How Do I Calculate Gain? What Is the Difference Between Process Gain and Controller Gain?
Among practitioners who tune PID control loops manually most note their focus on calculating the Gain. Process Gain is a model parameter whereas Controller Gain is a tuning parameter. The former describes important aspects of a given process’ dynamic behavior. The later contributes to the PID controller’s responsiveness to disturbances.Read More
What is Lambda Tuning?
Tuning a PID controller should always start with a clear understanding of both the control objective and the Design Level of Operation (DLO). Unfortunately a subsequent step (the calculation of tuning parameters) can often put practitioners in a bind relative to achieving the designated objective.Read More
How Do I Perform an Effective Bump Test?
Bumping a process is a standard requirement when tuning a PID controller – whether you tune manually or with the help of software. And, either way, applying industry best-practices will save you significant time and money.Read More
How Do I Tune a PID Controller?
Techniques for modelling a process’ dynamics and calculating tuning parameters are widely available. These approaches enable practitioners to tune controllers consistently and with reasonable results. At Control Station we know a little about this topic as we’ve been sharing these techniques for decades and innovating software-based solutions that deliver even better results.Read More
