CHAPTER 2

THE CONICAL TANK LEVEL PROCESS

2.1 INTRODUCTION

in process industries for controlling the different process variables, due to

their simplicity, flexibility and efficiency. The tuning of the PID Controller is

very essential for the satisfactory operation of the process. In this thesis, the

application of the Conventional PI Controller, Genetic Algorithm tuned PI

Controller, Neuro tuned PI Controller, and Fuzzy Logic Controller for the

conical tank process is investigated. The controller performance is obtained,

in terms of ISE, ITSE, IAE and ITAE, and also through the time domain

specification criteria for servo, regulatory and servo-regulatory operations for

the conical tank process. Therefore, a literature review on the different

controllers and their performance is done, and reported in this chapter.

widely used in many process industries for several decades, due to their

simplicity, flexibility and efficiency. Zeigler and Nichols (1942) developed

the PID Controller tuning concept for open and closed loop operations. The

controller tuned parameters with Zeigler-Nichol’s method, perform well in

disturbance rejection, and poorly in tracking reference changes. Cohen and

24

Coon (1953) proposed the open loop tuning or process reaction curve method.

In the open loop tuning method, the connection between the controller and the

final control element is disconnected, and the step input is applied as an input

to the final control element and the process parameters are obtained from the

process reaction curve. The above mentioned method requires limited process

knowledge, but it offers lower damping and high sensitivity to the system.

Wills (1962) proposed the tuning maps concept for three mode controllers. In

the above mentioned paper, the overall approach for the calculation of

proportional gain, integral time and derivative time was discussed, and the

tuning concepts were highlighted. Miller et al (1967) proposed a comparison

of the controller tuning technique, in which the investigation of the process

reaction curve method is demonstrated and the process reaction curve

approximation is done; comparatively Miller et al (1967) is better than Cohen

and Coon (1953).

Integral Derivative (PID) Controllers by the optimal linear regulator theory.

In the above method, the optimal regulator was used to generate the

Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) Controller’s parameters, such as

proportional gain, integral time and derivative time. Hagglund et al (1985)

developed the auto tuning technique for the Proportional Integral Derivative

(PID) Controller, based on the dominant pole design. Astrom et al (1986)

introduced the concept of the expert systems in which the software programs

are supplemented by man machine interfaces. The design and application of

knowledge based expert systems for system control, improves the efficiency,

effectiveness and performance under uncertain and varying operating

conditions. Rivera et al (1986) introduced the design procedure of the Internal

Model Controller to establish PID rules with a well described approach. The

Internal Model Controller was developed (Morari and Zufiriou 1987), and it

25

complicated for higher order processes.

PID parameters by the optimization of the Integral Square Error (ISE),

Integral Absolute Error (IAE), Integral Time Square Error (ITSE) as the

performance indices. Corripio (1990) compared the performance of the error

criteria, in which the Minimization of Integral Absolute Error (IAE) generally

produces intermediate responses between fast responses, obtained from the

minimization of the Integral Square Error (ISE), and slow responses obtained

from the minimization of the Integral multiplied Time Absolute Error (ITAE).

Next, Hang et al (1991) developed the online auto-tuning of the Proportional

Integral Derivative (PID) Controller, based on the cross correlation technique,

described in the paper. In the above method, the Pseudo Random Binary

Signal (PRBS) is used as a reference signal to tune the auto tuner circuit.

Hang et al (1991) introduced refinement in the Zeigler Nichols tuning

formulae. Astrom et al (1992) introduced the concept towards intelligent

Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) Controllers. In the above paper, the

possibility of different intelligent controllers for the Proportional Integral

Derivative (PID) controllers, is also discussed.

Algorithm based technique for finding the tuning parameter of the digital PID

Controller. The above mentioned method is a simple, generic approach. A

classical method of optimization, namely, the gradient method by Varsek et al

(1993) is an often used method to find the optimal solution. The shortcoming

of the gradient descent method is its sensitivity to select the initial value. The

above mentioned method is well suited for the Proportional Integral

Derivative (PID) Controller, where the controller structure and parameters are

26

the optimal Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) Controller.

Algorithm. Ho et al (1995) introduced the performance and gain, and phase

margin with a well known Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) Controller

tuning formula. Dangprasert et al (1995) employed the Genetic Algorithm for

on-line parameter identification and controller tuning in the frequency control

of a power system. Zibo and Naghdy (1995) proposed the concept of the

application of the Genetic Algorithm for system identification. The limitations

and counter measures of the Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) Controller

for process control applications was introduced by Lee et al (1996). Rad and

Lo (1977) introduced the concept of a self tuning PID Controller, using the

Newton-Raphson method. Astrom et al (1998) proposed the design of

Proportional Integral (PI) Controllers, based on the non-convex optimization

technique. Ho et al (1998) developed the concept of optimal gain and phase

margin, for the calculation of the parameters of the Proportional Integral

Derivative (PID) Controller. Wang et al (1999) proposed the Proportional

the dynamic plant. Ya-Gang Wang and Hui-He Shao (2000) introduced a

simplified optimum method for the Proportional Integral (PI) Controller,

which is applicable to different complicated processes. The above mentioned

method produces high performance, and is widely used for linear self

regulating processes.

Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) Controller tuning concept, which is

applicable to the different complicated processes. Krohling and Rey (2001)

27

Integral Derivative (PID) Controller, using the Genetic Algorithm. Liu and

Daley (2001) proposed the optimal tuning concept for the Proportional

Integral Derivative (PID) Controller, which is applicable to different

industrial system’s applications. Ari Ingimundarson and Tore Hagglund

(PID) Controller and that of the dead time compensating controller, based on

Controller in the LMI (Linear Matrix Inequality) technique. Its applicability

in different dynamic plants is also discussed in the paper. Next, Kao-Shing

and Hwang et al (2003) proposed the reinforcement learning algorithm to the

problems. Lin and Chou (2003) proposed the Induction motor servo drive,

using the slide mode controller with the Genetic Algorithm. Teng et al (2003)

implemented the Genetic Algorithm (GA) which is applicable to the on-line

tuning parameter of the Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) controller, in

the liquid level system for the cylindrical tank.

Integral (PI) Controller. In the above paper, the frequency response method is

limited and the new tuning rule is introduced. Kazantzis et al (2005) proposed

the optimal tuning control technique for nolinear processes. Toscano (2005)
