APROL Solutions training: Advanced process control [SEM890.3]
Advanced Process Control (APC) is general term for controllers that go beyond conventional PID control or that improve them using additional function blocks. This seminar introduces the APC function blocks from the Process Automation Library (PAL). The function blocks have already been placed in CFC plans and connected. The goal here is to explore control methods that can be used to improve control quality. The basics that have been learned will then be reinforced by completing exercises for practical applications.
