Process Simulation – Part 4

In my March 14, 21, and 28th postings I summarized some of the basics associated with design and implementation of process simulation that are addressed in the book Control Loop Foundation – Batch and Continuous Processes. Simulations based on duplicating the process step response may be effectively used for operator training and control system check. …

Process Characterization – Integrating Process

In some cases, a step change in a process input will result in the process output changing continuously. A process that exhibits such a response is known as an integrating process. As part of the chapter on process characterization in Chapter 9 of Control Loop Foundation, we address integrating process response. In the process industry, …
