CBE 30338 - Section 01: Chemical Process Control (CRN 20651)

Course Description:
While the idealization of chemical processes is that they are operated at steady-state, they are in fact usually dynamic (unsteady state). Process feed compositions may change slightly, ambient conditions may change, pipe leaks may develop, steam pressures may vary, etc. There are any number of such disturbances that may cause the process to deviate from its desired steady-state. In some cases, such deviations may be catastrophic, in other cases a severe loss of product quality may be caused. Thus process control devices are installed that detect deviations from the desired steady-state and attempt to correct them. In this course, students will be introduced to the analysis of chemical process dynamics, and to the design and analysis of process control systems.
