The Use of the Software MATLAB To Improve Chemical Engineering Education.
Damatto, T.; Maegava, L. M.; Filho, R. Maciel
In all the Brazilian Universities involved with the project "Prodenge-Reenge", the main objective is to improve teaching and learning procedures for the engineering disciplines. The Chemical Engineering College of Campinas State University focused its effort on the use of engineering softwares. The work developed by this project has allowed all Chemical Engineering undergraduates to deal with commercial softwares which make engineering calculations and estimates easier. The following works aids Chemical Engineering Process Simulation and Control improvement through the use of the commercial software MATLAB. The main concern is to develop some useful case studies which are able to bring out the important characteristics for the control structure design and implementation. Beyond the process simulation and control application, the user has the main concepts related to control theory readily available in an interactive fashion. The present work has been divided in two parts. The first one consists of Process Control fundamental theory so that an undergraduate can either review or have a first contact with the subject. The second part of the work is an ideal binary distillation column study where some important aspects of the control theory have been implemented. (Author)
