## Teaching Undergrad CHE 576 & 448

Che 576 Intermediate Proces Control

Course Objective:

The main objective of this course is to provide students with advanced knowledge on modern control techniques and computer based process control. Upon completion of this course, the students should be able to perform design, tuning  and analysis of advanced computer control systems. Specifically, we will address the following objectives:

1.  Development of discrete-time dynamic models
2.  Analysis of discrete transfer functions
3.  State space control methods
4. Design of optimal linear quadratic controllers
5. Design of advanced model predictive controllers
6. Implementation of computer control systems on realistic processes (Project included)

The course NOTES CHE 576W2014-NOTES contain  visual modules (short movies) that are supplemental to the lectures. For example, the following movie describes the modelling of the two tanks system: Che 448 Process Control for Mechanical Engineers
