A particle swarm optimization approach for tuning of SISO PID control loops
Linear control systems can be easily tuned using classical tuning techniques such as the Ziegler-Nichols and Cohen-Coon tuning formulae. Empirical studies have found that these conventional tuning methods result in an ...
Neural networks approach to process control : the case of processes with long dead times
This study relates to applications of static artificial neural networks (ANNs) to two basic problems of process control: (a) process model identification, and (b) optimal controller tuning. The emphasis is on model ...
Design and development of a process control valve diagnostic system based on artificial neural network ensembles
This research discusses the design and development of a computational intelligent based diagnostic system to assess the operating state of a process control valve. Process control valves react to a controller signal and ...
Preaging techniques as a means of stabilising thermoelectric drift in nickel-chromium/nickel-aluminium thermocouples for use in an aluminium heat treating furnace
This dissertation is primarily concerned with investigating and improving the degree of accuracy and precision that may be achieved from temperat~re measurements made utilising nickel-chromium/nickel-aluminium (Type K) ...
