Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Project represents individual student work to solve control of laboratory processes in chemical and biochemical technologies. Student has to combine knowledge from various subjects in engineering study. He studies a selected laboratory process, designs and simulates its behaviour and verifies at the actual plant. In conclusions, forms results and presents them.
Prerequisites for registration:
Course contents:
Literature review about selected process
Model design
Measurement of experimental results on laboratory process
Parameter estimation and improvement of the model
Process simulations, design of observer and control
Verification of control on laboratory process
Presentation of results
