Process Modeling and Control
ENG MS 507
An introduction to modeling and control as applied to industrial unit processes providing the basis for process development and improvement. Major themes include an integrated treatment of modeling multi-domain physical systems (electrical, mechanical, fluid, thermal), application of classical control techniques, and system design. Topics include modeling techniques, analysis of linear dynamics, control fundamentals in the time and frequency domain, and actuator selection and control structure design. Examples drawn from a variety of manufacturing processes and case studies. Meets with ENGME507. Students may not receive credit for both.
