A Case Study in Modeling and Process Control: the Control of a Pilot Scale Heating and Ventilation System
(2006)
Mooney, Robin; O'Dwyer, Aidan
Abstract:
This paper details the control of a pilot scale laboratory heating and ventilation system. The system is represented in 2x2 multiinput, multioutput (MIMO) form. A process reaction curve identification technique was used to model (in first order lag plus delay  FOLPD  form) the flow process and temperature process portions of the system, over a range of operating conditions. Tests revealed that both processes were continuously nonlinear. A gain scheduler with static decoupling was designed, using lookup tables, to continuously interpolate for the most suitable proportionalintegral (PI) or proportionalintegralderivative (PID) controller settings and decoupler gains. The contribution of this paper is the careful application, using wellknown techniques, of a complete controller design cycle for a laboratory scale system.

A classification of techniques for the compensation of time delayed processes. Part 1: Parameter optimised controllers
(1999)
O'Dwyer, Aidan; Ringwood, John
Abstract:
An extensive literature exists on the compensation of time delayed processes. It is possible to identify themes that are common to many of the available techniques. The intention of the two parts of this paper is to provide a framework against which the literature may be viewed; Part 1 of the paper considers the use of parameter optimised controllers for the compensation problem, with Part 2 of the paper considering the use of structurally optimised compensators. Conclusions are drawn at the end of Part 2.

A frequency domain based selftuning PID controller

A frequency domain based selftuning PID controller
(1994)
Ringwood, John; O'Dwyer, Aidan
Abstract:
Traditionally, both explicit and implicit selftuning controllers have employed time domain techniques for the identification and tracking of plant and controller parameters. The use of the frequency domain provides concise information on the dynamics of the process which has led to its wide acceptance as a domain for controller design. This paper demonstrates a method employing recursive, online measurement of the process frequency response, with a straightforward calculation of PID controller parameters. The computational effort involved is comparable with that of a time domain technique.

A nonlinear PID controller for CSTR using local model networks
(2002)
Gao, Ruiyao; O'Dwyer, Aidan; Coyle, Eugene
Abstract:
The basic PID controllers have difficulty in dealing with problems that appear in complex nonlinear processes. This paper presents a practical nonlinear PID controller that deals with these nonlinear difficulties. It utilises a local model (LM) network, which combines a set of local models within an artificial neural network structure, to adaptively characterise the process nonlinearity. Then a local controller network is formulated through a gating system deduced from the LMN to handle the nonlinearity. A continuous stirred tank reaction (CSTR) case study illustrates the practicality of this method in the modelling and control of nonlinear processes. PID controllers are still alive and appropriate for the control of nonlinear processes.

A reference guide to Smith predictor based methods for the compensation of deadtime processes
(2005)
O'Dwyer, Aidan
Abstract:
An extensive literature exists on the compensation of time delayed processes. These compensation methods may be broadly divided into parameter optimised controllers, in which the controller parameters are adapted to the controller structure (the most common such controller is the proportional integral derivative, or PID, controller), and structurally optimised controllers, in which the controller structure and parameters are adapted optimally to the structure and parameters of the process model. Important structurally optimised compensator strategies are the Smith predictor and its variations. The purpose of this paper is to extract the essence of the developments in design, tuning and implementation of these controllers. In addition, an original variation on the Smith predictor structure is detailed.

A summary of PI and PID controller tuning rules for processes with time delay. Part 1: PI controller tuning rules
(2000)
O'Dwyer, Aidan
Abstract:
The ability of proportional integral (PI) and proportional integral derivative (PID) controllers to compensate many practical industrial processes has led to their wide acceptance in industrial applications. The requirement to choose either two or three controller parameters is perhaps most easily done using tuning rules. A summary of tuning rules for the PI control of single input, single output (SISO) processes with time delay is provided in this paper.

A Teaching Practice Review of the Use of MultipleChoice Questions for Formative and Summative Assessment of Student Work on Advanced Undergraduate and Postgraduate Modules in Engineering
(2012)
O'Dwyer, Aidan
Abstract:
This paper reflects on, reports on and evaluates the use of multiplechoice questions, in both formative and summative assessment modes, on control engineering modules taken by advanced undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students, over four academic years. The material covered by the modules is analytical in nature. The rationale for examining the assessment strategy was the poor performance by students in a closed book traditional terminal examination on one of the advanced undergraduate modules over some years. The change in assessment strategy has improved student learning, as measured by assessment data; student feedback on the assessment methods is broadly positive. The assessment approach has been extended with success to some postgraduate modules. Overall, an evidence based approach is taken in the reporting and analysis.

An approach to teaching PID controller tuning
(2006)
O'Dwyer, Aidan
Abstract:
This paper discusses an approach to the teaching of PID controller tuning methods to students in control engineering at Dublin Institute of Technology. The method involves analytically calculating the gain margin, phase margin and maximum sensitivity for PI and PID controlled systems whose process is modelled in first order lag plus time delay (FOLPD) form. Students can examine the performance of many tuning rules from graphical results, allowing insight to be developed as to the most rational choice of the tuning rule for the application. Some preliminary work done to develop an expert system to allow a greater automation of the procedure for recommending a tuning rule, for user defined requirements, is also described.

Analytical ISE calculation and optimum control system design

Abstract:
In control system theory, a performance index is a quantitative measure of the performance of a system and is chosen so that emphasis is given to the important system parameters. In this paper, the authors demonstrate two methods to determine analytically the ISE performance index value for a FOPDT process model under PI control. The ability of proportional/integral (PI) and proportional/integral/derivative (PID) controllers to compensate most practical industrial processes has led to their wide acceptance in industrial applications. The most direct way to set up PI/PID controller parameters is the use of tuning rules. The second part of this paper examines the performance of ten tuning rules used to compensate six representative processes.

Closed Loop Identification Of A First Order Plus Dead Time Process Model Under PI Control
(2002)
Kealy, Tony; O'Dwyer, Aidan
Abstract:
Abstract  This paper discusses the estimation of the parameters of a first order plus deadtime process model using the closedloop step response data of the process under proportional plus integral (PI) control. The proportional gain and the integral time, in the PI controller, are chosen such that the closedloop step response exhibits an underdamped response. From this response data, five characteristic points are used to determine a second order plus deadtime model and subsequently, the frequency response of the closedloop system. Knowing the dynamics of the closedloop system and the dynamics of the controller, the openloop dynamics of the process can be determined by separating the dynamics of the controller from the closedloop dynamics.
