of designing and applying Model Based Control (MBC) strategies. You will learn the basic structure of all MBCs, the basic technology of Model Predictive Control (MPC), and how to successfully build and monitor controllers
This is the fourth of six seminars focusing on the Control Systems Engineer (CSE) PE examination. It will give you a quick overview of the most likely exam topics in control loops, methods of loop documentation, various loop types, characteristics of control function, and some loop tuning principles. Controllers and their function are included in the application portion of the review. Some advanced control techniques are also surveyed.
