Killexams : Author Q&A: Control Systems Engineering exam Reference Manual: A Practical Study Guide
ISA published the fourth edition of the Control Systems Engineering exam Reference Manual: A Practical Study Guide by Bryon Lewis, PE, CMfgE, CCNA. In this Q&A feature, Lewis explains why he was compelled to write an updated edition and draws attention to areas of new and enhanced content.

Note: A brief author biography is included at the bottom of this page.

Q. Why did you feel it was important to write a new edition? What added value does it provide?

A. I have taken a plant-wide design approach in this new release to help the PE/CSE candidate better understand the design task given and successfully complete the task on the NCEES exam. The updated release also is designed to help prepare the controls engineer for the many large projects that will be emerging in the decade ahead. Manufacturing and chemical plants are about to meet what is called Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution. Almost all plants will be network controlled and connected to the Internet, so focus should be placed on understanding industrial networking, switching and routing applications for industrial protocols.”
 

Q. What areas of new content do you view as particularly important in helping candidates prepare for the NCEES exam?

A. Several new chapters have been added to prepare the PE/CSE candidate for the possible subject matter that may be presented on the professional engineer’s examination. New content matter of particular importance relates to:

  • Valve sizing concerns of differential pressure limitations and cavitation when installed in in real plant piping systems.
  • Head type instrumentation for level and flow measurement and their calculations.
  • Motor control applications.
  • PLC and DCS programming and their implementation.
  • Typical processes found in production plants and how to control these processes.
  • The economic benefits of selecting a proper control scheme.

I’ve also introduced new calculations, sample problems and appendix tables that are intended to cover nearly all the data the PE/CSE candidate will need to answer questions on the examination.
 

Q. What about areas of the book that you have enhanced or added to? Can you point out material that has been expanded on?

A. I’ve updated and expanded material on all important course areas, including:

  • Examination content as per the NCEES 2011 examination specifications
  • Fluid mechanics for level and flow measurements
  • Calculation of irregular tank volumes for a given level measurement
  • Mass flow and two-phase flow
  • Valve actuators and positioners
  • Valve sizing and their installed characteristics applied to plant piping systems
  • ASME, NFPA and EPA code requirements for pressure relief and release
  • Control theory calculations, controller tuning and block algebra
  • NFPA, IEC codes and the applications to hazardous classified locations
  • Proper power, signal and communication cable usage, routing and sizing
  • Understanding SIS (Safety Instrumented Systems) and their calculations
  • Calculations for pumping and piping systems
  • Networks for industrial and corporate interfacing of control systems
  • Electrical power quality, harmonic generation and filtering
  • Motion control systems
  • Pneumatic and hydraulic systems
  • Sizing emergency standby systems

Killexams : Professional Engineering Exam

As a licensed Professional Engineer, or PE, you can expect many more benefits when compared to other engineers; most employers offer higher salaries and greater opportunities for advancement to PE's. Only PE's can consult in private practice, and seal company documents to be sent to the government. PEs also have more credibility as expert witnesses in court than most engineers.

Steps in obtaining a PE license:

  • Pass the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam.
  • Graduate with a bachelor's degree from an ABET accredited engineering curriculum (all Engineering curricula at Michigan Tech except Robotics Engineering).
  • Gain four years of engineering experience under the supervision of a registered professional engineer.
  • Pass the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) Exam.

During your senior year you should take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, which is required prior to sitting for the Professional Engineers (PE) Exam. Some requirements vary by state.

  • Flow velocity is proportional to the hydraulic gradient

Equations

  • head
  • hydraulic gradient
  • groundwater flow

  • dynamic viscosity of the fluid
  • length
  • time
  • mass

Notes

  • Limitation: applies for laminar flow
  • The negative sign is because flow is in the direction of decreasing head (ie, a negative hydraulic gradient)

Intrinsic Permeability

Most important properties affecting the magnitude of intrinsic permeability include:

  1. Sizes and numbers of pores
  2. Pore shape and “connectedness” (packing)
  3. Surface texture

Intrinsic permeability is proportional to the square of the grain diameter. A table is given for the median size of fine, medium, and course sand to show the difference by orders of magnitude in the intrinsic permeability.

Seepage Velocity

Darcy velocity or specific discharge (ie, flow rate per total area) is used for water supply (volume).

Average pore or seepage velocity, which reflects the average velocity of groundwater in pore spaces, is of interest for contaminant transport and geotechnical problems.

Aquifers

Aquifers are geological formations that are saturated with water.

Equations

  • degree of saturation
  • porosity

Variables

  • degree of saturation
  • volume of water
  • volume of voids
  • porosity
  • total (bulk) volume

Notes

  • Volumetric water content will equal porosity when the degree of saturation is 100% (saturated).
  • Groundwater flow occurs in pores and fractures
    • Unconsolidated systems are composed of broken rock pieces, and pores are the spaces between the grains/pieces.
    • Consolidated systems are whole rock formations, and pores can exist among the cemented grains that form rocks or as fractures/cracks that subsequently occur as a result of tectonics and/or weathering.
    • Unconsolidated formates are usually more porous and more permeable. Darcy’s Law often applies.
    • Flows in many consolidated formations occur primarily in fractures/conduits. Darcy’s Law often does NOT apply.

