Recovery from a Process Saturation Condition

At Emerson Exchange, 2011, I had the pleasure of working with Daniel Coyne, Manager, Automation, BP America Inc., to host a workshop on Recovery from a Process Saturation Condition.

The workshop addresses the improved recovery from a process saturation condition that is provided by the PIDPlus option of the PID function block in the DeltaV v11.3. In this workshop I discuss the improved PID response using two examples from the power house area. Dan discusses in some detail the impact of the PIDPlus option on the response improvement for compressor anti-surge control. Test results are shown for a “typical” compressor using a dynamic process and control simulation.
