Commissioning Control Systems – Selection of Control Structure

Most control systems allow the user to pick the components, also known as the structure of the PID algorithm, that will be used in a control application. In some cases, this is done by providing different control blocks for P, PI, or PID. However, some systems such as DeltaV provide a single PID block and …

Tuning and Loop Performance

During the commissioning of feedback control based on the PID algorithm, the tuning parameters associated with the PID (that is, the proportional, integral and derivative gain) must be set to specific values to achieve the best controller response to setpoint and disturbance input changes. The PID tuning parameters are normally specified as positive, floating-point values …

PID Feedback Control

Many processes have measured and unmeasured disturbance inputs that can significantly impact the value of the controlled and constraint outputs. Process plants are often quite complex and it is not possible for the operating staff to safely and efficiently control the process manually during normal operation. The most common means of providing automatic feedback control …
