Control Systems Part 1: Introduction to Control Systems & Controllers

Effectively tuned control loops provide for more efficient and safer operation. After process startup, there are various techniques available for tuning controllers ranging from trial and error methods to mathematically sophisticated programs. Few options are available for tuning loops prior to startup. Many control systems are started with the manufacturer’s default tuning parameters. This series of GATEKEEPERS will provide methods for using readily available process design data for determining effective tuning parameters before startup.
