Application of Kalman Filtering in DeltaV

A paper published in 1960 by Rudolf Kálmán “A New Approach to Linear Filtering and Prediction Problems” is the basis for the Kalman Filter. The Kalman filter has been successfully used in a wide variety of applications: • The guidance of commercial airplanes • Seismic data processing • Nuclear power plant instrumentation • Vehicle navigation …

Evaluating Control Performance

A plant operator is usually responsible for managing one or more process areas, with (potentially) hundreds of control loops and process measurements in each area. The operator’s job is made easier if the control loops in these process areas are in automatic mode and can compensate automatically for disturbances and maintain the operating conditions the …
