Process Control Engineering II (ENG322)
|Organisational Unit||Engineering and Energy|
|Teaching Timetables||Murdoch S2
|Description||This unit introduces further concepts in control design and implementation. A number of control design methodologies will be studied as part of this unit and their implementation into Engineering facilities and a complex simulation case study will be investigated. Important issues around modelling, performance, efficiency and safety of operation are integrated into the project. Communication and team work are important attributes that students would be expected to develop.|
|Unit Learning Outcomes||At the completion of this unit, students should have a working knowledge of the following areas:
1. Modelling of non-linear process,
2. Mathematical and computer-based (MATLAB and Toolboxes) for analysis of dynamic systems,
3. Mathematical and computer-based (MATLAB and Toolboxes) for steady state optimisation,
4. Control System Design for Non-linear Processes.
|Timetabled Learning Activities||Lectures: 1 x 2 hours per week; workshop 1 x 2 hours per week; laboratory: 1 x 4 hours per week (for 7 weeks).
Laboratory to be conducted in Pilot Plant EE2.009/10.
|Unit Learning Experiences|
|Other Learning Experiences||The specialised instrumentation and control facility (IC laboratory) can be used 24/7. Students are encouraged to use the facility to learn, build and practise the required computer based skills and knowledge. The Pilot Plant (EE2.009/10) facility will be used for practising control design and implementation for seven weeks.|
|Assessment||Reports and Presentations: 30%
Final examination: 30%
|Prerequisites||ENG298/ENG241 Principles of Process Engineering; ENG294 Discrete Time Systems and ENG299/ENG267 Control System and Process Dynamics.|

|Internet Access Requirements||Murdoch units normally include an online component comprising materials, discussions, lecture recordings and assessment activities. All students, regardless of their location or mode of study, need to have access to and be able to use computing devices with browsing capability and a connection to the Internet via Broadband (Cable, ADSL or Mobile) or Wireless. The Internet connection should be readily available and allow large amounts of data to be streamed or downloaded (approximately 100MB per lecture recording). Students also need to be able to enter into online discussions and submit assignments online.|
