-------------------------------------------------------- Course Description:-

The 2-day Practical Process Control: A P&ID Approach course will cover the gap of information between the theoretical aspects of process control provided by academia and the onsite knowledge & skill gained by process control and Instrument engineers/technologists in the workplace.

This course explains the concept and purpose of a control system from a P&ID standpoint without going through the mathematical control theories or control system design parameters or electrical complexities.

For design engineers, this course provides the knowledge to design a control system by intuition, as is most commonly done by experienced engineers in regards to control loop systems within P&ID’s.

This course will cover the often-overlooked plant-wide control systems; equipment-wise control system includes pipes, tank and vessels, pumps, compressors, and heat exchangers. Three main layers of control: BPSC, SIS, and Alarm and their “carriers” (DCS and PLC) will be discussed as well, with real-life examples.

This course is suitable for individuals dealing with P&ID’s in all Process industries including Chemical, Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Water & Wastewater, and Food processing industries.

Basic process engineering knowledge is recommended for this course. Otherwise, we suggest taking P&ID: Reading and Interpretation as a pre-requisite to this course.

A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in the Practical Process Control: A P&ID Approach course.

---------------------------------------------------- Instructor:-

Mohammad Toghraei MSc. P.Eng. Mohammad Toghraei has over 20 years experience in the field of Process Engineering and industrial water treatment. His main expertise is in the treatment of wastewater from oil and petrochemical complexes. For the past ten years he has taken on different technical roles in water treatment areas of oil extraction projects. He is now working as an independent consultant.

His method of instruction is rooted in his belief in training that conveys real-life experience to working professionals from different backgrounds who prefer not to be away from work for too long.

Mohammad also provides consultation to companies on a short-term, long-term, or casual/ongoing basis. His expertise spans from conceptual studies, FEED, and troubleshooting of de-oiling and water treatment units, to detail engineering services for general process industries including water, oil, and sulfur.

Mohammad has received a BSc. in Chemical engineering and an MSc. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Tehran, and is a member of APEGA.
