Chemical process industry is evolving day by day. One of the key aspects of processes is optimization and process control. Various control objectives such as optimizing temperature, pressure, conversion, flow, level are met by using different types of control systems. Feedback, feed forward and combination act as a control strategy. Various control systems such as proportional (P), proportional integral (PI), and proportional integral derivative control systems can be used according to requirements. Nowadays Fuzzy logic control system is considered promising in many applications because of its advantages. The current review summarizes research and studies on control systems in chemical industries.
Key words: Control objectives, response, algorithm, strategy, variables.
