Control de Procesos
The Process Control book seeks to provide a fundamental theoretical basis in this vital area of knowledge, with emphasis on topics that are useful for students, professionals, and specialists. Also, various applications and guidelines on their practical use and simple approaches are presented to solve engineering problems with the rigor of various mathematical tools.
The book contains ten chapters: the first deals with conceptual aspects, necessary for understanding the rest of the text; the second presents fundamental aspects of process modeling; the third is related to PID controllers; the fourth refers to the tuning of the PID controllers; the fifth describes the control schemes for the rejection of disturbances; the sixth shows control schemes for the compensation of non-minimum phase systems, basically systems with delay and systems with the inverse response; in the seventh, there is a presentation on multivariate systems; the eighth concisely describes model-based predictive controllers; the ninth makes a presentation of computational techniques and intelligent optimization; and, finally, in the tenth section, he describes a proposal for control by sliding modes that can be used for chemical processes.
At the end of each chapter, a brief biography of some characters who have made contributions in the Process Control area is added as a tribute to those who, through their dedication, contributed to the academic and industrial advancement in this field.
