Optimisation of Interacting PID loops

Date From: 20 June 2017
Location: Webinar
Description: PID loops are a fundamental automation layer of almost all types of industrial production facilities. These PID loops need to be well-tuned so that they can operate optimally, especially in scenarios where several of these PID loops interact with each other.
Event Type: Webinar
Venue: Online

Time: 09:00-10:00 BST
Organiser: Process Management & Control Special Interest Group

Book Event

PID loops are a fundamental automation layer of almost all types of industrial production facilities. These PID loops need to be well-tuned so that they can operate optimally, especially in scenarios where several of these PID loops interact with each other. Optimising the tuning of Multiple, interacting, PID loops will be discussed in this webinar. Case studies and examples will be presented to demonstrate the benefits of a systematic approach to tuning such interacting PID loops.

This webinar will be of interest to Process and Control engineers as well as people responsible for the tuning of PID loops will benefit from this session. You will learn how to tune difficult PID loops, some tips and tricks as well as examples of different tuning cases that you would find on most production facilities.
