Turning of Industrial Control Systems – Armando B. Corripio – 2nd Edition


Suitable for beginners, this book takes a practical, but systematic approach to tuning. The aim is to provide insight into tuning procedures rather than a series of formulas to be memorized. The author gives helpful rules of thumb to speed the learning process during field training. The text begins with a discussion of common techniques for measuring the dynamic response of a process and choosing appropriate performance criteria.

Later chapters cover selection and tuning of feedback control modes, including computer- and microprocessor-based controllers, and advanced modes.

This Second Edition includes numerous examples of tuning, including the effect of hysteresis in flow control loops, averaging and tight level control, cascade control of a jacketed chemical reactor, feedforward control of a heater, and loop interaction and ratio control in a blender. Also included, is an introduction to a model reference control and a chemical reactor control example to illustrate it.
