Process Control introduces an rising sector in technique regulate – keep an eye on process research and layout in response to the concept that of passive platforms. Passive platforms are a category of strategies that fritter away specific sorts of actual or digital strength, outlined via Lyapunov-like features. Passivity and linked balance stipulations shape one of many cornerstones up to speed conception and feature lately started to be utilized in approach keep an eye on. outlined as an input-output estate, the idea that of passivity implies balance stipulations for interconnected platforms. Passive structures are minimal section and hence really easy to regulate through output suggestions, no matter if they're hugely nonlinear and matched. for this reason, the passivity framework can be utilized in approach input-output controllability research in addition to regulate layout. the following, the idea that of passive platforms is additionally associated with procedure thermodynamics to supply procedure engineers with insights into the actual bases of the above results.
In this booklet, passivity-based advancements within the parts of sturdy method keep watch over, decentralized regulate, fault tolerant keep an eye on, technique controllability research and nonlinear technique keep an eye on are addressed systematically for the 1st time. Written for the commercial, engineering and educational groups, the emphasis is put on effects that improve perception and instinct. software concerns are illustrated via case reports in all of the major chapters. MATLAB® exercises for chosen examples and a library of features that enforce the procedure research and regulate layout tools constructed in Process Control may be downloaded from springer.com. This publication provides the reader with either the conceptual framework and sensible instruments for passivity-based process research and control.
