Abstract : The primary purpose of the document is to study the use of simple models in the design of control strategies for complex processes. The models used were limited to first and second order models with dead time. Control algorithms were designed by various methods and applied to control of both set point changes and changes in unmeasured disturbances. Advanced control schemes were also investigated to see what advantages they produced over simple feedback schemes. While all results obtained are for a specific system, they at least provide an indication for the expected return for other similar systems. (Author)
