Basics of differential equations, material and energy balance
This course introduces dynamic processes and the engineering tasks of process operations and control. Subject covers modeling the static and dynamic behavior of processes; control strategies; design of feedback, feed forward, and other control structures; and applications to process equipment.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Understand concepts of process dynamics and various forms of mathematical models to express them, including differential equations, Laplace transfer functions, and frequency response plots.
2. Develop mathematical models of chemical and processes by writing unsteady-state mass and energy balances.
3. Analyze, design and tune feedback / feedforward controllers in the context of various control strategies used to control chemical and biological processes.
4. Recognize and fit various simple empirical models that are used for designing controllers.
5. Understand and design basic control strategies.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
