Chapter
Part of the Dimensions of Science book series (DIMOSCI)

Abstract

The automatic control of processes is widespread throughout the whole of industry and many of today’s process operators sit at a computer console checking that many tens of controllers are working satisfactorily. Nevertheless it is worth standing back to ask basic questions concerning the nature of a single control loop such as that shown in figure 8.1 for the cooling of a batch reactor or the one in figure 8.1 for the heating of a stirred vessel with through-flow. Thus the opening sections will be an elementary introduction to process control.
