University: Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava
Faculty: Faculty of Chemical and Food Technology
Course unit code: N422R1_4B
Course unit title: Process Control
Mode of delivery, planned learning activities and teaching methods:
lecture2 hours weekly (on-site method)

 
Credits allocated: 2
 
Recommended semester/trimester: Automation, Information Engineering and Management in Chemistry and Food Industry - bachelor (compulsory), 4. semester
Chemical Engineering - bachelor (compulsory), 6. semester
Chemistry, Medical Chemistry and Chemical Materials - bachelor (compulsory), 6. semester
Level of study: 1.
Prerequisites for registration: none
 
Assesment methods:
Students will write 2 tests during the semester. The sum of points for the tests is 35. Students will successfully pass the tests if they earn at least 20 points. Students also have to pass the oral exam. The maximum number of points for the oral exam is 15 and the students will pass the oral exam successfully if they earn at least 8 points. Students will get credits for the course if they successfully pass both, the written tests and the oral exam. Students are graded as follows: A 46-50 points, B 41-45 points, C 37-40 points, D 32-36 points, E 28-31 points.
 
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Students know fundamentals of modelling and control of processes in chemical and food technology. They are able to develop simple static and dynamic models of tanks, heat exchangers and chemical reactors. They are able to derive input-output process models in the form of transfer functions and to follow the process dynamic using models in the form of transfer functions. The students are able to identify the transfer functions of the controlled processes using an experimental-statistic method. They know principles of on-off and PID controllers. They are able to choose the structure of PID controllers and to tune the controller parameters. They know basic principles of measurement of process variables. They have learned basic control principles of processes in chemical and food technology. They understand the technological schemes with measurement and control loops.
