Process dynamics and control

Consistency In the sections I reviewed, the text was consistent. Modularity rating: 5 If anything this book is too modular. It comes across as a compendium of notes from various courses that have been merged into one document. Control concepts are cited in the first pages of the book, but are not explained to the reader until you get pages further into the text.

Interface rating: 2 The equations in this book are all a bit fuzzy looking. They appear to have been copied and pasted from other documents with too little resolution.

Also, many of the figures also suffer from too few pixels. Today's students would not like it. Grammatical Errors I did not find any grammatical errors. Cultural Relevance. In the first place, they think that this subject is nothing but scores of exercises through a lot of tougher variety of mathematical procedures like analysis involving complex variable, operational methods of solution of differential equations, matrix representation and solution of differential equations, frequency domain analysis that reminds vector plots used in AC circuit analysis, Fourier integral series and transform, etc.

Also an undercurrent of notion exists that the dynamics and control should not be considered as one of the principal or core subjects of chemical engineering like stoichiometry, thermodynamics, unit operations, and processes because in process equipment analysis and design that is taught under unit operations, no dynamic model is ever used.

These are probably the reasons, for which, during this conception jump from steady to transient state, a kind of soft landing is necessary.

Another unfortunate fact should be mentioned that though the significance of control systems for successful operation of equipment are included in many textbooks of unit operations and processes, however, the teacher concerned while treating the subject matter, hardly mentions their existence or importance. This omission is probably due to the volume of syllabus to be covered within the time frame of a semester.

These are the reasons why the discipline is generally received with an amount of unfamiliarity and no loss of love in between. Even students of upper tiers also approach this subject as a collection of dry mathematical muscle show that has to be tackled with cramming power, and treated as a necessary evil.

This came as the primary challenge to me, when I started teaching in this area. I addressed this issue by stating that the familiar steady state relations are still there in the dynamic model, only, they have been contained in the steady state gain term of the transfer function. The extra term that involves the Laplace operator s, spells a dimensionless time function and tells how much of the gain term would be recovered with the passing of time Section 2.

I know that the gap could not be completely bridged just by this statement and establishing it with some examples, nevertheless, the students become aware that the teacher appreciates their misery and will do something positive about it in future classes.

Assimilation of Dynamic Behaviour by Drawing Simile from Examples I have seen weakness in identifying dynamic parameters, their inter-relations and disturbance types from their physical description. The answer that came up is to think as many number of physical examples, not only from process area but also from areas like physiology, sociology, economics, and even political systems. The criterion of selection was universal that those respond to the environmental changes and demonstrate dynamic feature comparable to an industrial process.

I found that the key word is physical, and its meaning extends from the expanse of learners everyday experience, to the knowledge base he has acquired since the early schooling days through the walk of life.

Helping Teachers to Teach and Students to Learn

Acceptance or appeal of an example to different persons within a target audience is different, but examples developed by computer programs with animated graphic output had the maximum acceptance. Through the years I have developed more than twenty of such examples; eighteen of them are introduced in the accompanying CD.

I have named them as demonstration DM EXE to DM EXE programs. I had to face many awkward questions likeWhy so much song-and-dance with differential equations? Is it impossible to build a dynamic model with only algebraic equations? I have formulated the answer in DM There was another query: The suddenness of putting iw in place of s in the transfer function is not easily digestible, and in response the long fangled complex variable theorem by which this substitution has been justified, also hardly caries any physical significance.

To address this question I have tried to draw a simile between dynamic representation in complex and time domain Section Certain aspects about treatment of a particular topic gradually became apparent that by slightly altering the approach, the ease of assimilation could be improved. For implementation, only two simple dynamic results are necessary as prerequisites Section 5. I have extensively used worked-out examples for examining a result or a conception from a number of areas of process applications.

Also, in the solution procedure, the maximum detail of the algebraic and arithmetic steps has been exposed.

This had been done as a reciprocation to the demand of a large number of students. In placing the topics and designing these examples, I have maintained a sequence of conception development, so that the subject matter may be presented as an unbroken chain that gradually unfolds before a beginner.

I have emphasised the importance of digital simulation for checking dynamic response shapes and control system design and optimisation. The time domain part of this chapter starts with a simple linear interpolation procedure and ends with a simulation program of multiple loop control. Through the chapter, I have exposed the usage of about subroutines through about worked out example programs through which complexity of program writing is gradually exposed.

The chapter ends with four programs for solving frequency response problems. A 3-D plotting subroutine and an optimization subroutine are also developed, these are not included in Chapter 14, however, their usage are shown in the two demonstration programs included in the accompanying CD. My ambition had been to nurture and develop a sort of knowledge about the dynamic behaviour of systems, which would become part of the learners thought process.

Thus, an analytical result or conclusion no longer remain as a mathematical jugglery, instead becomes a physical tangible reality that is corroborated by this knowledge about how any system should behave in a similar dynamic situation.

I have always preached that first priority is your feeling about how it should react, if the result is contrary to it, doubt the mathematics not your feeling. I guaranteed them that no other subject could offer a more logical and sequential development of conceptions that is required to learn the basics with least amount data required to be crammed within. Chapter 1 introduces preliminary conceptions, e.

Chapter 2 starts by showing the dynamic manifestation of a process with examples from assorted areas, then introduces the building blocks dynamic elements necessary for construction of the process dynamic model. Chapter 3 introduces the process model building techniques for lumped parameter, multiple stage lumped parameter and distributed parameter systems. The chapter introduces different analytical descriptions of process models and linearization technique.

Chapter 4 deals with transfer function development of first order systems for a number of example systems, also emphasises the linearisation technique of nonlinear systems.

Chapter 5 discusses the response derivation of first order system to, ideal and non- ideal input functions, certain related properties and the some further development of linearisation technique. Chapter 6 is about the transfer function development of second and higher order systems and derivation of their response to ideal inputs and certain related properties. The transfer and transportation lags are also introduced in this chapter.

Chapter 7 discusses the dynamic models of three hardware devices, Sensor- transmitters, Signal transmission line, Final control elements related to a control system.

Chapter 8 is about the parameters of an ideal automatic controller and dynamic model for different modes of control. Discussion of controller response to ideal inputs in error function and transfer functions for certain industrial configuration of controllers are included.

Chapter 9 discusses about the principle of feedback logic, two basic kinds of disturbances to a control loop, thus introduces the closed loop transfer function. A number of closed loop responses are demonstrated to show the effect of process parameters for different modes of control action. Chapter 10 introduces the stability of a dynamic system with special reference to a control loop in complex and time domain by the help of Root locus method and RouthHurwitz stability criterion.

Chapter 11 introduces the fundamentals of frequency response of a dynamic system, depiction of frequency response data by Bode, Nuyquist and Nichols plots and the information accrued from these plots, also stability analysis in frequency domain. Chapter 12 discusses about the experimental method of process construction. Chapter 13 covers the controller tuning methods by ZieglerNichol, CohenCoon and Lopez by the integral error criterion minimization.

Starting from very simple programs the level is gradually enhanced to include complex open loop and closed loop processes.The time domain part of this chapter starts with a simple linear interpolation procedure and ends with a simulation program of multiple loop control.
