The unit concentrates on industrial process dynamics and control. The fundamentals of dynamic systems analysis and controller design studied in Control Systems 1 are built upon to include empirical modelling, and enhanced single loop control strategies. Specific topics that will be covered include: introduction to process control, theoretical models of processes, dynamic response characteristics of systems, development of empirical dynamic models from process data, feedback controllers, PID controller design, tuning and troubleshooting, frequency response analysis (Bode diagrams and Nyquist diagrams), and control system design based on frequency response methods (Bode- and Nyquist-inspired techniques).

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.

1. Analyse complex dynamic systems, and develop empirical models from process data.
2. Design controllers in the time and frequency domains.
3. Implement the most common control strategies applied in the process industry.
4. Design, tune and troubleshoot practical implementations of industrial PID controllers.
5. Communicate how relevant applied research may inform the modern practice of process control engineering.
