For junior or senior-level undergraduate Chemical Engineering courses in process dynamics and control, as well as a reference for professionals seeking the latest simulation tools and advanced control strategies.
This is the first book to offer a fully integrated introduction of the fundamental topics of process dynamics with MATLAB software tools that allow students to learn the material interactively through computer-based simulation exercises. Process Control: Modeling, Design and Simulation presents realistic problems and provides the software tools for students to simulate processes and solve practical, real-world problems. Ultimately, the book will teach students to analyze dynamic chemical processes and develop automatic control strategies to operate them safely and economically.
