Using Simulation Module, PCLAB, for Steady State Disturbance Sensitivity Analysis in Process Control
Ali, Emad; Idriss, Arimiyawo
Chemical Engineering Education, v43 n1 p51-57 Win 2009
Recently, chemical engineering education moves towards utilizing simulation soft wares to enhance the learning process especially in the field of process control. These training simulators provide interactive learning through visualization and practicing which will bridge the gap between the theoretical abstraction of textbooks and the demonstrative nature of the laboratory. In this paper, Process Control Laboratory (PCLAB) which is based on MATLAB[R] platform is presented as a simulation tool for process control design and analysis. In fact, one of these modules namely the Steady State Disturbance Sensitivity Analysis (SSDSA) is presented. The SSDSA method is demonstrated via a step-by-step procedure and its usefulness is emphasized.
