## Topic outline

• ### General

 Lecturer : Dr. Mohd Kamaruddin bin Abd Hamid Semester : Semester 2 2012/13

Synopsis:

This course covers the fundamentals of dynamic process modelling, dynamic process process behaviours and process control. In this course, more concentration will be given to lumped parameter systems modelling. Process will be modelled using first principles and Laplace transform will be used to solve the linear differential equations to analyze the dynamic behaviour of the systems.

Learning Outcomes:

At the end of this course, you will be able to:
1. Identify manual, feedback, feedforward and cascade control systems for commonly controlled process variables.
2. Derive time domain dynamic models and Laplace domain input-output models for chemical processes.
3. Analyze the dynamic behaviours of first order, second order and higher order systems.
