Who Should Attend
Individuals who need to learn the following should attend this course:
- How to make basic PID design decisions
- How to program and configure PIDE instructions using function block diagram
- How to tune basic PID loops using manual methods and ladder diagram
- How to autotune
To successfully complete this course, the following prerequisites are required:
The following skills and knowledge are helpful:
To enhance and facilitate the students’ learning experiences, the following materials are provided as part of the course package:
- Student Manual includes the key concepts, definitions, examples, and activities presented in this course
- Lab Book provides learning activities and hands-on practice. Solutions are included after each exercise for immediate feedback
- RSLogix 5000 and Logix5000 Procedures Guide provides all of the steps required to complete basic RSLogix 5000® software tasks that are common to all Logix5000™ hardware platforms. By following the procedures in this job aid, you can immediately apply what is learned in the course to their own jobs.
Throughout this course, you will have the opportunity to practice the skills you have learned through a variety of hands-on exercises.
You will practice programming and configuring function block diagram using RSLogix 5000. Ladder diagram will be used to verify manually calculated gains. Ladder will also be used to adjust gains in order to develop an understanding of how proportional, integral, and derivative gains impact process control loops. Using a simulated ControlLogix panel and RSLogix™ Emulate 5000 software, you will test your program and autotune. You will also use RSLogix 5000 faceplates in Microsoft Excel to control and monitor your process loop.
