Principles and Practices of Automatic Process Control, 3rd Edition (EHEP000423) cover image

Description

Highly practical and applied, this Third Edition of Smith and Corripio’s Principles and Practice of Automatic Process Control continues to present all the necessary theory for the successful practice of automatic process control. The authors discuss both introductory and advanced control strategies, and show how to apply those strategies in industrial examples drawn from their own professional practice.

  The strengths of the book are its simplicity, excellent examples, practical approach, real case studies, and focus on Chemical Engineering processes. More than any other textbook in the field, Smith & Corripio prepares a student for use of process control in a manufacturing setting.

Course Hierarchy:

Course is called Process Control

Senior level course

Same course as Seborg but Smith is considered more accessible

The Wiley Advantage

  • An ideal balance between classical control theory and applications.
  • Practical applications of advanced control strategies.
  • The material is presented in a way that Chemical Engineering students can understand and relate to.
  • Comprehensive explanations of controllers and their tuning.
  • Integration of process simulation, instrumentation and control.
  • Clear presentation of process characteristics, modeling,instrumentation and control valves.
  • Design control schemes for process plants. Applied presentation of computer control techniques.
  • Strong emphasis on understanding the dynamic response of the process, and then applying control techniques. When students learn to model, in the first half of the course, the second half (controls) is easier for them because the proper foundation has been laid.
  • Facilitates students’ understanding of the development of a block diagram from process fundamentals, reinforcing their understanding of process.

The strengths of the book are its simplicity, excellent examples, practical approach, real case studies, and focus on Chemical Engineering processes. More than any other textbook in the field, Smith & Corripio prepares a student for use of process control in a manufacturing setting.

Control Tuning Labs
The authors have developed several processes (described in Appendix D of the text) to practice the tuning of feed-back controllers, cascade controllers, feedforward controllers, and the pairing and tuning of controllers in a multivari-able control system. These Control Tun-ing Labs have been used by the authors for many years in their university courses, and in training of practicing en-gineers. The Control Tuning Labs were developed using LabVIEWtm, a trade-mark of National Instrumentstm. Visit the Student Companion Site or Instructor Companion Site portion of the book website.
Simulations
All simulations of examples in the text, as well as simulations using VisSimtm . Visit the Instructor Companion Site por-tion of the book website.
