An Introduction to Process Control for Scientists, Chemists and Pharmacists

The course will provide an overview of closed loop process control for scientists and engineers that have no background in process control and automation. Sufficient knowledge will be provided to allow delegates to appreciate the scope of process control techniques and the challenges that need to be considered when implementing process control strategies within a PAT and QbD environment. The topics will include classical feedback control with process examples; feedforward and inferential control; multi-loop control; analytical feedback control; and will finish with a brief overview of more advanced control systems now being applied. Industrial case studies will be used.
