CHE5179 - Control, operations and safety
4 points, SCA Band 2, 0.0833333 EFTSL
Postgraduate Faculty of Engineering
Leader(s): M L Brisk
Operability of continuous processes: variation in operating conditions; use of probability functions; multiple operating cases: overdesign, additional units and intermediate storage for operability. Batch processes: batch and semicontinuous operations; Gantt charts; overlapping batches. Introduction to process control: process requirements; external disturbances; stability of the process. Control configurations: feedback, inferential, cascade, feedforward and ratio control. Control of unit operations: level, flow, pressure, heat exchanger, distillation and reactor control. Control of complete processes: systems of interacting units; intermediate storage. Safety.
