FG02 : Mathematics for Instrumentation Technicians

FG02 : Mathematics for Instrumentation Technicians

  • course description:

    This course is specifically designed for the instrument technician who may be struggling with mathematical computations or those who need a basic refresher. The course is focused entirely on fundamental problems and solutions that an instrument tech continuously works with from entry to supervisory level experience. It also provides a good prerequisite for the various math calculations involved in other ISA training courses.

  • course learning outcomes:

    At the end of the course, the participants will be able to;
    - Recognize the role that mathematics plays in a technician's daily duties.
    - Manipulate formulas to obtain unknown value(s).
    - Define how and why to linearize an output.
    - Analyze and define a word problem and its related answers.
    - Manipulate very large (M, K) and very small numbers (Milli, Micro, Nano, Pico, Femto, Atto).

  • Course outlines:

    Mathematical Concepts Used in Solving Instrumentation Questions and Validating Related Data.
    Logical Analysis Approach to Mathematical Problems.
    - Calculations Regarding: Validating the PV Input/Transmitter Output in Electronic and Pneumatic Instruments | Flow of Product through a Pipe Based on Area and Velocity | Elevated and Suppressed Zero Level Transmitter Corrections | Conversion of Metric Units to English Units and Vice Versa | Proportions, Ratios, and Percentages | Graphs and Logic Tables | Different Number Bases (Binary, Octal, Hex, Scientific Notations) | Density Based on Displacement | Specific Gravity and Density for Solids, Liquids, and Gases | Specific Gravity Affecting Level Measurement | Mathematical Validation of Level Based on Pressure.

  • practical aspects of the course:

    Classroom/Laboratory Exercises:
    - Fractions and formula review ratios.
    - Proportions and percentages.
