Loop Tip #7 – How Fast Do You Want It?

Much has been made recently of the need to pass along the expertise of seasoned automation and control professionals to the next generation of automation and control engineers. I have been trying to highlight our role in this process in the Emerson Process Expert’s Education category.

You can also see focus in this area of Education by Control magazine’s Walt Boyes and Automation World magazine’s Gary Mintchell in their respective blogs.

I mentioned the work of John Egnew, a Training Consultant and Instructor in our Educational Services group in an earlier post about the Loop Tips he has been sharing. His stated purpose:

“Loop Tips” is a compilation of years of experience with loop devices and controller tuning necessary for keeping control loops operating at the desired performance levels.

His latest addition, How Fast Do You Want It? explores what to do when your controller tuning is not achieving the desired close loop performance.

  1. You inspired a blog post on training and education… thanks. I also just got Virtual Handshake in the mail. Will be reading that along with Naked Conversations: How blogs are changing the way businesses talk with customers, and We the Media: Grassroots Journalism by the People, for the People… to go along with my usual online perusals of many blogs…

  2. Thanks for the comment, N.L.
    I’m glad this post could inspire one on your blog. I added a comment there that folks should consider putting their expertise in items out on http://www.wikipedia.org, since it’s such a huge resource, and one that I frequently link to for background.
    I need to grab a copy of Naked Conversations myself!
    Take it easy, Jim