Well Hydraulics (Ideal)

Equations

  • governing equation for groundwater flow for a confined aquifer
  • groundwater flow under steady state conditions

Variables

  • governing equation for groundwater flow for a confined aquifer
  • distance from the center of the pumping well
  • aquifer thickness
  • aquifer compressibility
  • fluid (water) compressibility

Aquifer Behavior

Unconfined aquifers have a “free” water surface or groundwater table, which is at atmospheric pressure and below which the pressures are normally hydrostatic.

Confined aquifers are overpressured, and the potentiometric surface is above the top of the aquifer. The top of the aquifer is a confining unit (aquitard or aquiclude).

Illustrations

  • Unconfined (phreatic)
  • Confined (artesian)
  • Special case: flowing well

Confined

Solutions to the groundwater flow equation for a single pumping well in a fully confined aquifer:

Equations

drawdown, a potentiometric surface from static (unpumped, initial) level

Assumptions

  • homogeneous, isotropic properties
  • no boundaries
  • uniform thickness
  • constant pumping rate
  • fully confined
  • fully penetrating
  • flat SWL
  • Solutions for Theis and Cooper-Jacob approximations

Solutions

  • Theis solution is valid for all t
  • Cooper-Jacob solution error diminishes as t goes up

Example

  • Fully confined aquifer pumped @ 1 cubic meter per minute
  • Given:
    • porosity
    • aquifer thickness
    • aquifer compressibility
    • water compressibility
    • intrinsic permeability
    • water density
    • water viscosity
    • flow rate
  • Calculate T, S, s(r,t) @ r = 100 m, t = 1000 min
  • Use the Theis approach and then the Cooper-Jacob approximation

Special Condition: Steady State (Equilibrium)

In addition to the assumptions for the Theis solution (ie, ideal aquifer and pumping conditions), assume that the potentiometric surface has stabilized. In this case, the Theim solution applies, which comes from integrating Darcy’s Law for axisymmetric flow to the pumping well.

Unconfined

Application of the Thiem solution to an unconfined aquifer:

Equations

  • Darcy’s Law
  • Dupuit’s Formula

Special case for a pumping well.

Example of Steady State Well Hydraulics

Calculate the specific capacity for confined and unconfined.

Soil and Groundwater Remediation

Contaminant Phases

  1. Pure or “neat” or “free” or “nonaqueous” (eg, gasoline or fuel oil)
  2. Dissolved or aqueous
  3. Vapor or gaseous (for volatile contaminants)
  4. Sorbed

Sites that pose a threat to people, either because concentrations exceed drinking water standards (MCLs or max contaminant levels) or other exposures (eg, contact, inhalation, etc.), or to the environment, such as discharge to surface water, must undergo corrective action (remediation or “plume control”).

Killexams : Fundamentals of Engineering exam

When can I take the FE exam?

To be eligible to take the NCEES Fundamentals of Engineering exam, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. Completed 90 credits
  2. Achieved senior status
  3. Be enrolled in mostly 400-level courses toward your engineering degree
  4. Be enrolled in the ENGR 490 section assigned to your major department
    • Section 1002-Chemical & Materials Science Engr
    • Section 1003-Civil & Environmental Engr
    • Section 1004-Electrical & Biomedical Engr
    • Section 1005-Mechanical Engr
    • Section 1006-Geological Engr
    • Section 1007-Metallurgical & Mining Engr

For seniors ready to take the FE exam, you will still need to register for ENGR 490 the semester you plan on taking the exam. Please be mindful that if you plan on graduating in the semester you take the exam, you will need to take the exam no later than prep day to allow for adequate processing time (uploading your exam proof). Otherwise, this may delay your diploma.

CSE students are not required to take the FE exam. 

The exam will be held at any NCEES-approved testing facility year round at a testing day and time that you choose. Do not wait to sign up for an exam date! If you choose to wait to sign up for the test in the middle of or later in the semester, the testing center dates will most likely be FULL! This may cause a delay, or even denial, in receiving your diploma if you are taking the exam in your last semester. Yes, it is an expensive test, but isn't it more expensive to have wait an extra semester for your diploma?

How do I sign up for the FE exam?

Register for the exam on the NCEES website.

How do I prepare for the FE exam?

You may access and review the current FE Supplied Reference Manual, the same type you'll be using during the examination, on the NCEES website.

Study sessions are often organized by the student chapters of ASCE and ASME once a semester. Emails will be sent to students enrolled in ENGR 490, and flyers will be posted on the College's Facebook page. There is often a small cost in order to attend each session.

Please contact Sam DiMuzio (sadimuzio@unr.edu) with any questions about review sessions.

Once you've passed the FE exam

Go to the Nevada State Board of Engineering website and apply for Engineer Intern certification. Instructions on how to apply can be found on their website.
