Open Loop Control / Direct Acting
Mathematical Calculation Input Control Variable Setpoint Output Device 0-100% Input: Outside Air Temperature Setpoint: 50’F Output: Chiller on/off (0-100%) Action: Direct (input output )

Open Loop Control / Reverse Acting
Mathematical Calculation Input Control Variable Setpoint Output Device 0-100% Input: Outside Air Temperature Setpoint: 60’F Output: Boiler on/off (0-100%) Action: Reverse (input output )

Closed Loop Control Reverse Acting
Mathematical Calculation Input Control Variable Output Device 0-100% Setpoint Input: Room Temperature Setpoint: 70’F Output: Radiator Valve (0-100%)

PID Control by Mathematical calculation
Proportional Output varies in PROPORTION to input error Integral Output varies over TIME based on input error Derivative Output varies based RATE of CHANGE of input error P control P + I control P + I + D control (not used in our industry!)

PID closed loop control – driving at speed

Definition: (SETPOINT)
The desired value of the input variable T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 Input Value Setpoint Time

Definition: OFFSET (error)
The DIFFERENCE between the input variable and the desired setpoint. T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 Input Value Setpoint Time Offset

Definition: Throttling Range (Proportional Band)
Amount of Change in INPUT that equals a 0-100% change in OUTPUT 100% Controller Output 50% 0% 70° 65° 75° Setpoint T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 Throttling Range (Proportional Band) (10’F)

Proportional Control (with Offset Error)

Proportional + Integral Control (eliminates offset)

PID Setpoint RESET Requires RESET sensor (typically outside air)

PID Setpoint Recovery Ramp

PID options (not available on ALL PID loops)
Output Start Value (%) Provides starting value for initial control Output Start Ramp (seconds) limits action during initial startup to prevent overshoot Output Dead Band (%) Output Adjust Delay & Threshold Prevents repeated minor adjustment to output Prevents needless wear & tear on mechanical devices

Definition: Hunting (over-reacting)
100% Controller Output 50% 0% 70° Setpoint T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 69° 71° Proportional Band Throttling Range (2’F) Time

Tuning Hints: PI control for closed-loop applications only. The narrower (smaller) the throttling range, the more precise the control operation. The wider (larger) the throttling range, the more stable the control action. Generally the throttling range required for PI control is greater than what is used for proportional control only. The integral time value is set in seconds. A slow process such as space temperature control requires a long integral time (600 seconds or more), while a fast process such as static pressure control requires a short integral time. An integral time of 0 eliminates the integral function for the control loop.

Typical Values From Engineering Manual
Default Space Temperature Control (CV AHU controller)

Throttling Range = ½ Input Sensor Range
Field Tuning Integral Time to Zero Throttling Range = ½ Input Sensor Range Adjust Throttling Range to point where about first begins to hunt. Increase Throttling Range 1.5 X Add Integral Time based on system response time (typically 60 – 2500 seconds) Check for Stable Operation

PID POP Quiz Define open loop Define closed loop A cooling loop is (direct/reverse) acting An AHU static pressure control loop is (direct/reverse) acting Define P, I, D Define throttling range Define integral time When do you use Differential control? What adjustment(s) reduce ‘hunting’?
