Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Students know fundamentals of modelling and control of processes in chemical and food technology. They are able to develop simple models of tanks, heat exchangers and chemical reactors using experimental-statistic methods. They know principles of on-off and PID controllers. They are able to choose the structure of PID controllers and to tune the controller parameters. They have learned basic control principles of processes in chemical and food technology. They understand the technological schemes with measurement and control loops.
