Process Control A First Course with MATLAB – Pao C. Chau – 1st Edition

Description

An introductory 2002 textbook; Process Control covers the most essential aspects of process control suitable for a two-semester course. While classical techniques are discussed; also included is a discussion of state space and control; a modern control topic lacking in most introductory texts. MATLAB; a popular engineering software package; is employed as a powerful yet approachable tool.

Text examples demonstrate how root locus; Bode plots; and time domain simulations can be integrated to tackle a control problem. Classical control and state space designs are compared.

Despite the reliance on MATLAB; theory and analysis of process control are well-presented; creating a well-rounded pedagogical text.

Each chapter concludes with problem sets; to which hints or solutions are provided. A web site provides excellent support in the way of MATLAB outputs of text examples and MATLAB sessions; references; and supplementary notes. Students and professionals will find it a useful text and reference.
