Hands-On Process Modeling and PI/PID Controller Tuning
Using Open-Loop and Closed-Loop Data

Robert W. Harrison, PE
ISA Life Fellow

5:00 p.m. ~ Food, Networking & Loading PC Software
6:00 p.m. ~ Presentation

Location Will Be Available Soon:

Curtis Horn 714-593-7849
Please have a Photo ID available for entrance into the plant.

In tonight's Hands-On program (bring your PC) we will do the following:
Software will be provided for each PC (loaded 5-6pm)
I will lead the following activities:
    1. We will generate the Open-Loop process model, as we did in my June Presentation, except you will do the work as I demonstrate. From this the PI/PID Controller Tuning Coefficients will be determined.
    2. We will then use the real process to generate the Closed-Loop test data. From this the PI/PID Controller Tuning Coefficients will be determined.
    3. We will now compare the real process response using both the Open-Loop and Closed-Loop Controller Tuning Coefficients under Closed-Loop control. To evaluate our controllers, we will use a built in performance monitor.
