  • Instrument Engineers' Handbook, Vol. 2: Process Control and Optimization, 4th Edition

    The latest update to Bela Liptak's acclaimed "bible" of instrument engineering is now available. Retaining the format that made the previous editions bestsellers in their own right, the fourth edition of Process Control and Optimization continues the tradition of providing quick and easy access to highly practical information. The authors are practicing engineers, not theoretical people from academia, and their from-the-trenches advice has been repeatedly tested in real-life applications. Expanded coverage includes descriptions of overseas manufacturer's products and concepts, model-based optimization in control theory, new major inventions and innovations in control valves, and a full chapter devoted to safety. With more than 2000 graphs, figures, and tables, this all-inclusive encyclopedic volume replaces an entire library with one authoritative reference. The fourth edition brings the content of the previous editions completely up to date, incorporates the developments of the last decade, and broadens the horizons of the work from an American to a global perspective. Béla G. Lipták speaks on Post-Oil Energy Technology on the AT&T Tech Channel.

  • Multivariate Statistical Process Control with Industrial Applications (ASA-SIAM Series on Statistics and Applied Probability)

    This applied, self-contained text provides detailed coverage of the practical aspects of multivariate statistical process control (MVSPC) based on the application of Hotelling's T2 statistic. MVSPC is the application of multivariate statistical techniques to improve the quality and productivity of an industrial process. The authors, leading researchers in this area who have developed major software for this type of charting procedure, provide valuable insight into the T2 statistic. Intentionally including only a minimal amount of theory, they lead readers through the construction and monitoring phases of the T2 control statistic using numerous industrial examples taken primarily from the chemical and power industries. These examples are applied to the construction of historical data sets to serve as a point of reference for the control procedure and are also applied to the monitoring phase, where emphasis is placed on signal location and interpretation in terms of the process variables.

  • Troubleshooting Process Plant Control

    The book focuses on process control in the petroleum and refinery industries, with an emphasis on problem solving. The author explores various real life examples and relays the lessons learned from his career in this area. He explains many new yet straightforward concepts without the use of complex mathematics. This handy go-to emphasizes single and well-established process engineering principles that will help working engineers and operators switch manual control loops to automatic control.

  • 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.

  • Statistical Monitoring of Complex Multivatiate Processes: With Applications in Industrial Process Control

    The development and application of multivariate statisticaltechniques in process monitoring has gained substantial interestover the past two decades in academia and industry alike. Initially developed for monitoring and fault diagnosis in complexsystems, such techniques have been refined and applied in variousengineering areas, for example mechanical and manufacturing,chemical, electrical and electronic, and power engineering. The recipe for the tremendous interest in multivariate statisticaltechniques lies in its simplicity and adaptability for developingmonitoring applications.  In contrast, competitive model,signal or knowledge based techniques showed their potential onlywhenever cost-benefit economics have justified the required effortin developing applications.Statistical Monitoring of Complex Multivariate Processespresents recent advances in statistics based process monitoring,explaining how these processes can now be used in areas such asmechanical and manufacturing engineering for example, in additionto the traditional chemical industry.This book:Contains a detailed theoretical background of the componenttechnology.Brings together a large body of work to address thefield’s drawbacks, and develops methods for theirimprovement.Details cross-disciplinary utilization, ex...

  • Simulation of Industrial Processes for Control Engineers

    Computer simulation is the key to comprehending and controlling the full-scale industrial plant used in the chemical, oil, gas and electrical power industries. Simulation of Industrial Processes for Control Engineers shows how to use the laws of physics and chemistry to produce the equations to simulate dynamically all the most important unit operations found in process and power plant. The book explains how to model chemical reactors, nuclear reactors, distillation columns, boilers, deaerators, refrigeration vessels, storage vessels for liquids and gases, liquid and gas flow through pipes and pipe networks, liquid and gas flow through installed control valves, control valve dynamics (including nonlinear effects such as static friction), oil and gas pipelines, heat exchangers, steam and gas turbines, compressors and pumps, as well as process controllers (including three methods of integral desaturation). The phenomenon of markedly different time responses ("stiffness") is considered and various ways are presented to get around the potential problem of slow execution time. The book demonstrates how linearization may be used to give a diverse check on the correctness of the as-programmed model and explains how formal techniques of model validation may be used to produce a quantitat...
