Monitoring and controlling of a plant’s process variables can be carried
out using the computer via software in the instrumentation and control industry.
Control systems oil and gas industries are designed using the conventional
approach, as opposed to the modern control approach commonly used in
aerospace industries, thus controller qualities such as robustness, optimality and
adaptivity could have been overlooked. This project aims to theoretically apply
the concepts of modern control engineering in plant process control systems. The
entire project involves understanding process control and state space, grasping the
concept of system identification and mastering the functions of MATLAB and
Simulink for controller and observer design and simulation. Extensive utilization
of MATLAB and Simulink were involved in the several experiments and
simulations that were carried out and run. Results from this project indicate the
practicality of modern control in plant process control systems. This project
successfully achieved the theoretical implementation of modern control
engineering in plant process control systems, paving way for a possible design of
a new controller and observer strategy that are robust, optimal and adaptive via
modern control approach.
