PID control is widely used to control stable processes, however, its application to integrating processes is less common. In this paper, we proposed a new PID controller tuning method for integrating processes with time delay to meet a new robust specification. With the proposed PID tuning method, we can obtain a loop transfer function with the real part close to -0.5. This guarantees both robustness and performance. Simulation examples are given to show the performance of the method.

    • "For the PD inner loop, the following are used[14]19)In (18) and (19), θ 1 and τ are the delay and time-constant respectively from an approximate FOPTD plant model. The modifications carried out on these P and PD tuning algorithms simply concern the use of larger values of k n for the stable processes being addressed here. "

    ABSTRACT: Integrating process with dead-time is commonly encountered in process industry. Integrating process can usually be approximated by a low-order plus time-delay model. In this paper, a simple fuzzy proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller tuning method is proposed for a generalized second-order integrating process with dead-time, which is based on matching the coefficients of corresponding powers of s in the numerator and that in the denominator of a closed-loop system. A simple tuning parameter for PID controller is obtained. A new exponential term approximation is introduced which can reduce the model error. The proof shows that the system performance can be guaranteed. The fuzzy rule base is built and fuzzy tuning of the obtained tuning parameter is applied. The result of the fuzzy tuning method is compared with that proposed in literature under both time varying and non-varying condition. The proposed simple fuzzy tuning method shows a better time domain performance and good robustness under time varying condition.

    ABSTRACT: An effective and simple way of designing a two-degree-of-freedom control scheme for an integral process is to employ an inner feedback loop in order mainly to stabilise the system and then an outer feedback loop in order to provide the required performance. Different methods have been proposed in the literature for the design and tuning of this control scheme, where the controllers are of P(D) type for the internal loop and of PI(D) type for the external loop. These methods will be presented and compared in this chapter.
