A supplement to ANY texts for one-semester, undergraduate-level courses in Process Control.Designed to provide students with a realistic process simulation and control design environment--without pulling in a full-scale industrial distributed control system (DCS)--this text features a set of MATLAB/Simulink scripts that can be used as the basis of a computer laboratory in process control. The structured instructions and exercises--which are sufficient to cover approximately twelve 2-hour computer lab sessions--center around two key chemical engineering unit operations: a binary distillation column and a heated tube furnace. The complexity of the underlying simulation models ensures that students will be exposed to all the complexities of actual process data, including nonlinearity, high order dynamics, and noisy measurements.

The MATLAB-based process control guide for all chemical engineering professionals
Process control specialists have been leaders in recognizing the remarkable problem-solving power of MATLAB and similar tools. With this book, chemical engineering professionals and students each have a comprehensive, MATLAB-based lab manual for process control. Together, the 13 MATLAB/Simulink Process Control Modules presented in this book deliver a thorough introduction to real-world process control, built around two critical chemical engineering operations: binary distillation columns and furnaces. Using realistic process simulation models (not low-order linear approximations), readers will master all these key concepts and techniques:
* Steady state analysis and feedback control
* First-order and second-order dynamic system analysis
* Frequency domain and transient response analysis
* PID controller tuning, feedforward control, internal model control (IMC) and model predictive control (MPC)
* Discrete time system modeling and control
The models are sufficiently complex to expose users to all the complexities of real-world process data, including nonlinearity, high order dynamics, and noisy measurements. Modules are arranged to provide detailed objectives, before-and-after exercises that highlight key issues, detailed step-by-step procedures, and clear summaries. Process Control Modules can serve as an ideal self-paced study guide, an excellent companion to a formal process control course, and a perfect review and refresher for practicing process engineers.
