In the process control engineering course, control methods are often introduced separately, which lacks an efficient way to deliver knowledge of control integration through case studies. In this paper, we introduce a plant-wide benchmark platform, the Tennessee Eastman (TE) process, for the teaching of process control engineering. In the control system of TE process, there are substantial control configurations with different control methods/strategies, including the classic PID control, ratio control, cascade control, override control, feedforward control, and so on. Using a uniform case study, it is easier to build a conception how different control strategies are coordinated to operate a realistic plant.
