What this paper is about
This paper will build on the control engineering knowledge gained by students in previous years and focus on applying advanced process control concepts in the process industries.
In order to achieve this objective this paper will focus on improving the student's knowledge in four areas (See figure) with a focus on the process control structures & instrumentations and Process dynamics & Tuning
The course will enable students to learn and apply process control concepts to "realworld" situations as opposed to being more control theory focused.
How this paper will be taught
Lectures: Monday and Thursday will cover theory in a traditional classroom setting. On Wednesday the lecture slot will be used as a Tutorial/flipped classroom session to work on relevant handson assignments. The workshop session is for students to work on relevant assignments at their own pace.
