Tuning PI controllers for integrator/dead time processes
Chien and Fruehauf proposed an internal model control (IMC) approach to selecting the tuning constants for a PI controller in a process consisting of a pure integrator and a dead time. The onlyExpand

Use of Hammerstein Models in Identification of Nonlinear Systems
The utility of the Hammerstein model, which is composed of a static nonlinear element in series with a linear dynamic part, was investigated to represent the dynamics of nonlinear chemical processes.Expand

Comparison of Alternative Control Structures for an Ideal Two-Product Reactive Distillation Column
Although steady-state design and open-loop dynamics of reactive distillation columns have been explored in many papers, very few papers have dealt with closed-loop control. Most of these controlExpand

Identification and Tuning of Integrating Processes with Deadtime and Inverse Response
The classical example of an integrating process with inverse response is level control of a boiler steam drum. The “boiler swell” problem can lead to a transfer function between the drum level andExpand
