The first book to offer a practical, plantwide approach to designing effective controls for continuous chemical and petroleum processes Process control lore includes tales of multi-million dollar plants that never operated. Though individual controls were well designed, they simply did not work together. This book the first to offer a practical, plantwide approach to preventing such catastrophes. Written by three respected experts and verified in real-life implementations, this book helps you develop effective basic regulator control systems for plants on the drawing board, being revamped, or in full operation. Four realistic case studies (Tennessee-Eastman, isomerization, vinyl acetate, and HDA processes) contribute to making this guide a process control classic.

From the Back Cover:

Design an effective control structure for the entire plant. Process control lore includes tales of multi-million dollar plants that never operated. Though individual controls were well designed, they simply did not work together. This book--the first to offer a practical, plantwide approach to designing effective controls for continuous chemical and petroleum processes--can prevent such catastrophes. With four realistic case studies...Tennessee-Eastman, isomerization, vinyl acetate, and HDA processes (the first time a workable control structure for HDA has ever been published)...Plantwide Process Control gives chemical engineers, and students, the tools they need to design effective control schemes. Written in accessible, nonmathematical language, this book will be a process control classic.
