Control Station's LOOP-PRO TUNER PID controller tuning software is integrated within the PlantPAx engineering workstation.
The interactive training is provided by a live instructor, and includes hands-on practice using ExperTune‚Äôs ‚ÄúVirtual Classroom.‚Äù
The standard reference for PID tuning seems to be the Ziegler-Nichols tuning rules developed in 1942 on a pneumatic controller.
To tune a control loop, analysis software must process some loop data. You must test or bump the loop somehow. For example a setpoint change in automatic or a controller output change in manual mode.
The reason to use derivative (or D) is that you can use more Proportional and especially more Integral action. The result can be a much faster reacting control loop.
