The objective of this module is to illustrate a practical problem where the IMC-based PID procedure can be used. The sections of the module are as follows:
M7.2 Steady-State and Dynamic Behavior
M7.3 Stable Steady-State Operating Point
M7.4 Unstable Steady-State Operating Point
M7.5 SIMULINK Model File
The procedure for a stable process will be used in Section M7.3, while the procedure for an unstable process will be used in Section M7.4. In both cases, use the SIMULINK model file presented in Section M7.5.
Although you will be using a linear controller, you will be implementing this controller on a nonlinear process. The inputs and outputs to/from this process are in physical variables, while the controller ...
