Tuning PI controllers for integrator/dead time processes
Chien and Fruehauf proposed an internal model control (IMC) approach to selecting the tuning constants for a PI controller in a process consisting of a pure integrator and a dead time. The onlyExpand

Analysis of Control Structures for Reaction/Separation/Recycle Processes with Second-Order Reactions
This work analyzes the effect of the process design on control structure for a system with a reactor, two distillation columns, and two recycle streams. The reaction A + B → C occurs in a reactor,Expand
