ExperTune Software Simplifies Level Control

ExperTune has developed new techniques to model and tune level controls, which allow users to meet their desired results even when the process has not achieved steady state. This means users can develop excellent tuning for level controls, even when little data is available.

Non-Steady-State (NSS) tuning integrates seamlessly with ExperTune’s PlantTriage and PID Loop Optimizer software. The tools also provide unique capabilities to tune for both tight control and surge tank scenarios. An integrated wizard based on the level-tuning techniques of F. Greg Shinskey is also included.

By answering a series of simple questions, users can develop optimal tuning for surge tanks. NSS modeling is included with PlantTriage version 11 and higher, and with PID Loop Optimizer version 21 and higher. NSS Tuning for level controls adds to ExperTune’s existing NSS capabilities for other loop dynamics.
