052 185 Process Dynamics and Control in Design Fall 2010 2229 SC Lecture 9 30 10 45 Tue Thur Instructor Information Office hours Professor Charlie Stanier to be announced TA Wondwossen to be announced Anbessie office 4122 SC email charles stanier uiowa edu phone 3351399 wanbessie engineering uiowa edu Course Description This senior level course is designed to enable the synthesis of chemical engineering concepts in the understanding of practical chemical processes Students will evaluate the behavior of real processes beyond idealized steady state models Students will learn how to determine system behavior under a variety of conditions This knowledge base will ultimately enable engineers to predict process performance in response to changing conditions Skills developed in this course will enable students to develop a fundamental understanding of process dynamics and feedback control This understanding ultimately will enable the students to function as industrial process engineers TEXT Chemical and Bio Process Control Third edition James B Riggs and M Nazmul Karim 2006 Ferret Publishing Lubbock Texas Supporting Texts Process Dynamics and Control 2nd ed Seborg Edgar and Mellichamp Wiley 2004 Introduction to Matlab for Engineers and Scientists Douglas Etter Prentice Hall 1996 Addtional Resources can be found on the course Icon page http icon uiowa edu Version 8 19 2010 Page 1 of 6 052 185 Process Dynamics and Control in Design Fall 2010 2229 SC Lecture 9 30 10 45 Tue Thur Course Components Course activities will include in class problem solving quizzes homework laboratory assignments and design based problems Material covered will include theory and application of process dynamics to the design of chemical process control systems mathematical models of unit operations transfer functions feedback and feed forward control stability instrumentation digital control systems computer methods including simulation and commercial software use Students will be tested on this material Active class participation is encouraged Through in class problem solving students will be increasing skill and fundamental understanding of process control concepts Quizzes will help the students reinforce strengths and identify areas for further study There will be two in class exams comprised of analytical problems based on material covered since the last exam The goals of the exams are to determine and demonstrate ability to perform good engineering analysis These exams will help students grow in confidence regarding their skills for analytical thinking with a minimal amount of supporting material Therefore these exams will be closed book The course will also include a comprehensive open book final exam The final exam period for this class is 2 15 PM Tuesday December 15 2009 The course includes training in solving differential equations using MATLAB scripts and functions and in Excel Students are expected to be proficient at specifying and solving systems of differential equations in the time domain and using transfer functions This course also includes the process control laboratory The laboratory will consist of operating and evaluating PID flow level and temperature control systems that operate using DeltaV and Labview software hardware systems The College of Engineering has licenses for Matlab that can be used in the engineering computing labs Some exercises with the software will be performed in the engineering electronic classroom 1245 SC The laboratory equipment will help students become familiar with control hardware and practical applications in control Students will perform the labs in groups Homework will be assigned on a biweekly basis as shown in the attached schedule The TA will grade the homework and laboratory assignments Late assignments will incur a 10 grade deduction for each day the assignment is past due Version 8 19 2010 Page 2 of 6 052 185 Process Dynamics and Control in Design Fall 2010 Scheduling of Labs The scheduled lab time for this course is 1 30 4 20 on Tuesdays and Thursdays There will be four labs to complete and each is associated with a written lab report While students are in the lab the teaching assistant is to be present Therefore all labs must be performed during prearranged times For students with absolute conflicts during the 1 30 4 20 time period reasonable accommodations will be made subject to the schedule constraints of the teaching assistant That said we expect that students will also make reasonable accommodations in their schedules It is the responsibility of the students to complete the labs and scheduling conflicts will not be accepted as an excuse for incomplete or late lab reports Lab reports will be returned with comments and for at least some of the labs lab groups are expected to revise the lab reports and turn them in a 2nd time Addressing critical comments effectively is an important skill that is part of the professionalism expected by engineers Grading Policy Professor Stanier will grade all exams and projects This course is not curved Absolute cutoffs for letter grades will be assigned for each exam for the sum of all the quiz scores for the sum of the homework grades and for each lab exercise For example for homework and attendance the following scale will be used 90 A 77 89 B 63 76 C 45 62 D Attendance in class participation and participation and professionalism in lab assignments and lab groups 12 Homework 20 In class 2 exams 20 Quizzes 14 Final exam 16 Lab exercises 18 Version 8 19 2010 Page 3 of 6 052 185 Process Dynamics and Control in Design Fall 2010 Course Learning Goals By the end of the course you will have Increased in knowledge and ability such that 1 you will be able to write time dependent differential
