Process Control What does this block diagram mean? PIDG(s) Controller Plant OP PV SP Error
Control Terms - Three Term Control Proportional ---- Proportional Band Integral ---- Integral Time Constant Derivative ---- Derivative Time Constant Output ( OP ) = K ( 1 + xdt + dx/dt ) ( P I D) PIDG(s) Controller Plant OP PV Error SP
Loop Response Under Damped--Overshoot gives minimum time to setpoint Critically Damped--No overshoot and stable Over Damped--No overshoot but excessive time to setpoint Under Damped Over Damped Critically Damped Setpoint Time
Loop Tuning Setpoint t osc x x t Time Rule Of Thumb: Proportional Band--P = 2* Integral Time Constant--I = 1.5* Derivative Time Constant--D = I/5
Three Term Control How can I relate this loop response to my process? Under Damped Over Damped Critically Damped Setpoint Time
Proportional Term Analogy Speed (mph) Depress gas pedal Ease off gas pedal Proportional Band 50 46 40 0 mph 40 mph46 mph Time
Integral Term Analogy Speed (mph) Slowly depress gas pedal to reach 50 mph 50 46 40 46 mph48mph50mph Time
Derivative Term Analogy Speed (mph) Proportional Band 52 50 48 50 mph 49 mph 50 mph 51 mph 50 mph Time
Process Control How many parameters are controlled in my Cast Film or Blown Film process? & How do they differ from each other in terms of speed of response?

Use Of Computer Systems What benefits can I achieve by using a computer system on my process? & How is my process control equipment connected to a computer system?
Computer Supervision - 1 A computer system provides: One window to view all line information The ability to modify line parameters Storage and download of stored recipes Live trending of data
Computer Supervision - 2 Additional computer system benefits are: Generation of batch and shift reports Statistical Process Control (SPC) trending and data Historical trend and data information Networking of data to other departments

Digital Communications My computer has RS232 and the process equipment has RS232. This is all I need, right? Wrong!
RS (EIA) 232, 422 & 485 Analogy EIA-232: 3 - wire connection ( plus enable links ): Tx, Rx, Common Point to point ( one to one ) Short distance transmission ( <50ft / 15m ) EIA-422/485: 5-wire connection (422):Tx+, Tx-, Rx+, Rx-, Common 3-wire connection (485):A (Tx+ & Rx+), B (Tx- & Rx-), Common Multi drop capability: ( 8 for EIA 422 and 32 for EIA 485 ) Long distance transmission ( 4000ft / 1230m ) EIA-232 & EIA-422/485 are analogous to using the air as the transmission medium for us to communicate. They do not tell us how we communicate.
