About Topic:

PID controller is an important control loop component used in industry. Almost all process control systems make use of PID or its variants. Controlling and optimizing plants with several PIDcontrol loops are always of interest to anyone who deals with control of machine and processes. Even though the basic PID is known to almost all who makes use of it, it is felt that a quick review of PID in today’s context or from future perspective would be of interest. Further, how tuning of a PID single loop and multiple loop control systems are done is equally interesting, when we have almost all technology support in terms of communications, diagnostics and intelligence. Therefore, practically it is a control loop tuning which attracts more attention. While PID controller itself has undergone many changes since its inception, a modern PID comes with much more functionalities with built in intelligence. To other end there are fractional order controllers, and similar variants of PID controllers.

Therefore in this lecture session a fast track review of all above aspects emphasizing PID tuning and optimization is covered. Mainly the focus shall be on practical industry applications.
