Instrumentation, Controls and Electrical Systems for Facilities Engineers - ICE-21
Managers, engineers, technicians and system operators requiring a broad understanding of instrumentation, control, and electrical systems in oil and gas facilities.
You will Learn:
- Defining fundamentals parameters for electrical power usage and generation such as voltage levels, self-generate versus purchased power, and basic electrical power management .
- Developing electrical power demand (load) lists, one-line diagrams, and the selecting and integrating power distribution systems.
- Identifying electrical power users (for the load list) then evaluating the equipment demand on the power system (such as intermittent or continuous service, and motor starting loads).
- Using safe practices such as hazardous area definition and circuit protection.
- Defining what to measure, why measure a parameter and how to measure.
- Determining and using the many control strategies, equipment and computer systems common to an oil and gas facility.
- Identifying equipment and instrument characteristics and using appropriate instrumentation and controls.
- Defining and integrating components into systems that monitor and locally control the process (and related equipment), safety systems, and the communications and remote control systems use.
- Key electrical power considerations and fundamentals applied in oil and gas facilities.
- Voltage levels and power type (3-phase, single-phase, and direct current) selection and application.
- Purchased power considerations including generation efficiency, redundant sources, transmission grid parameters, and cost considerations.
- Electric power distribution, systems loads, internal grid layout, major distribution equipment and cabling.
- Power users definition and integration into the power distribution system.
- Electrical system safety.
- Process systems operations and the key characteristics, and measurement needs, as well astechniques to measure and control.
- Control modes and their applications, communications requirements, and the operator andcomputer controller interface.
- Interrelationships between process, equipment, instruments and controls.
- Field (facility) control and monitoring systems such as pressure and level indicators and controllers.
- Field (facility) safety monitoring and response systems including SIS, HIPPS and emergency shutdown valves.
- System-wide considerations including communications, local control, remote control, and data management and use.
