Selecting Control Response

After the process characteristics are identified, the information is then used to calculate the recommended loop tuning. The tuning rules used to derive controller parameters from process characteristics can be chosen as appropriate for the specific process and the desired speed of response. As addressed in Chapter 4 of Advanced Control Foundtion – Tools, Techniques, …

Permitted and Actual Mode

The input parameters of are function block are used by the algorithm in conjunction with the state of the function block application to determine if the algorithm can achieve the target mode of operation established for it. The target mode attribute as origianlly defined by ISA50 is the part of the mode parameter that indicates …
