4 points, SCA Band 2, 0.0833333 EFTSL

Postgraduate Faculty of Engineering

Leader(s): M L Brisk


Clayton Second semester 2009 (Off-campus)


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.
