Process Control: Modeling, Design, and Simulation is the first complete introduction to process control that fully integrates software tools -- enabling professionals and students to master critical techniques hands-on, through computer simulations based on the popular MATLAB environment. B. Wayne Bequette teaches the field's most important techniques, behaviors, and control problems through practical examples, supplemented by extensive exercises -- with detailed derivations, relevant software files, and additional techniques available on a companion Web site.KEY TOPICS: Bequette introduces the key fundamentals of process control and instrumentation, with objectives, variables, and diagrams. He presents today's leading methodologies for dynamically modeling chemical processes, and introduces dynamic behavior of linear systems, including state space and transfer-based models. Coverage includes: feedback control; frequency response analysis; techniques for improving control loop performance; split-range, selective and override strategies for switching amongst inputs or outputs; control loop interactions and multivariable controllers; and more. Bequette presents basic step response model-based MPC and introduces new enhancements designed to improve disturbance rejection. He walks step-by-step through the development of control instrumentation diagrams for an entire chemical process, outlines common control strategies for individual unit operations, and discusses strategies for integrated systems. The book also includes 16 learning modules demonstrating how to use MATLAB and SIMULINK to solve several key control problems.MARKET: For all chemical engineers working with process control.
