Assesment methods:
The course is evaluated as follows: 30% work during the semester, 30% written examination, and 40% oral examination (theory). Evaluation scale follows the standard scale of the faculty.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Students know advanced theory of automatic control and process control, are able to work with multi-variable systems. Students can design control of heat exchangers, distillation columns, chemical reactors and other processes of chemical technology.
Course contents:
Adaptive control (heuristic, self-tuning, MRAC)
Multivariable control (RGA analysis, decoupling control, MPC)
Process control (heat exchangers, distillation columns, chemical reactors, combustion, waste-water treatment plants)
