The course applies the theory of control technology to practice also for slightly more challenging control loops. Studying in this course requires knowledge of the basics of control technology, and you will be able to utilize these lessons when working with control loops.

You will be able to design and tune process controls in the event of disturbances, delays, or nonlinearities, and implement feedforward and cascade controls.
