Chemical Process Control: An Introduction to Theory and Practice – George Stephanopoulos – 1st Edition


A thorough overview of all aspects of – process modeling; dynamic analyses of processing ; a large variety of control schemes; synthesis of control configurations for single units and complete chemical plants; analysis and design of digital computer control systems.

As its title suggests; this is an introductory text to the theory and practice of control. It is intended to cover the needs; as these pertain to the scope of basic education; (1) of a first undergraduate course in process dynamics and control; and (2) of the first part of an advanced undergraduate or graduate course in process control.
