Example problem
In a chemical process control system, it is valuable to control the chemical composition of
the product. To do so, a measurement of the composition can be obtained by using an
infrared stream analyzer, as
shown in Figure. The valve on the additive stream may be controlled.

Control Systems
In its modern usage, automation can be defined as a technology that uses programmed
commands to operate a given process, combined with feedback of information to
determine that the commands have been properly executed.

Automation is often used for processes that were previously operated by humans. When
automated, the process can operate without human assistance or interference. In fact,
most automated systems are capable of performing their functions with greater accuracy
and precision, and in less time, than humans are able to do.
Control systems
The control of power plants for minimum waste emission has become increasingly
important. The modern, large-capacity plants, which exceed several hundred megawatts,
require automatic control systems that account for the interrelationship of the process
variables and optimum power production. It is common to have 90 or more manipulated
variables under coordinated control.

A simplified model showing several of the important control variables of a large boiler-
generator system is shown in Figure. This is an example of the importance of measuring
many variables, such as pressure and oxygen, to provide information to the computer for
control calculations.

In summary, the approach to dynamic system modeling can be listed as follows:
1. Define the system and its components
2. Formulate the mathematical model and fundamental necessary assumptions based on basic
3. Obtain the differential equation representing the mathematical model
4. Solve the equations for the desired output variables
5. Examine the solutions and the assumptions
6. If necessary, reanalyze or redesign
