Model-based Process Supervision: A Bond Graph Approach (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


This book provides control engineers and workers in industrial and academic research establishments interested in process engineering with a means to build up a practical and functional supervisory control environment and to use sophisticated models to get the best use out of their process data. Several applications to academic and small-scale-industrial processes are discussed and the development of a supervision platform for an industrial plant is presented.

Belkacem Ould Bouamama graduated in 1982 from the Institut National des Hydrocarbures et de la Chimie Boumerdes (INHC) in Process Control. He received his Ph.D. degree in 1987 from Goubkine Institute of Petroleum and Gas of Moscow. From 1988 to 1994, he was researcher and head of department of automatic control at INHC. From 1994 to 2000, he was an associate professor in control engineering at the Universite des Sciences et Technolgies de Lille (France) and since then he has been a full professor at Ecole Polytechnique de Lille. Currently he heads the inter-disciplinary group on Fault Detection and Isolation using Bond Graph models at the Laboratoire d'Automatique, Genie Informatique & Signal, Lille, France. The main thrust of the research concerns modelling and monitoring of process engineering using a bond graph approach. Their application domains are mainly nuclear power plants, chemical and petrochemical processes. . He is the author of several international publications in this area and the co-author of three books in bond graph modelling and monitoring. He has written a book Modeling and Simulation in Thermal and Chemical Engineering published by Springer Verlag (3-540-66388-6). Arun Kumar Samantaray graduated in 1989 from the College of Engineering and Technology (CET) in Mechanical Engineering. He received the masters degree in Dynamics and Contol and PhD degree in Mehanical Engineering (Rotor Dynamics) from the Indian Institute of Technology-Kharagpur, in 1991 and 1996, respectively. From 1996 to 2001, he worked as the Project Manager at the HighTech Consultants. From 2001 to 2004, he was a research scientist at Universite des Sciences et Technologies de Lille (France) and thereafter; he has been an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. He is an author of bond graph modelling software SYMBOLS and also the editor-in-chief of the bond graph forum at He is the new co-author in the second edition of the book Modelling and Simulation of Engineering Systems through Bond Graphs. He is also a consultant to various industries requiring help in modelling, simulation, design, fault detection, and automation.
