Parameter Estimation and an Extended Predictive-Based Tuning Method for a Lab-Scale Distillation Column
The present study proposes a new PI controller tuning method using extended predictive control (EPC). The PI controller parameter values are calculated using the EPC controller output and its closed-loop response. This provides a simple and an effective tuning strategy which results in an improved closed-loop response compared to conventional tuning methods. The tuning methodology is applicable for single input single output and multi input multi output stable processes. Simulation and experimental results reveal the efficacy of the method under plant uncertainty conditions.
