Easy to Apply Tuning Rules

Older control systems may not include tools that allow the PID tuning to be automatically established. In such cases, the following procedure outlined in Chapter 12 of Control Loop Foundation – Batch and Continuous Processes may be quickly applied to determine the tuning of a self-regulating process for PI control. In Chapter 4 of Advanced …

On-Demand Tuning

During the commissioning of feedback control based on the PID algorithm, the PID tuning parameters (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. To minimize process variations and the response time to setpoint and disturbance input changes …
