I followed your steps for an integrating process and used the equations provided and WOW!

The best PID tuners in the business are those who try out their newly calculated tuning parameters on a ‘fit for purpose’ simulation before investing in both the effort and downtime required to implement them on their physical process. The technique I’m talking about is a technique that I’ve assembled from lots of different sources over my 12 years as a control engineer working with some of the best Control Engineers in the world. In fact I’ll even point you to their location.

I liked how it was written and I felt it like the author was talking to me.

The PID tuning blueprint

In Googling PID information, his text was referenced by a number of unrelated sites. Please choose whether or tunkng you want other users to be able to see on your profile that this library is a favorite of yours. Even though I am a motion control guy I know how control works in general and can do process control too.

This sophisticated spreadsheet actually simulates your process and controller right inside the familiar environment of MS Excel. That should give you plenty of time to know one way or the other that the Blueprint is the critical tool that boosts your process control success.

In other words, I am now at ttuning with my process, whereas before I was increasingly frustrated by its behaviour. Find More Posts by Elcan. Don’t waste your precious time trying to piece together the whole picture about PID Tuning when I can give you all the information you need right now.


That was an interesting problem. I purchased your guide because I have been tasked with training a couple of instrument technicians on the art of vessel jacket tuning with an added complication that my students are French!!!

What else does 97 bucks buy you in industrial automation in ? Similar Items Related Subjects: You know the one – It forces you to send your system unstable before suggesting tuning constants that leave your loop always teetering on instability.

The truth pic you don’t need to understand control theory or equations like that evil looking one above to successfully tune most PID loops. I really had to think many times before I finally bought the blueprint.

The simulator really helps me predict changes in the process response with changing characteristics. Yes and in a fun way Will this method be of any use to you? PID was not necessary after it was so well tuned. Even the practicing engineers got much of that problem wrong.

Please verify that you are not a robot.

Find Blyeprint Posts by Peter Nachtwey. I’ve been trying to tune a process with a long lag and its taken buleprint long long time. From time to time I find worthy students that I help. Would you also like to submit a review for this item? The E-mail Address es you entered is are not in a valid format. If you look I wrote one of the articles or lessons there. Reading made me went to rush my tnuing to the new project I’m on.

November 8th, January 6th, Would you like a detailed step-by-step guide that shows you how to evaluate, design, tune and operate a Cascade Control System? This practical explanation helped me understand PID control better in two hours than I had learned in three-month theoretical courses that I had taken in the past.

We’re still having a few problems with our process but these are due to other pieces bluepribt equipment being controlled manually. The spreadsheet also automates the process of converting the raw tuning constants to values that your specific controller type can use.

Example given, I just want to emphasise that when a control loop is giving problems, don’t always blame the tried and tested PLC instructions The E-mail message field is required. By using this product, you agree that your recourse for any and all claims related to your use of this product is a refund within the terms of our guarantee. This crash course uses the analogy of a car on a freeway changing lanes to represent the process under control and walks you through easy to visualize “thought experiments” to cement the concepts in your mind.

Because if there is no science or methodology behind your tuning then the chance of you stumbling across the exact combination of P, I and Tuninh gains that will deliver the fastest, most stable response is approximately zero.

That stands for W ild A ssed G uess. Please enter your name. After a little trip on Internet I finally decided to buy Finn’s method: This is probably is the best down-to-earth material for tuning PIDs that I have ever seen.

You don’t need to plough through pages of dry text books trying to separate the academic theory from the practical techniques that you can actually use in the real world.
