Biography: Kal Renganathan Sharma has received his B.Tech., M.S.
and Ph.D degrees in chemical engineering and has underwent post doctoral
training. He is a prolific author with 740 publications: 14 Books, 7 Book-Chapters,
555 Conference Papers, 51 Journal Articles and 113 other presentations. He has
instructed 2930 students at HBCUs, deemed universities in India and
universities. His work has been cited in the Encyclopedia of Polymer Science
and Technology, Wikipedia in Portuguese amongst 330 citations. He is a Fellow
of Indian Chemical Society and is a member of the editorial board of seven
journals. His articles in Journal of Encapsulation and Adsorption Sciences has
been downloaded more than 3383 times. He has held high level positions in
academia and has industrial experience.
Audience: AIChE, American Institute of Chemical Engineers, New York, NY recently
celebrated their centennial or 100th anniversary in 2008. Both
the chemical process industry and the industrial controls market size are increasing.
Process Control as a required course in the chemical engineering degree
plan in a number of US universities came out in the late 60s or 70s. I instruct
CHEG 4033 Process Dynamics and Control, MCEG 3073 Automatic Controls and MCEG
3193 Introduction to Robotics, CHEG 3043 Equilibrium Staged Separations, ELMT
2043 Industrial Electronics etc. I have served as the chairman of
Continuous Mass Club: Technical Community of Monstanto Minichapter between
1990-1993. This book is a natural outgrowth of these scholarly and research
activities. A modern textbook is proposed that keeps pace with the
progress in personal computing resources available to the student these days.
Emphasis is placed on industrial application over rosy predictions. For instance, ideal
PID control, proportional integral derivative control is not physically
realizable. The competition of this book has a entire chapter devoted to PID
control. Filters have to be added and then it is longer PID, it becomes FPID,
filtered PID control! Discussions on overshoot is in excess of its
occurrence in real applications. A careful scrutiny of overshoot can lead
to the conclusion that it is more a mathematical artifact and less a
engineering possibility It can be shown that overshoot per se violates second
law of thermodynamics.. This book is more focused on the applications
rather than on tuning and elloborate algebra. Calculus, Laplace transforms and
other mathematical methods are used when necessary. A entire chapter is devoted
to pharmacokinetic studies. Discussions on life systems draws the student
attention more than hypothetical mathematical exercises. A entire chapter
is devoted to control of robots. Advances made in nanorobots are also discussed
in a separate chapter. Separate Chapters are devoted to mathematical
models and process dynamics.
