2) Instrumentation Designing

This training course focuses on getting the plant instrumentation component selection and integration just right. It progresses from selection, documentation, classification, and right through to final project management. At all times.

The design of the instrumentation equipment used in the plant (used for measurement and control) is absolutely vital. This would be both from an operational as well as a safety point of view.

This training course will feature:

• Crucial instrumentation design documentation (including data sheets, schedules, P&IDs, etc.)

• Control philosophy, with respect to selected instrumentation

• Equipment and instrumentation tagging philosophy

• Instrumentation and final control element (valve) selection and sizing

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

• Assist in crucial decisions for instrument design and selection

• Interpret drawing and diagrams related to newly designed instrumentation

• Have a full understanding of the various process control strategies and how to implement them.

• Manage a project appropriately, from design to handover.

This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

• Instrumentation, electrical, mechanical, process and other engineers, specialists and staff

• Design teams

• Team leaders, supervisors and foremen.

Signals, FDS, Vendors Interaction & P&IDs

• Understanding instrumentation signals

• Understanding process diagrams (including block, flow and where the P&ID fits in)

• Functional Design Specification (FDS) and drawing standard

• Tag numbering and naming conventions

• Reading and creating P&IDs, including assorted P&ID symbols.

Instrumentation, Electrical and Pneumatic Diagrams, and Designing for Proper Acceptance Testing

• Instrumentation drawings and documents, including:

o Instrument selection report, instrument specification, data sheets, loop diagrams & schematics, cable schedules, hook-up diagrams, junction box wiring diagrams, cable racking layout, cable routing diagram, instrumentation index, history sheets, I/O lists, panel layout, power distribution, earthing diagrams and philosophy, PLC schematics, trip/alarm schedules, instrumentation detail, etc.

• Electrical schematics (related to instrumentation projects), including:

o Load lists, main & control circuits, electrical layout, single line diagrams, etc.

• Pneumatic and hydraulic instrumentation schematics

• Acceptance testing

HMI Design Considerations, Area Classification, SIS and Instrumentation Selection & Sizing
