Assuming no prior knowledge of the subject, this text introduces all of the applied fundamentals of process control from instrumentation to process dynamics, PID loops and tuning, to distillation, multi-loop and plant-wide control. In addition, readers come away with a working knowledge of the three most popular dynamic simulation packages. The text carefully balances theory and practice by offering readings and lecture materials along with hands-on workshops that provide a virtual process on which to experiment and from which to learn modern, real time control strategy development.As well as a general updating of the book specific changes include: A new section on boiler control in the chapter on common control loopsA major rewrite of the chapters on distillation column control and multiple single-loop control schemesThe addition of new figures throughout the textWorkshop instructions will be altered to suit the latest versions of HYSYS, ASPEN and DYNSIM simulation softwareA new solutions manual for the workshop problems
