Principles and Practices of Automatic Process Control – Carlos A. Smith, Armando B. Corripio – 3rd Edition


The main purpose of this is to show the of automatic control, together with the fundamental principles of control-automatic-process-theory-and-practice-control theory.

To this end, a good amount of of chaos, and examples are taken directly from the experience of the authors as practitioners and as consultants in the area. In the opinion of the authors, although there are many good dealing with the principles and theory of automatic process control, in most of them the practice of such principles is not provided to the reader.
