9780983843801: Process Control for Practitioners

To be effective in optimizing the performance of industrial process control systems, an engineer or technician has to understand process dynamics, controllers, and tuning; use the right techniques and tools; and know how to troubleshoot control problems. This book conveys the knowledge and techniques required to effectively tune controllers and optimize the performance of automatic control systems. It clearly and concisely covers all the topics and know-how required for being an outstanding controls practitioner. Explanations go into enough depth to make the material understandable, but discussions are kept to the point so the book can serve as a reference guide. The book shows you how to tune PID controllers more effectively in less time, and ensure long-term loop stability. It is your complete reference for improving control-loop performance, solving process control problems, and designing control strategies. You will refer to this guide again and again.
