Webinar-How-to-Get-the-Most-Out-of-Control-Valves

Webinar Recording: How to Get the Most out of Control Valves

The data that is really needed when selecting and sizing a control valve is rarely understood and specified, which leads to excessive variability originating from the valve. In this presentation, ISA mentor Greg McMillan discusses pervasive problems and rampant misconceptions. He then provides guidance—supported by test results—on how to select a good throttling control valve. […]

Modified Smith Predictor-Based Cascade Control of Unstable Time Delay Processes

  Abstract: An improved cascade control structure with a modified Smith predictor is proposed for controlling open-loop unstable time delay processes. The proposed structure has three controllers of which one is meant for servo response and the other two are for regulatory responses. An analytical design method is derived for the two disturbance rejection controllers by […]
