Master Control Loop Tuning

and optimise your plant performance

Custom Control Loop Tuning Course

This 2-day, hands-on course equips engineers, technicians and plant metallurgists with the practical skills to optimise control loops in mineral processing plants. No prior experience with complex control theory is required. 

Boost efficiency, reduce downtime and improve product quality

Mastering control loop tuning allows you to: 

  • fine-tune plant operations for optimal performance. 
  • minimise downtime caused by sluggish or unstable control loops. 
  • reduce energy consumption by optimising process efficiency. 
  • enhance product quality through consistent and precise control. 
  • gain a valuable skill that sets you apart in the mining industry. 

Developed by industry experts for real-world application

This course is delivered by a highly experienced process engineer with a proven mining and mineral processing track record. The curriculum is designed for immediate application, focusing on practical exercises and realistic simulations that mirror real-world scenarios encountered in mineral processing plants. 

Who’s the ideal participant?

Are you a brownfield site whose operators constantly put things in manual instead of auto/cascade because they can do better than the control system, making multiple set point changes and constraining equipment from maximum performance?

Or could your brownfield plant benefit from additional stability and reliability to reach production targets?

This control loop tuning course will give you the tools to optimise your plant and give your operators some critical time back so they can focus on what really matters.

This course is a great starting point for thee: 

  • Plant Metallurgist who wants to learn how to apply a technical approach to tuning loops and stop trial and error methods. 
  • Control System Engineer who wants to take their control tuning game to another level 

What Control Loop Tuning course participants learn:

From this course, you’ll discover techniques to overcome some common issues in the mining industry, such as why you need to change your tuning parameters when you change the hopper level setpoint. Digging deeper into the topics covered, you’ll learn:

Keeping my team in the loop

I was very happy with the trainingthe material selected was appropriate and it aligned with what is needed in mineral processing.

On completion of this Control Loop Tuning course, participants will be able to:

  • tune the most common loops in processing plants 
  • diagnose common problems with control valves 
  • deal with process noise and deadtime 
  • test controller performance 
  • run formal and trial-and-error loop tuning techniques 
Loop Tuning Course - Simulation Data 1
Loop Tuning Course - Simulation Data 4

 

Each participant receives: 

  • comprehensive course notes 
  • editable course PowerPoint slides 
  • access to Control Loop Tuning simulation software 

Course structure:

  • Duration: 2 full 10 hour days* (onsite at your location) 
  • Class Size: Up to 8 participants 

 

*This structure can be tailored to meet your site’s and the participants’ needs. We can run over more days (3 6-hour sessions). Talk to our loop tuning team to discuss the set-up that would work best for you and your team.
