Methods of Model Based Process Controlby Ridvan Berber
Synopses & Reviews
Model based control has emerged as an important way to improve plant efficiency in the process industries, while meeting processing and operating policy constraints. The reader of Methods of Model Based Process Control will find state of the art reports on model based control technology presented by the world's leading scientists and experts from industry. All the important issues that a model based control system has to address are covered in depth, ranging from dynamic simulation and control-relevant identification to information integration. Specific emerging topics are also covered, such as robust control and nonlinear model predictive control. In addition to critical reviews of recent advances, the reader will find new ideas, industrial applications and views of future needs and challenges. Audience: A reference for graduate-level courses and a comprehensive guide for researchers and industrial control engineers in their exploration of the latest trends in the area.
Book News Annotation:
Proceedings of the Nato Advanced Study Institute held in Antalya, Turkey, August 1994, to review the most recent advances in model based process control so as to foster continuing research and encourage innovative applications of the technology. The material is arranged in six parts covering the major themes presented at the Institute: process modeling, dynamic simulation and identification; robust process control; advances in model predictive control; nonlinear model predictive control; industrial applications; and fuzzy control. Among the specific topics are process identification techniques; Mp tuning and synthesis; adaptive model predictive control; and self learning model based fuzzy controller.
