The course establishes the fundamentals of
model development, parameter estimation, analysis of process dynamics
and process control in chemical engineering:

▪ Methods for developing mathematical
models of chemical processes.

▪ Differences between different control
modes: feedback, feedforward and mixed.

▪ Degrees of freedom analysis.

▪ Application of Laplace transforms to
solve linear ordinary differential equations.

▪ Obtaining and applying transfer function
between input and output process parameters and construction of block
diagrams.

▪ Analysis of first, second and
higher-order processes using standard process inputs (step, ramp, pulse,
and sinusoidal).

▪ Analysis of dynamic response
characteristics based on poles and zeros of the system.

▪ Basic components of process control
systems.

▪ Development of dynamic models for
multiple input and multiple output systems.

▪ Process control systems and safety
features.

▪ Model parameter estimation with linear
and non-linear regression.

▪ Setup of control algorithms.
Proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers.

▪ Methods of tuning PID controllers.

▪ Dynamic behavior and stability of
closed-loop control systems.
