ERT 321/4 PROCESS CONTROL & DYNAMICS
This course includes an introduction to process control and dynamics, feedback controllers, control system instrumentation, overview of control system design, theoretical models, dynamic behavior of processes, PID controller design and troubleshooting. The theory is supported by performing laboratory experiments.
Ability to derive and develop theoretical model of chemical processes, analyze Laplace transform techniques to simplify first order and second order processes and creat transfer functions and state space models.
Ability to develop dynamic behavior of first and second order processes, analyze dynamic response characteristics of more complicated processes and development of empirical models from process data.
Ability to analyze control system instrumentation and propose feedback control system for bioprocess and chemical processes.
Ability to calculate and analyze dynamic behavior of closed-loop control system.
