Electrical Systems Instrumentation and Control for Facility Engineers-OG 8030

14th May - 25th May 2018 (Dubai, UAE) 9th July - 20th July 2018 (London, UK) 8th October - 19th October 2018 (London, UK)

Course Overview

This course provides an overview of electrical power generation and distribution, process and safety
systems instrumentation, and control strategies and configurations. The focus is on application and
integration into the process and control of upstream and midstream oil and gas facilities. The course is
applicable to field production facilities, pipelines, gas plants, and offshore systems.
It is designed for managers, engineers, technicians and system operators requiring a broad
understanding of instrumentation, control, and electrical systems in oil and gas facilities.

Learning Outcome

 Defining fundamentals parameters for electrical power usage and generation such as voltage
levels, self-generate versus purchased power, and basic electrical power management
 Developing electrical power demand (load) lists, one-line diagrams, and the selecting and
integrating power distribution systems.
 Identifying electrical power users (for the load list) then evaluating the equipment demand on
the power system (such as intermittent or continuous service, and motor starting loads).
 Using safe practices such as hazardous area definition and circuit protection.
 Defining what to measure, why a parameter measure and how to measure.
 Determining and using the many control strategies, equipment and computer systems common
to an oil and gas facility.
 Identifying equipment and instrument characteristics and using appropriate instrumentation and
 Defining and integrating components into systems that monitor and locally control the process
(and related equipment), safety systems, and the communications and remote control systems
