Review of Deminar #8 – PID Control of Runaway Processes

To view the recording of Deminar #8, click on the above picture. If you want to just view the slides click on Deminar #8 – PID Control of Runaway Processes Self-regulating processes are the easiest to control given similar dynamics (e.g. delays, lags, and gains), nonlinearities, and upsets. In manual, the process variable will eventually …

Wireless PID Benefits Extend to Abnormal Situations, Analyzers, and Valves

The PID enhancement for wireless (PIDPlus) offers an improvement wherever there is an update time in the loop. In the broadest sense, an update time can range from seconds (e.g. wireless updates and valve or measurement sensitivity limits) to hours (e.g. failures in communication, valve, or measurement). Some of the sources of update time are: …
