Control engineering [Lecture notes]
Boxtel, A.J.B. van \ Ooteghem, R.J.C. van \ 2014
controllers - control engineering - control systems - control theory

Besides a correct design or layout, good control systems are essential to guarantee that production systems operate and produce according the desired specifications. This course gives an introduction to classical and modern control engineering approaches and discusses the standard methods and tools that are usually applied. The methods discussed in the course have a very wide application area. Examples are greenhouse climate, bioreactors, food production, robotics, environmental systems etc. This makes that the course fits in the curricula of several studies. The course starts with a refresher on dynamic models of systems represented by differential equations. These differential equations will be solved by transformation to the Laplace domain. The system representation in the Laplace domain by transfer functions offers several new possibilities to interpret and to analyse the characteristics of systems and to design controllers. Classical control is discussed and analysed for the PID controller family. Controller tuning, stability and performance are central items to qualify the controllers, and methods to find these qualifications are introduced (response times, pole placement, root-locus and frequency response). Model predictive control is discussed as a representative of the modern control approaches. The role of sampled information, the time horizons and performance optimisation are considered.

System identification : an introduction [Monograph]
Keesman, K.J. \ cop. 2011
engineering - control - image processing - speech - control theory - mechatronics - System identification

System Identification shows the student reader how to approach the system identification problem in a systematic fashion. The process is divided into three basic steps: experimental design and data collection; model structure selection and parameter estimation; and model validation, each of which is the subject of one or more parts of the text. Following an introduction on system theory, particularly in relation to model representation and model properties, the book contains four parts covering: • data-based identification – non-parametric methods for use when prior system knowledge is very limited; • time-invariant identification for systems with constant parameters; • time-varying systems identification, primarily with recursive estimation techniques; and • model validation methods. A fifth part, composed of appendices, covers the various aspects of the underlying mathematics needed to begin using the text. The book uses essentially semi-physical or gray-box modeling methods although data-based, transfer-function system descriptions are also introduced. The approach is problem-based rather than rigorously mathematical. The use of finite input–output data is demonstrated for frequency- and time-domain identification in static, dynamic, linear, nonlinear, time-invariant and time-varying systems. Simple examples are used to show readers how to perform and emulate the identification steps involved in various control design methods with more complex illustrations derived from real physical, chemical and biological applications being used to demonstrate the practical applicability of the methods described.

Transport phenomena [Monograph] - 2nd rev. edTable of contents
Bird, R.B. \ Stewart, W.E. \ Lightfoot, E.N. \ cop. 2007
transport processes - hydrodynamics - heat transfer - mass transfer - textbooks

Evolution of transport phenomena has been so rapid and extensive that complete coverage is not possible. While the authors have included many representative examples, the main emphasis has, of necessity, been on the fundamental aspects o this field. Moreover, they have found in discussions with colleagues that transport phenomena is thaught in a variety of ways and at several different levels. Enough material has been included for two courses, one introductory and one advanced.

The biobased economy : biofuels, materials and chemicals in the post-oil era [Monograph]Companion website
Langeveld, H. \ Sanders, J. \ 2010
sustainability - biomass - energy conversion - economic policy - industrialization - biofuels - biobased economy - bioenergy - bioplastics - Biomass energy Economic aspects - Biomass energy industries - Energy development - Energy policy Economic aspects - Sustainable development

The impending threats of catastrophic climate change and peak oil are driving our society towards increased use of biomass for energy, chemical compounds and other materrials - the beginnings of a biobased economy. As alternative development models for the biobased economy emerge, we need to determine potential applications, their perspectives and possible impacts as well as policies that can steer technological and market development in such a way that our objectives are met. Currently, it is still far from clear what will be the most sustainable routes to follow, which technologies should be included and how their development will affect, and be affected by, research, public opinion and policy and market forces.

products - life cycle - methodology - environment - environmental impact - waste management - product development - textbooks - life cycle assessment

Life cycle assessment (LCA) is the assessment of the environmental impact of a product throughout its life cycle. The holistic perspective that LCA provides on the environmental performance of products has made it a central concept for both environmental management in industry and environmental policy-making in public government.
