Advanced Process Control (APC) Group of Chemical Engineering Department, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, together with the Malaysia Process Control Research Community (MPC-C), will be organizing the 1st National Process Control Competition to be held in conjunction with the UTP APC –MPC-C Seminar on 12th September 2017 at UTP. 

This competition is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students, and the submission dateline is 1st August 2017. The competition is open to groups (no limit in terms of team members) and individual. Participants are required to demonstrate the performance and use of the apps to a panel of judges. The competition’s criteria:

  1. Develop a simple app for the design and tuning of PID controllers (any platform is acceptable).
  2. The apps should use a 1st order plus time delay process model (FOPTD) with time delay to time constant ratio of 0.2 up to 2.0.

Booths will be set-up during the seminar for participants to display/present their apps.
