COURSE NAME:: Instrumentation, Maintenance and Trouble Shooting

COURSE BACKGROUND:: The oil & gas industry is the major source of revenue which Nigeria depends on and much priority must be given in terms of operations and maintenance. Presently, the refineries are currently not producing at full capacity. 
Instrumentation provides the various indications used to operate a facility. In some cases, operators record these indications for use in day-today operations of the facility. The information recorded helps operator evaluate the current condition of the system and take actions if the conditions are not as expected. This course will focus on the process variables requiring control in a system.

COURSE OBJECTIVES::
At the end of this course, participants should be able to · Appreciate the operation of a typical instrumentations system and understand the related physical concepts. 
· Troubleshoot and solve problems in instrumentations system 
· Identify the various methods of signal transmission 
· Set up standard control loops
· Methodically tune standard control loops and logically diagnose control loops related to problems.
