DEPARTMENT OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING University of California, Santa Barbara ChE 152B Winter, 2010 Process Dynamics and Control Laboratory Organization The laboratory is equipped with a 4-tank experiment that demonstrates the main features of large-scale equipment in transient operation. The tank system is fully instrumented for measurement of relevant process variables such as liquid flow rates, levels, and power inputs. Matlab is used to regulate the power inputs to the pumps. Differential pressure sensors are used to measure the tank levels. In addition, we have introduced a new experiment: the inverted pendulum. While the main physical principles are mechanical in nature, the control issues are common to both chemical and mechanical engineering, and include multivariable control, unstable systems stabilization, process modeling, and others. At the end of the two-quarter ChE 152 sequence you should be familiar with procedures for obtaining theoretical and experimental process dynamics. You will also
