Nonlinear Model-Based Control: Using First-Principles Models in Process Control

ISA Publications meets the needs of automation and control professionals worldwide by offering print and online technical resources including print books, digital books, magazines, journals, newsletters, software, technical papers, proceedings, and standards. 



By R. Russell Rhinehart

In this new book by author Russell Rhinehart, readers discover how first-principles models can be used in control applications to achieve desired controlled variable trajectories and ensure continuity and compatibility across process management operations.

Rhinehart explains four control techniques using first-principles models that have been credibly demonstrated for industrial practice. The author provides an in-depth discovery of each model, listing the pros and cons of each. This book is an excellent resource for practicing engineers wanting to solve nonlinearity issues, advanced control students, and those considering providing products that perform model-based control.
