Turning of Industrial Control Systems – Armando B. Corripio, Michael Newell – 3rd Edition


A PRACTICAL AND SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO TUNING In this third edition, the authors’ aim has been to simplify and demystify the procedure of tuning systems based on their successful tuning work in oil refineries. A new chapter has been added on the use of auto-tuning currently available in most current control systems. The authors have used this whenever possible to carry out the dynamic testing of the process as it is less disruptive of operations than doing the tests manually.

They have also used the tuning results to guide them but always using the principles presented in the to evaluate them. All of the example responses have been generated using to illustrate the tuning and show the differences between -tuning controllable versus dead-time dominated loops averaging versus tight level control -cascade versus simple of a jacketed chemical reactor -feedforward versus simple feedback control -decoupler control versus simple feedback control of a blender.
