This book explores the main practical methods and algorithms currently available for designing industrial process control, following concepts such as “embedded optimization” and “low-cost automation”. It also offers specialists in Industrial Automation the most up-to-date approaches and techniques for designing digital control systems and provides practical applications that are significant in the industrial domain.
Process Control Design for Industrial Applications presents diverse case studies which demonstrate how the application of the automatic control solutions discussed in this book can significantly improve industrial processes in the iron and steel industry, in petrochemical processes or in the energy industry.
Further to this, for implementation, improved control algorithms are recommended using advanced adaptive, robust or predictive strategies to maintain nominal performances in a real industrial setting. The authors propose corresponding optimization solutions to exploit technological processes in order to increase the profit of a company.
