Analytical Aspects of Chemical Process Control Part 1. Fundamentals
Abstract: The aim of this document is to present recommendations for reporting results concerning chemical process control and deals with terms most relevant to both analytical chemist's and process engineer's viewpoints. This part gives a brief description of the fundamentals involved in the basic analytical system. After formulating and explaining the operating system, approaches to process control are classified, followed by the planning, design and sample manipulation of dynamic systems as well as measurement and detection modules. The position of different components in the analytical system and the relation to the operating system should be clearly indicated when presenting results concerning process analytical chemistry.
