An introduction to process dynamics and process control technology.
Topics• Dynamic process modelling • Process dynamic elements such as resistive, capacitive, first-order, oscillatory and dead-time elements• Behaviour of systems of dynamic elements using MATLAB and Excel• Basic feedback control concepts and the Proportional-Integral-Derivative controller• Closed loop stability and empirical tuning of controllers• Control hardware including controllers, sensors and valves• Cascade, ratio and feed-forward control• Control of unit operationsThe course will be taught both via a real-time approach involving the hands on use of dynamic simulation and building on classical process dynamics knowledge developed in earlier years.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award
Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.
