Steam utility systems are prevalent in almost all manufacturing complexes, as well as in many other commercial systems (including hospitals, universities, etc.). Since these systems are so important and have been in existence for many years, the control strategies are reasonably advanced. In this learning module, the instructors and students can choose their preferred control system design technique for an example steam drum system.
The sections of this module are as follows:
M9.2 Process Model
M9.3 Feedback Controller Design
M9.4 Feed-Forward Controller Design
M9.5 Three-Mode Level Control
