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.
Students must attend one activity from each section.
