Product description

This third edition presents a theoretical and practical introduction to this increasingly important approach to process control. Assuming no prior knowledge, the text covers the applied fundamentals of process control, from instrumentation to process dynamics, PID loops, and tuning to distillation, multi-loop, and plant-wide control. It carefully balances theory and practice by offering readings and lecture materials along with hands-on workshops that provide a "virtual" process with which to experiment and learn modern, real-time control strategy development. In addition, it covers the most popular dynamic simulation packages.

Back cover copy

Review of previous editions"Would appeal to practising engineers due to its 'hands on' feel for the subject matter. But more importantly, the authors present these concepts as fundamentals of chemical engineering, in a way that is consistent with how professors teach at the universities." "(Chemical Engineering Process (CEP), November 2006, AIChE)"With resources at a premium and ecological concerns paramount, the need for clean, efficient and low-cost processes is one of the most critical challenges facing chemical engineers. The ability to control these processes, optimising one, two or several variables, has the potential to simultaneously drive substantial gains in throughput and quality, as well as reductions in resources, rework and scrap. Building on the success of the previous editions, this new third edition of "A Real-Time Approach to Process Control" employs both real industry practice and process control education without the use of complex or highly mathematical techniques, providing a more practical and applied approach.Updated throughout, this edition: Includes a brand new chapter on Model Predictive Control (MPC) Now includes wireless and web-based technologies Has a substantially updated chapter on Hardware Covers bio-related systems Describes Fieldbus Technology Details Virtual plant process control exercises using a state-of-the-art process simulatorIncludes PowerPoint slides and solutions to Workshop problems on the accompanying website: http: //www.wiley.com/go/svrcek-real-time-3e
