Introduction to Process Control - Second Edition

The purpose of this publication is to engage students and professionals into Process Controls basics. It provides a bridge between the traditional view of process control and the current, expanded role by integrating conventional topics with a broader perspective of more integrated process operation, control, and information systems. Updating and expanding the content of its predecessor, this second edition addresses issues in today’s teaching of process control.
