ENCH391-16S2 (C) Semester Two 2016

Process Systems and Control

15 points, 0.1250 EFTS
11 Jul 2016 - 13 Nov 2016

Description

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 operations

The 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.
