Overview

This module builds on a basic knowledge of process control. It considers the issues of process model mismatch and control system robustness first before focusing on digital control.
Participants will learn about the role of computers in process control. The differences between continuous time and discrete systems as well as the basic mathematics of sampled data systems will be highlighted.
The module will also include the design of digital 3 term controllers as well as more modern, model-based controller designs which includes the model based predictive controller algorithms and auto-tuning controllers.
