    Basic and Advanced Regulatory Control: System Design and Applications, Third Edition

    By Harold L. Wade



    This intermediate-level book explains the application of basic and advanced regulatory control strategies for the wet process industries. Rather than mathematical systems theory, the book builds upon the engineer or technician's own experience and knowledge of processes to demonstrate the application of successful control strategies.

    Following a summarization of the characteristics of processes and feedback control loops, attention is given to the application of advanced regulatory control (ARC) strategies to provide significant economic benefit. The latter portion of the book gives an overview of the next level of control, advanced process control (APC). New topics include an expanded coverage of set-point weighting controllers, an amplified discussion of valve problems, a control algorithm for dead-time processes, expanded coverage of cross-limiting control systems, and a new heuristic procedure for improving "as-found" tuning. End of chapter exercises have been added. Suitable for the beginning or experienced engineer or technician.
