Internal model-based control (IMC) has been shown to possess many advantages over PID control, particularly in the presence of significant process deadtime. Implementation of IMC is simplified in a large class of industrial applications where the process dynamics can be adequately characterized by a simple first-order model requiring only estimates of process gain, lag time constant, and deadtime for implementing the controller design. Tuning of the controller is easily and intuitively done by… CONTINUE READING
