3. “Advanced Process Control” by Cecil Smith

Book Review: This book bridges the gap that exists between basic control configurations and model predictive control. This book is suitable for the loops whose performance has a direct impact on plant economics and product quality. The book goes beyond simple feedback and cascade to improve the control performance. The book also discusses various economic aspects of the application of advanced control technologies.

4. “Advanced Process Identification and Control” by K Najim

“Advanced Process Identification and Control” Book Review: The inference of the book is advanced process modeling. The book is of use to both undergraduate and postgraduate level students of the field. The book also deals with the identification, prediction, and parameter estimation for the implementation and analysis of industrial systems. Wide range applications for linear and nonlinear systems are also provided. A few other concepts involved are the design of generalized predictive controllers (GPCs), and the control of multivariable systems.

5. “Industrial Process Control Systems” by Patrick Fardo

“Industrial Process Control Systems” Book Review: The book attempts to introduce industrial process control and its applications. The book begins by talking about operating system, process control concepts. Further the book dives into pressure systems, thermal systems, level determining systems, flow process systems. The last sections of the book deals with analytical process systems, microprocessor systems, automated processes and robotic systems.

6. “Predictive Process Control of Crowded Particulate Suspensions: Applied to Ceramic Manufacturing” by Dinger Funk

“Predictive Process Control of Crowded Particulate Suspensions: Applied to Ceramic Manufacturing” Book Review: The main idea of the book revolves around various concepts of Predictive Process Control. The contents of the book are spread over a total of 47 chapters. The well explained chapters provide knowledge to the reader in predictive process, particle physics, and Rheology. The first few chapters introduce the reader to the predictive process control and key concepts of particle physics. As we move further, the concepts become more complex such as ‘The particle crowding interface’. The last chapters of the book deal with ceramic forming processes and rheology broadly.


“Process Control : A Practical Approach” Book Review: The book covers key aspects of designing and maintaining process control applications. The book is of 3 broad parts. First part is the basic control after which the book talks about advanced regulatory control. The last section of the book describes multivariable control. Apart from this the book also talks about various design methods, techniques with wide ranging applications, algorithms of distributed control systems. Complex mathematical derivations are provided at the end of each chapter.

9. “Introduction To Process Control” by Romagnoli Palazoglu

“Introduction to Process Control” Book Review: The book provides an overview of the traditional topics as well as industry-based process control. ‘Continuing problem’ approach of the book while adding new concepts and strategies to the example helps the readers in a better understanding of the subject. The fully realized system is implemented using MATLAB- a simulation. The book provides an overview of applications of concepts of process control. The book also talks about data processing along with process monitoring as integral parts of overall control system architecture.

10. “Data-driven Methods for Fault Detection and Diagnosis in Chemical Processes” by Russell Evan L

“Data-driven Methods for Fault Detection and Diagnosis in Chemical Processes” Book Review: The book presents both theoretical and practical facets of data driven process monitoring. A few of the topics broadly include Principal component analysis, Fisher discriminant analysis, Partial least squares, Canonical variate analysis. The book provides knowledge on applications of all the process monitoring techniques, advantages and disadvantages. This enables the reader to select the required technique according to the issue at hand. The contents of the book are written in 11 chapters. The book starts with an introduction to the field and then proceeds to describe all the aforementioned topics. The book concludes with results and discussion and lastly gives an overview of analytical and knowledge based approaches.
