The scope and importance of process control technology expands continuously with the growth of industrial automation. For this reason, knowledge of process control tools and theory is vital for chemical engineers involved in plant operation or design. This unit covers the development of linear models, control system analysis, the design and performance of feedback control systems, and the use of control related software. Skills developed in the unit include: - Designing a feedback control system. - Analysing the system's performance for a range of process applications using both traditional and software-based techniques. - Designing common control enhancements. - Appreciating the role, possibilities and limitations of process control tools and methods.
