A typical production environment is inherently dynamic due to 100s or even 1,000s of interconnected and interacting loops. Assuring that all elements of a production process are “quiet” and stable both prior to and during testing is rarely feasible and it’s often impossible. While other “state-of-the-art” process modeling tools require steady-state operation before conducting process diagnostic and optimization tests, LOOP-PRO is the only software on the market that doesn’t.
LOOP-PRO is equipped with the Non-Steady State (NSS) Modeling Innovation. This feature eliminates the need for a steady-state condition prior to the start of testing. All that LOOP-PRO requires is data that shows a clear change in Controller Output. What that means is that you can bump your process and successfully improve control over your facility’s most critical PID loops under everyday conditions such as the following:
- Noisy, oscillatory and transitional processes
- Processes with a large Dead-Time
- During start-up and cut-over
- Open-Loop and Closed-Loop data
- Integrating and Non-Integrating processes
