    The goalThe main goal is to enhance the students’ knowledge in the area of process dynamics, including nonlinear processes. Other goals are that the students recognize the significance of the knowledge of process dynamics, not only for control purposes, but also in order to develop non-stationary processes and dynamic research techniques in chemical engineering systems.
    The outcomeThe expected outcomes are that after taking this course the students will: (i) be qualified for ; analysis of complex dynamic systems; (ii) be qualified for using the necessary mathematical, numerical and software tools for analysis of complex non-stationary processes; (iii) learn about processes that are operated in non-stationary (periodic) regime; (iv) be able to implement their knowledge in development of new non-stationary processes and techniques, in their research work. ;
    Contents of lectures1.Dynamics of complex chemical-engineering processes: multi-variable, lumped and distributed parameter systems and non-linear systems ; 2. Mathematical tools needed for analysis of non-linear dynamic systems: perturbation technique, generalized frequency transfer function, phase plane technique ; 3. Non-linear and linearized models – comparison ; 4. Periodic operations – inherent non-stationary processes (adsorption czcles: PSA, TSA, SMB, etc) ; 5. Periodic operations – deliberate non-stationary processes – periodic operations for improvement of process performances ; 6. Research techniques in chemical engineering based on nonlinear dynamics ;
