FM 103 focuses on the critical devices that put the energy into your hydraulic models such as centrifugal pumps and fans. Students learn pump fundamentals and the parameters to size, define, and set up these devices to fully represent their real-world digital twin. This knowledge is put into practice as students define the devices and associated process control methods in their own virtual lab. Calculated results are reviewed and explained as the student gains an understanding of how their model can be used as virtual instrumentation.
