Honeywell EPKS Engineering & Maintenance

This programme provides the knowledge and hands-on experience for technicians and engineers on engineering and maintenance aspects of the Honeywell EPKS, DCS system.

It is designed for those who have the basic knowledge and experience working with DCS prior to enrolling in this training programme. This programme covers C300 hardware and software configuration, common maintenance, and basic troubleshooting.

Liquid & Gas Metering

This programme provides basic understanding of liquid & gas metering system and its applications based on several metering installations in oil & gas industry. It mainly focuses on metering operation practices in petroleum industry with emphasis on custody metering.

Distributed Control System Operation

This programme is designed to develop participants’ knowledge, skills and competency to perform the roles of a panel operator involving Distributed Control System (DCS). At the end of the program, the participants should be able to:

• Explain the major components of Distributed Control System (DCS).
• Describe control loops and control strategies.
• Interpret process and system alarms.
• Describe trend functionality and generate the report.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn and develop their skills using Honeywell EPKS and Yokogawa CS300, DCS systems that are connected to process mini plants.

Participants can expect extensive hands-on practical learning activities, interacting with the process mini plants using consoles, schematics, faceplates, etc. to make the knowledge transfer more effective.

Measurement Lab

This facility is equipped with the field instruments such as sensors, transmitters, switches and other calibration tools which enable the learners to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills in performing installation, maintenance, and calibration of process measuring instrument.

Analyser Lab

This facility is equipped with various types of online analysers, Gas Chromatograph and Vibration Monitoring System which enable the learners to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills in performing installation, maintenance, and calibration of Quality Measuring Instrument and Condition Monitoring System.

Distributed Control System (DCS) Lab

This facility is equipped with Honeywell and Yokogawa DCS System which are integrated with process mini plants.

It enables the learners to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills in performing operation and control of the process mini plants, as well as maintenance and engineering activities on the control system.

Additionally, this facility is also equipped with Operator Training Simulator (OTS) which enables our learners to develop skills as a Panel Operator.

Process Control Lab

This facility is equipped with various models of mini plants that utilise air and water as the process medium. They can be integrated to form more complex plants. The Process Plants can be controlled either via Local Controller or DCS Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).

These enable our learners to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills in performing safe operation and control of the process mini plants, installation, and maintenance of field instruments.

Instrumented Safeguarding System Lab

This facility is equipped with Safety Instrumented System (SIS) and Fire and Gas System (FGS). These systems are fully integrated with DCS, Human Machine Interface (HMI), Motor Control Circuit (MCC), and others that replicate the real oil and gas plant/platform systems architecture and technologies. Both systems use TRICON TMR and Honeywell Safety Manager QMR safety programmable logic controller as the logic solver. These safety programmable logic controllers are linked to DCS and HMI via MODBUS communications in both serial and TCP/IP.

SIS is equipped with various types of sensors and final elements that are configured to execute the safety function of water level and flow in mini plant and SIS training skid. FGS, on the other hand, also uses various types of fire and gas detectors and actuators. All fire and gas detectors are fully equipped with  testing and calibration tools.

These facilities enable our learners to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills in performing safe operation, maintenance, and calibration of SIS and FGS.

Control Valve Workshop

This facility is equipped with various types of Control Valves ranging from pneumatic to SMART type Control Valve, which are completed with test and calibration equipment that will enable the learners to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills in performing testing, maintenance, and calibration of Control Valve.

Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Lab

This facility is equipped with Allen Bradley PLC5 and Control Logix 5000, as well as Level Control Training Simulators that will enable our learners to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills in programming, troubleshooting, and maintenance of automation system.

Liquid Metering Training Skid

This facility is equipped with various types of flowmeters such as Ultrasonic, Coriolis, and Turbine Flowmeter which are completed with prover, station computer and flow computer that will enable our learners to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills in operation of metering skid, validation of field instruments, and meter proving.
