PID Tuning Example: How to do PID tuning for interacting loops?

Posted by Didac Recio on May 25, 2020 4:40:08 PM

Tuning of PID controllers has shown to improve plant performance and increase stability and safety. Very often, single control loops are tuned with the focus only on that specific loop, without regard for process interaction with other control loops. Depending on the nature of the process, this interaction can lead to a destabilizing effect where the control loops fight each other instead of working together in harmony. Discover in this PID tuning example how to analyze and tune interacting loops in this blog.
