Prerequisite
Students are expected to have a background in mathematics through differential equations, Laplace transformation, material and energy balance concepts, and unit operations.
Rationale
The main objective of this subject is to cover basics of process control and the instrumentation used in industries. The process control part begins with the introductory concepts, and mathematical modeling and its use for control purposes. Subsequently, the dynamic behavior of chemical processes will be discussed. This course goes deeper into the design of feedback controllers. A special emphasis will be placed on the controller tuning and stability analysis. The instrumentation part will elaborate the valve characteristics along with the working principle, specifications, design and selection aspects of various measuring instruments.
Course Outcome
At the end of this course students will gain knowledge on
1. Process modeling fundamentals: Differential equation models, Laplace transforms, linearization,idealized dynamic behavior, transfer functions, block diagram, and process optimization.
2. Control system context: safety, environmental concerns, product quality, and economical operation,instrumentation (valves, sensors, transmitters, and controllers).
3. Evaluate stability, frequency response, and other characteristics relevant to process control.
At the end of the course students will be able to
1. Think critically and make decisions, even if information is incomplete.
2. Analyze and solve problems in process systems – in particular those dealing with equipment performance, fluid flow, and material and energy balances.
3. Understand the fundamental principles of equipment operation so they will know not just how equipment is operated but why it is operated that way

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
