Myke has over 35 years experience in the practical application of process control. His early career was spent with ICI and Esso. For almost 30 years he has been an independent consultant working for many of the world’s leading companies. He has taught process control to over 2,000 engineers. Course delegates have the opportunity to discuss, with Myke, application of the technology to their own process. Most are able to return to their plant and make an immediate impact on its performance. Myke can similarly offer advice on how larger projects should be progressed and which vendors and technologies should be considered.

PROCESS CONTROL : A PRACTICAL APPROACH

This book was developed from Whitehouse Consulting’s well-known training courses. It presents process control design techniques that have an immediate practical application. The theory, originating in the academic world and found daunting by most control engineers, is kept to a minimum.
The book takes a back-to-basics approach. The use of proprietary MPC packages is widespread. Control engineers have invested thousands of man-hours in the necessary plant testing and commissioning. Improving the basic controls is not usually an option once the MPC is in place. Thus poor basic control remains the status quo and becomes the accepted standard to the point where it is not addressed even when the opportunity presents itself. This book raises the standard of what might be expected from the performance of all controllers.
The book is valuable not only to those involved in the implementation of process control but to others, such as process and mechanical engineers, who are involved in the design or support of process plant.
