Commissioning Control Systems – Control Response

In many processes, it is desirable to have an overdamped response. To achieve that response, the proportional gain used in the PID is typically much less than that required for an underdamped or unstable response. When selecting the PID gain, it is important to consider that the process gain may change with the operating conditions. …

Commissioning Control Systems – Installed Characteristics

From a control perspective, it is highly desirable that the process gain be constant. If the process gain is constant, then the same proportional gain may be used over the entire operating range of the control loop. However, if for example the valve characteristic has not been selected based on the process requirements, then the …
