The course of Process Modeling is directed to provide a modern review of the model predictive control. Hence, it is important to learn the concThe course of Multivariable Process Control is directed to provide a modern review of multivariable process control engineering. Hence, it is important to learn multivariable control, decentralized control and centralized control. The objectives include equipping learners with (a) understanding of issues related to Multivariable Control strategies including fundamental concepts, loop pairing, decentralized control and decoupling control; and (b) case studies in multivariable process control system to enhance skills and techniques for tackling practical multivariable process control system design problems.
This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Computer Control and Automation
- FlexiMasters in Computer Control and Automation
On completion of the course, the learners should be able to understand t he role and relevance of multivariable control theory to the practical field of industrial process control. Specifically, they will understand the interaction analysis of multivariable processes and its uses in the design of control systems. They will understand various controller-tuning methodologies applied to the multivariable control systems. They will become aware of different practical control strategies as well as advanced control techniques that are specifically suited for the multivariable processes. Extensive multivariable control system simulation projects and case studies will provide the students with an insight into the actual application of multivariable control techniques in the industry processes.
