ISA Toronto Section Updates and Announcements
Greetings members of the Automation Technology Community
Our end of year Dinner Meeting and Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday, May 31st 2018 at the Sandman Hotel, Mississauga. This month’s technical presentation is titled “Loop Tuning – It’s the Last Thing You Do” and will be presented by Sylvain Millette who will discuss how control performance audits have established that 60 – 80% of the control loops are either underperforming or contributing to process variability.
The causes of this under performance are Process Design, Control Strategy Design, Instrumentation, and finally, Loop Tuning. Essentially, “Loop Tuning is the last thing you do!” “Real Life” examples will be used to underline each aspect.
Sylvain is currently the Process Optimization Specialist at Lakeside Process Controls and a long time ISA member who facilitated many training courses in Instrumentation and Process Controls throughout the years. His next 1-day course “Basic Instrumentation” will be held at UOIT in Oshawa on May 23 followed by another one on the 24th, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
