HYQ-Syllabus-Session 1 for Process Control_2010

    Process Control and Applications


    Course Objectives

    ; Learn the scientific and engineering principles underlying process dynamics and


    ; Apply and integrate engineering knowledge (mainly in chemical engineering) to

    identify, formulate and solve process control problems

    ; Use and apply modern computational techniques and tools (Matlab) for solving

    process control problems

    ; Become familiar with industrial control systems, such as level control, flow

    control, pressure control, temperature control and concentration control mostly in

    chemical industry.

    Course Content

    This course will cover the fundamental theory underlining the practice of process control and its applications in the processing industry. Therefore, it will just be of elementary introduction from the analytical and synthetic perspectives in nature. The topics that will be covered are as following,

    ; Introduction to Process Control: Incentives and motivation for process control. ; Mathematical Tools: Mathematical modeling of dynamic processes. Linearization

    of nonlinear systems. Laplace transforms.

    ; Response of open-loop systems: First-order systems, Second-order systems,

    Higher-order systems, Time delays, Transfer functions.

    ; Single-loop control systems: Transient response, Types of controllers. Stability of

    closed-loop systems. Frequency response methods

    ; State space systems and analysis: Single input and single output (SISO) systems

    and Multiple inputs and Multiple outputs (MIMO) systems

    ; Multiloop control system: Feedback-Feedforward control. Cascade Control. Ratio

    Control. Time-delay compensation. Multivariable control systems. Course Textbook: Pao C. Chau, Process Control: A First Course with MATLAB,
