ISC is pleased to announce that registration is now open for this course. We are offering an "Early Bird Discount" if registration is received 2 weeks before the course start date (see online registration form). Employees of ACTC member companies are entitled to two places free of charge. Note that all courses offered can also be provided at your company premises through special arrangements, please contact us for more information.
Registration is required. Please ensure the payment details section of the form is completed.
This three-day course introduces the basic control engineering concepts in terms of Linear Systems Models, Classical Control Theory and Practical Aspects in Control. The course presents analysis of a linear control system in terms of stability and performance. In addition, Classical Control Method such as PID controller (including tuning methods), lead-lag and root locus are also covered. Significant hands-on examples are used to reinforce the lectures.
This is one of our most popular training courses. It is especially useful to those engineers who may not have had specific control theory teaching during their engineering education. It also provides an excellent refresher course in basic control engineering for practicing engineers. As with all ACTC training courses discussions and questions will be encouraged.
Glasgow City Centre offers a wide range of accommodation, you can find our recommendations here.
