Process Control: A First Course with MATLAB (Cambridge Series in Chemical Engineering) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Process Control covers the most essential aspects of process control suitable for a one-semester introductory course. While classical techniques are discussed, Chau also covers state space modeling and control, a modern control topic lacking in most introductory texts. MATLAB, a popular engineering software package, is employed as a powerful yet approachable computational tool. Each chapter concludes with problem sets, to which hints or solutions are provided. The support website provides excellent support in the way of MATLAB outputs of text examples and MATLAB sessions, references, and supplementary notes.

Book News Annotation:

This textbook introduces the design of classical proportional-integra- derivative (PID) controllers and state-space systems, the analysis of stability and the frequency response, techniques for tuning a controller, and three types of advanced multiloop systems. A series of seven MATLAB tutorials is provided at the end of the book.

Synopsis:

Process Control covers the most essential aspects of process control for a two-semester introductory course. MATLAB, a popular engineering software package, is employed as a powerful yet approachable computational tool. Text examples demonstrate how root locus, Bode plots, and time domain simulations can be integrated to tackle a control problem. Despite the reliance on MATLAB, theory and analysis of process control are well-presented, creating a well-rounded pedagogical text. Each chapter concludes with problem sets. A web site provides support in the way of examples and MATLAB resources.
