In almost any nuclear, chemical, or mechanical system, the temperature, pressure, flow, and level of fluids through a piping system or process must be closely monitored and controlled. Various types of temperature, pressure, level, and flow detection circuits accomplish this task. A basic understanding of the theory, characteristics, and mechanical components of various temperature, pressure, level, and flow controls and instrumentation is essential to understanding how they function and operate within a system or process.
This 4-hour course utilizes US Department of Energy training materials (DOE-HDBK-1013/1-92, INSTRUMENTATION AND CONTROLS, Vol. 1, Modules 1 through 4) to instill a fundamental understanding of various instrumentation and control detection circuits as they relate to temperature, pressure, flow, and level monitoring of various processes.
This course includes a True-False quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
