Chapter 20. Tools for Evaluating Process Performance

What You Will Learn

• There are important relationships, probably taught in earlier classes, that are used to evaluate process performance.

Several important computational and graphical tools used to analyze plant operations and changes in process design are developed and demonstrated in this chapter. Many of these tools are keyed to actual system performance. Tools presented are used extensively in future chapters.

Intuitive understanding is emphasized over computational complexity. All problems can be solved using a calculator without special functions. Graphical representations are also emphasized. They illustrate the characteristic behavior of a unit or process over a wide range of operations. ...
