COURSE PROVIDER: Manuel Gooding, P.E.
Introduction to Control and Instrumentation
Course Highlights

This engineering online PDH course will establish, through slides and discussions, the basic principles of control systems, including systems such as loops control, elements, types of controls and control circuit diagrams. Additionally, it will present diagrams of basic instruments to illustrate how the instrument functions.


The Introduction to Instrumentation and Controls presents the elements that make a control system and the most common instrumentation used in industry. It describes basics of control loops, configuration, including control loop and its elements. It also describes instrumentation for pressure, flow, level and temperature, explaining their physical principles, and common applications. Introduction to motor controls is included in the last section of the course. Basic motor control schematics for simple motor starters are explained. Finally, basic description of a of modern motor control center is presented.


The 4 PDH online course is intended for electrical, chemical, and mechanical engineers, as well as project managers in industry, who are interested either in learning more about control systems and instrumentation or wish to refresh basic control and instrumentation concepts.
