Distributed Control Systems (DCS) Training Course Syllabus

Curriculum Designed by Experts


A distributed control system is designed in contrast with the systems that use centralized controllers – either discrete controllers located within a central computer or at a central control room. These systems are developed to manage the complicated and geographically distributed control systems throughout the plant. Such systems are ideal to be used in a wide range of industries, including refineries, power plants, water treatment plants, automobile industries, pharmaceutical industries, oil industries, and gas plants. Multisoft Virtual Academy is a prominent name in the field of online training. It provides instructor-led and self-paced training more than 800 different technologies. DCS Online Training is designed for the B.Sc/M.Sc Graduates, Chemical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Food Processing Engineers, Waste Treatment Engineers, and Pharmaceutical Industry Professionals.

In its successful completion, the aspirants will learn: 

You will be able to manage the complicated and geographically distributed control systems in refineries, power plants, pharmaceutical industries, water treatment plants, automobile industries, oil industries, and gas plants after attending this course.

Distributed Control Systems (DCS) Training Description

The objective of a Distributed Control Systems (DCS) training course is to equip participants with the necessary expertise to understand, operate, and maintain DCS effectively. The course aims to provide a solid foundation in DCS principles, architecture, configuration, programming, and troubleshooting. By the end of the training, participants should be able to:

  1. Understand DCS Fundamentals: Gain a comprehensive understanding of the principles and concepts of distributed control systems. This includes learning about the components, architecture, and communication protocols used in DCS.

  2. Configure and Program DCS: Acquire hands-on experience in configuring and programming DCS to meet specific process requirements. Participants will learn how to set up control strategies, define control loops, and implement regulatory control.

  3. Monitor and Control Industrial Processes: Learn how to monitor and control industrial processes using DCS. This includes gaining knowledge about data acquisition, process visualization, alarming, and trending within a DCS environment.

  4. Troubleshoot DCS Issues: Develop skills in diagnosing and resolving common issues that may arise in DCS systems. Participants will learn troubleshooting techniques, use diagnostic tools, and analyze system performance to ensure smooth operations.

  5. Enhance System Security: Understand the importance of system
