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 …

Effect of Mechanical Design – Pumps and Piping

The increasing emphasis on saving energy and capital costs can lead to pump and piping designs that inadvertently cause a severe loss of turndown in flow loops and a significant increase in noise , delay, and lag in temperature and pH loops. The deterioration in loop performance can create an insidious reduction in process efficiency …
