Essentials of Process Control
Combining their extensive knowledge of process control, the team of William Luyben and Michael Luyben has developed a book that thoroughly covers the area of process control. With concise coverage that is easily readable and condensed to only essential elements, Essentials of Process Control presents the areas of process control that all chemical engineers need to know. The book's practical engineering orientation offers many real industrial control examples and problems. The authors present the practical aspects of process control such as sizing control valves, tuning controllers, and developing control structures. Readers will find helpful features of the book to include practical identification methods, which allow them to obtain information to tune controllers more quickly. In addition, the book discusses plantwide control and the interactions between steady-state design and dynamic controllability.
