"Gave me better insight to what all is involved in tuning."
- Dustin LeBlanc
Improved control provides better productivity and efficiencies. This seminar presents, step-by-step, practical, successful tuning methods that utilize closed loop relationships and reaction curve analysis to tune feedback controllers in process industries. These methods can be applied immediately to provide improved control of your processes.
You will be able to:
Explain the fundamentals of controller gain or proportional band, integral and derivative actions, and the application of each
Test and tune a controller by trial and error
Experiment with the trial and error method by using analytical techniques
Apply the ultimate sensitivity tuning method to properly tune feedback controllers
Identify tuning constants by using procedures to improve "as found" settings
Record response curves on a process
Measure gain, dead time, and process lag of a process
Identify what controller gain or proportional band, integral, and derivative actions are best to control this process
Describe the difference between set point change and load change
Identify when tuning changes may be needed for improved control and state reasons for this
You will cover:
Relationship of Controller and Process: Four Components in a Closed Loop System | Interaction of Changes of each Component | Benefits of Good Control
Definitions of the Controller Modes: Gain | Integral and Derivative
Rules for Improved Trial and Error Tuning
Analysis of Closed Loop System: Tuning Using Oscillation Techniques
Analysis of Open Loop System: Tuning Using a Response Curve Generated by a Step Change | Tuning Using a Response Curve Produced by a Load Change | Working with Unusual Response Curves
Process Characteristics and Related Tuning Requirements
Understanding Changes that may be Required in the Process and Suggest Alternative Methods
