AUGUST 2016 – OVERCOMING LOOP TUNING CHALLENGES
For years, it was nessesary to steady a process before tuning software could be applied successfully. Because most industrial processes exhibit some degree of ocvillatory behavior, the steady-state tuning requirement…Read More
Where Can I Get Control Station 3.7? What Happened to Control Station v3.7?
While not all things get better with time some things do actually improve as they age. Anyone over 40 might argue with that statement, and they might have every reason to do so from a personal and physical standpoint. Even so, just a casual glance around – whether in an academic or an industrial setting – offers signs of progress nearly everywhere. To be sure there’s been plenty of progress here at Control Station.Read More

What is the Process Time Constant? How Do I Calculate the Time Constant of A Process?
Party hosts often cringe when guests arrive early or late. Seemingly subtle shifts in timing can throw off planned details that are of importance to the host and utterly lost on guests. So too the timing of a PID control loop’s response is important. Premature or delayed responses negatively impact the controller’s performance. Previously the calculation of Process Gain – the “how far” variable – was covered. The Process Time Constant is equally important to process modeling and PID controller tuning. As with most things, timing is everything.Read More
