TKP10 Process Control, Advanced Course. Autumn 2016

The first lecture will be given on Monday 22.08,2016 from 14-16 in the meeting room on Kjemiblokk 4, second floor (K4-4.205).

We will also discuss the day and time for the lectures this autumn.

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



In principle, the grade is based on an oral examination, but in practise it will be based on this:
	1. Short written exam (3 hours) 80%
        2. Exercises 20% 
        3. In some cases there could be an oral discussion to clarify the final grade

Note that the grade wil be given i % as it counts only 50% for the overall grade



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.
