EB 4510 - Process Design and Control

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
The course provides a comprehensive training on industrial bio process control. Process control hardware and troubleshooting, dynamic modeling, controller tuning and control of processes is covered in detail. P, PI and PID controllers are analyzed along with advanced control strategies. The course also provides an introduction to the design and evaluation of complex, multistep industrial scale biomolecular processes. (prereq: EB 3530 , EB 3560 )
