EMAN403 Linear Systems and Control Theory

The concept of a system, Laplace transforms, data sampling. Process simulation. Control theory, and numerical methods for design, operation and control of energy systems.

The purpose of this paper is to provide an introduction to process simulation and control. We will discuss control theory and application, instrumentation and equipment selection, dynamic simulation and numerical methods for design, operation and control of engineering processes and energy systems.
