Description

A thorough overview of all aspects of chemical process control - process modeling, dynamic analyses of processing systems, a large variety of control schemes, synthesis of multivariable control configurations for single units and complete chemical plants, analysis and design of digital computer control systems.

Features

  • emphasizes problem formulation, analysis of posed control problems, and the synthesis and evaluation of alternative control systems.
  • provides a complete understanding of control design and implementation rather than a mere list of mechanistic tools.
  • discusses both controller design concepts and hardware elements needed for practical implementation of various control schemes.
  • emphasizes controllers' actions and their relative advantages and drawbacks.
