The Pros and Cons of Cascade Control

As shared previously Cascade Control is an advanced application of Single Loop Control.  Through the use of a secondary and faster PID control loop, practitioners can improve a given process’ ability to correct for known disturbances.  Although it is [...]

Overview of Cascade Control

While Cascade Control is generally considered an advanced control strategy, it is only marginally more complex to implement than Single Loop Control.  More often than not it is applied to improve the performance of a slow process such as [...]

What is Industry 4.0?

Those in the manufacturing industry have seen a rash of new terminology introduced over the last several years. Among those terms: The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0. While these terms may stimulate thoughts of progress and innovation, [...]

How to Model a PID Loops

As stated in a previous post, tuning PID controllers is a multi-step process. After you gather your data from your step test, the next step in the process is fitting a model to your Process Data. Fitting a model involves [...]
