• Process Control: The Passive Systems Approach (Advances in Industrial Control)

    Passivity and associated stability conditions form one of the cornerstones in control theory and have begun to be applied in process control. In this book, passivity-based developments in all areas of control theory are addressed systematically for the first time. The emphasis is placed on real results that add insight. Case studies illustrate applications in all the main chapters. MATLABĀ® routines and a library of functions that implement the methods developed in the book can be downloaded from springer.com.

  • Fundamentals of Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control

    Instrumentation technicians work on pneumatics, electronic instruments, digital logic devices and computer-based process controls. Because so much of their work involves computerized devices, they need an extensive knowledge of electronics, and most have degrees in electronics technology. Most textbooks in this area are written for four year institutions and lack the practical flavor that is needed in technical schools or community colleges. Designed as a text for use in community colleges or vocational schools, this up to date text is unsurpassed in its treatment of such subjects as: instruments and parameters, electrical components(both analog and digital) various types of actuators and regulators, plumbing and instrumentation diagrams and Operation of process controllers.

  • Process Control: Designing Processes and Control Systems for Dynamic Performance

    This is a revision of a well received new book for what is a required course in Chemical Engineering. The author uniquely emphasizes practices in industry so that students learn what aspects of plant design & control are critical. This book identifies process as the central factor in plant automation and develops theory and practice to present the parameters of good dynamic performance. Approaches are presented for measurement selection, process/modification, control structure design and algorithm tuning to achieve good performance over a range of operating conditions. The sequence of topics (modeling, single-loop control and tuning, enhancements, multiloop control, and design) builds the students' ability to analyze increasingly complex systems, culminating in multiloop control design.
