This text introduces the fundamental techniques for controlling dead-time processes from simple monovariable to complex multivariable cases. Dead-time-process-control problems are studied using classical proportional-integral-differential (PID) control for the simpler examples and dead-time-compensator (DTC) and model predictive control (MPC) methods for progressively more complex ones. Downloadable MATLAB ® code makes the examples and ideas more convenient and simpler.

From the reviews:
This treatment is a welcome addition to the literature, especially for those who are interested in learning the prevailing methods and practices of process control. The authors have made a commendable effort to keep the required background to a minimum. Indeed, anyone with a background in linear systems and discrete-time systems from a typical engineering curriculum should be able to follow this book.
The book contains a generous number of practical examples. For most methods discussed, Matlab codes are also given. Heuristic reasoning and simulation illustrations are often used to motivate critical ideas. Many practical issues are also discussed. These features make the book especially appealing to thos with an interst in immediate application.
The material is well organized and nicely presented. The editorial quality is high with very few mistakes for a first edition. My only complaint is the authors' tendency in a few places to use a sequence of two letters such as na, to represent a single variable, which is inconsistent with the practice in most parts of the book, where the more traditional form of one letter with subscript, such as na, is used. Overall, this book is a pleasure to read for both beginners and experts. The book is suitable as a textbook for a graduate level course or as a reference for practicing engineers. The first eight chapters can be considered as a textbook for a final year undergraduate course.
