Process Modelling for Control
Lieferbar innerhalb von 2-3 Tagen
BeschreibungProcess Modelling for Control concentrates on the modelling steps underlying a successful control design, answering questions like: How should I carry out the identification of my process to obtain a good model? How can I assess the quality of a model before to using it in control design? How can I ensure that a controller will stabilise a real process well enough before implementation? What is the most efficient method of order reduction to simplify the implementation of high-order controllers? System identification, model/controller validation and order reduction are studied in a common framework. Detailed worked examples, representative of various industrial applications, are given. This monograph uses mathematics convenient to researchers interested in real applications and to practising engineers interested in control theory. It enables control engineers to improve their methods and provides academics and graduate students with an all-round view of recent results in modelling for control. Many process control books focus on control design techniques, taking the construction of a process model for granted. Process Modelling for Control concentrates on the modelling steps underlying a successful design, answering questions like: How should I carry out the identification of my process in order to obtain a good model? How can I assess the quality of a model with a view to using it in control design? How can I ensure that a controller will stabilise a real process sufficiently well before implementation? What is the most efficient method of order reduction to facilitate the implementation of high-order controllers? Different tools, namely system identification, model/controller validation and order reduction are studied in a framework with a common basis: closed-loop identification with a controller that is close to optimal will deliver models with bias and variance errors ideally tuned for control design. As a result, rules are derived, applying to all the methods, that provide the practitioner with a clear way forward despite the apparently unconnected nature of the modelling tools. Detailed worked examples, representative of various industrial applications, are given: control of a mechanically flexible structure; a chemical process; and a nuclear power plant. Process Modelling for Control uses mathematics of an intermediate level convenient to researchers with an interest in real applications and to practising control engineers interested in control theory. It will enable working control engineers to improve their methods and will provide academics and graduate students with an all-round view of recent results in modelling for control.

Some Final Words
PortraitDoctor Codrons is ideally suited to authorship in the Advances in Industrial Control Series having both academic and industrial experience. He has worked for the large French electricity supply company Électricité de France and then a four-and-a-half-year academic appointment at the Université Catholique de Louvain studying control-oriented system modelling techniques. He now works for the research arm of the Belgian national supplier as a project leader in process control.
PressestimmenFrom the reviews:
"This book is unique in that it presents the first comprehensive study on identification of models for robust control design and validation. ... Thus, the target audience for this book is mostly academics in the control field. ... The book presents several numerical examples to illustrate the topics discussed and to confirm expected results. In general, I found the examples to be excellent in referring to practical situations that illustrate the theoretical arguments presented in the book." (Hector M. Budman, IEEE Control Systems Magazine, Vol. 27, June, 2007)
