DCS (Distributed Control System) Course


Incorporating new technology while attempting to simplify the added complexity is a major challenge for today’s control systems. The DCS system was designed from scratch, to be a single solution for the discrete world and the analog world. In this training program, all aspects of a complete DCS operation and programming will be discussed.

This course is intended to understand fully the principles, applications, design and troubleshooting of distributed control system.


After the completion of this training, the participant should be able to use and apply DCS terminology and acronyms, understand the functions of DCS Hardware Components, understand the capabilities of DCS Software Applications, perform a basic workstation operations including accessing displays, interpreting faceplates and accessing modules to make process changes, responding to alarms and observing/changing tunable configuration parameters, and troubleshooting problem in cases.
