Course: Advanced process control (module TKP10, PhD-course KP8115)
For overview of the course: see at the end


2015: The course is taught by Johannes Jäschke. Please contact him for information,


See here for papers by S. Skogestad on plantwide control:


Course overview:

This is a module (half a normal course) offered to the 5th year students at NTNU. 
It is taught every autumn, starting in late August.

1. Optimal operation (economics) and degrees of freedom
2. What should we control from an economic point of view? (including self-optimizing control)
3. Inventory control, including location of throughput manipulator
4. Base layer control (regulatory layer; stabilizing control)
5. Tuning of PID controllers
6. Multivariable control: Interactions, decentralized control, practical use of MPC



The lectures form the basis for two courses:

1. TKP10  Process Control, Advanced Course. Master specialization module  (3.75 EDU; must be taken together with another 3.75 EDU module to get full course)

2. KP8115 Advanced process control. PhD course (7.5 ECU)


1. TKP10  Process Control, Advanced Course (before 2009: TKP8 = TTK18)

2. Ph.D. course KP 8115 - Advanced process control (7.5 ECU)
Lecturer: Sigurd Skogestad 

The Ph.D. course and the 5th year Master specilization ("emnemodul") have
an initial common part, but the Ph.D. course has additional topics and
a larger emphasis on theory.
