Process Control Group of Sigurd Skogestad

Department of Chemical Engineering,

Norwegian University of Science and Technology

N-7491 Trondheim, Norway

Part of Process Systems Engineering Group and PROST

Head: Sigurd Skogestad

The group is part of the Process Systems Engineering Group at the Department of Chemical Engineering, NTNU, Trondheim. In addition, we are part of the 40-member Strong Point Center in Process Systems Engineering in Trondheim PROST. PROST consists of people from Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering (both at NTNU and SINTEF) and is the second largest process systems engineering center in Europe (after Imperial College).

The activity of the process control group focuses on developing tools which are rigorous, yet useful in practice. The aim is to provide the engineer with tools to assist in problem solving. Main research areas:
