ISA Announces Upcoming Book on Wet Process Control Systems

March 232004
Research Triangle Park, NC (23 March 2004) – ISA announces the second edition of “Basic and Advanced Regulatory Control: System Design and Application” by Harold L. Wade. This newly revised best-seller teaches the practice of process control for the wet process industries. New topics covered in the book include tuning feedback control loops, multiplicative feedforward control, and other control techniques.

Wade stresses the study of real, imperfect processes rather than system theory. He uses examples from the commercial world to give guidance on how engineers can best apply their own experience, intuition, and knowledge of the particular process.

Suitable for beginning or experienced process control engineers, “Basic and Advanced Regulatory Control” summarizes the general characteristics of processes and control loops and discusses feedback control and its nuances. The latter part of the book addresses advanced control techniques. The reader will learn the bottom-line benefits of these advanced strategies.

“Basic and Advanced Regulatory Control: System Design and Application” (ISBN 1-55617-873-5) will be available for purchase on the ISANetwork,, or by calling (919)549-8411, as of 30 April.

Review copy offered upon request.
