>> Developing and Applying Standard Instrumentation & Control Documents

Description :

Methodology for the de4sign and developing control systems documentation will be presented. The development of piping and instrument diagrams and related ISA drawings is emphasized. This course covers both the development and the reading interpreting of these documents and can be beneficial to both engineers and technicians.

You will be able to :

  • Design, develop and interpret the documents used to define instruments and control systems for a typical project, including: piping and instrument diagrams, loop diagrams, specification forms, instrument lists, logic diagrams, installation details and location plans.
  • Understand the information included on each document.
  • Plan document development as it relates to project management.
  • Apply ISA standards for symbols and terminology to documentation.
  • Understand the relationship of ISO 9000, OSHA process safety management (PSM), and API 750 to control systems documentation.

You will cover :

  • P&IDs : Definition and use ISA standards symbols and identification/ Contents and piping information/ Design and construction/ Developing from flow diagrams/ Scheduling considerations/ Hazardous area considerations.
  • Instrument Lists : Definition and use.
  • Logic Diagrams : Definition and use / Symbology/ Interpretation/ ISA standards.
  • Installation Details : Use / Development/ Materials of Construction/ Valves /Scheduling.
  • Location Plans : Purpose and Development/ Structural considerations/ Electrical and other Trays/ Panel Location.
  • Loop Diagrams : Purpose/ Interpretation/ Development/ ISA Standards/ Scheduling Considerations.
  • Control Methods : Feedback/ Feedforward/ Ratio/ Cascade/ Control Valves.
  • Standards and Documentation : ISA-5.1 – ISA-5.5/ ISO 9000/ OSHA/Process Safety System Management/ API 750.

Classroom/Laboratory Exercises :

  • Develop diagrams for flow, level, temperature, and pressure loops.
  • Develop documentation for sample instruments.
  • Design and develop a P&ID from a flow diagram and process description.
  • Develop other project documents.

Optional lab :

Participants are invited to bring their own plant specific P&IDs for group discussion.
