With resources at a premium, and ecological concerns paramount,the need for clean, efficient and low-cost processes is one of themost critical challenges facing chemical engineers. The ability tocontrol these processes, optimizing one, two or several variableshas the potential to make more substantial savings in time, moneyand resources than any other single factor.   

Building on the success of the previous editions, this new thirdedition of A Real-Time Approach to Process Control employsboth real industry practice and process control education withoutthe use of complex or highly mathematical techniques, providing amore practical and applied approach.

Updated throughout, this edition:

•            Includes a brand new chapter on Model predictive Control (MPC)

•            Now includes wireless and web-based technologies

•            Covers bio-related systems

•            Details the new multivariable control measure developed by theauthors

•            Includes PowerPoint slides and solutions to Workshop problems onthe accompanying website: http://www.wiley.com/go/svrcek-real-time-3e


From the reviews of previous editions:

“Would appeal to practising engineers due to its“hands on” feel for the subject matter. But moreimportantly, the authors present these concepts as fundamentals ofchemical engineering, in a way that is consistent with howprofessor teach at the universities.” –ChemicalEngineering Process (CEP)

“The book has been beautifully crafted”–Engineering Subject Centre

“Provides a refreshing approach to the presentation ofprocess analysis and control”  –The ChemicalEngineer
