Introduction to Process Control, Second Edition (Chemical Industries)by Jose Romagnoli
Synopses & Reviews
Improvements in software, instrumentation, and feedback control as well as deepening linkages between fundamental aspects of process technology have vastly changed the practice of industrial process control. Newcomers to the field must have a strong understanding of the new demands and capabilities of modern process control operations. Reflecting these changes, Introduction to Process Control infuses traditional topics with industry-based practices that provide more integrated process operation, control, and information systems.
The authors adopt a thoughtfully conceived approach that follows a Continuing Problem throughout the text, adding new concepts and strategies to the example, which culminates in a complete control design strategy. This fully realized system is implemented in MATLABA(R), with software downloads available from the CRC Web site. This approach not only provides seamless continuity, but also addresses the plantwide control problem and engenders hands-on, step-by-step understanding of how the concepts apply to real processes. The book introduces data processing and reconciliation along with process monitoring as integral components of overall control system architecture.
Along with an introduction to modern architectures of industrial computer control systems, Introduction to Process Control offers unique and unparalleled coverage of the expanded role of process control in modern industry, from modeling the process to implementing a plant-wide system.
In the same format and philosophy as the original edition, this second volume offers updated content to match the changes in technology and software that have occurred since over the past five years. Changes and updates include information on control hardware, the increase in wireless communication networks, and simulation software that facilitates the use of sophisticated models in dynamic analysis and control. New sections include a significant number of new exercises and examples. The strategy of concept followed by an example is adopted throughout the book. A PowerPoint presentation is included, as well as Solutions Manual, upon qualification.
