Two-Degree-of-Freedom Control Scheme for Robust Centralized PI/PID Controller Design Using Constrained Optimization

Saeed Tavakoli; Amir Afroomand

Volume 1, Issue 1 , June 2018, Pages 1-8

  For a two-input two-output distillation column with heavy interactions and long dead times, a two-by-two PI/PID controller is designed. The design objectives are good setpoint regulation and appropriate load disturbance rejection. The constraints are on degree of robust stability, control effort as well ...  Read More
