  2. 2. E3145/2/2 PRINCIPLES OF CONTROLLERS 2.0 EXPLANATION OF PRINCIPLES OF BASIC CONTROLLERS Controller is a device which receives input from two points : (i) a value which is sent by transmitter (ii) a value which is set by set point The output from the controller is send to the valve controller. Figure 2.0 : Block Diagram of controller (Source : Mansor Bin Laman (1996), Amalan Bengkel Peralatan) INPUTINPUT The main component of controller are : Comparator mechanism Controller Feedback mechanism Comparator mechanism Feedback mechanism Relay Sensor MV SP Output Supply
  3. 3. E3145/2/3 PRINCIPLES OF CONTROLLERS Figure 2.0 shows the input controller is a signal which is sent by transmitter. This signal is known as a transmitter signal (MV) and set point. If the output depends on the two inputs functions well and the process is in a stable condition, then the transmitter signal is similar to the set point. The comparator mechanism functions as comparator of both input signals. An error will exist if the input value is not the same. The detector will detect the error signal and determine if there is imbalance between error signal and feedback signals. If there is a difference, the detector will balance both of these signals. The feedback mechanism is a mechanism which balances the system. The feedback signal is always similar to the output signal. The main components of controller are : (i) Comparator mechanism. It consists of two bellows which is for transmitter signal and set point signal. Its function is to differentiate both the input signals. (ii) The controller consists of a flapper and nozzle. Its function is to detect the error signal from the different output and the feedback signal. (iii) The feedback mechanism consists of the feedback bellows. Its function is to balances and stable the system. It also has an effect towards multiple output of a controller. 2.1 EXPLANATION OF BASIC CONTROLLERS COMPONENTS 2.1.1 Bellows The structure of a bellow is shown in Figure 2.1. It consists of a thin metal which is formed into a wave cylinder shape. Air pressure will depress a bellow. When air pressure is increased, bellow will extend and displacement exists. This displacement is linked to the convenient ‘lever’ for give the pressure increase reading. This displacement force include in mechanical force categories.

  9. 9. E3145/2/9 PRINCIPLES OF CONTROLLERS 2.2DESIGN OF SCHEMATIC CIRCUIT FOR CONTROLLER ACTION TYPES 2.2.1 Types of Controller There are a few types of controller used to control a process either in a form of Proportional output to the error, Proportional and Integral to the error or Proportional and Derivative output to the first error. Controller can be used in the form of single mode of Proportional, Integral, or Derivative, two mode of Proportional and Integral (P+I) and Proportional and Derivative (P+D), and three mode of Proportional, Integral and Derivative (P+I+D). The figures below show the design of schematic circuit for controller action types. There are three types of controller : a) Proportional controller b) Integral controller c) Derivative controller INPUTINPUT

  16. 16. E3145/2/16 PRINCIPLES OF CONTROLLERS 2.3 EXPLANATION OF CIRCUITS OPERATION 2.3.1 Proportional Controller (P) This controller can be found in Proportional controller where the output is always proportional to the error ( e ) signal. If the error signal is small, the control action will also be small and if the error signal is high, the control action will also be high. Once the controller detects an error, it will start to act. Output depends on controller gain, kc i.e. controller output = controller gain x error Figure 2.4 (see INPUT 2.2) shows, when measured signal equals to the set point, the system is stable. In other words, if the input process is equal to the output process, a stable system is obtained. If the Proportional controller is used there will be an offset where the measured signal will not reach the set point. Therefore if the control valve has to be 50% opened, we need to open the control valve more than 50% to achieve stability. 2.3.2 Integral Controller (I) Integral controller responses to the integration of error signal to time. So, output is proportional to the area below the curve with time, Controller output α ∫ t e dt In Figure 2.6 (see INPUT 2.2), bellows and spring are in the reverse position compared to Proportional controller in Figure 2.5. INPUTINPUT
  17. 17. E3145/2/17 PRINCIPLES OF CONTROLLERS 2.3.3 Derivative Controller (D) Derivative controller reacts to the rate of change but not to the change of magnitude. Output is proportional to the derivation error signal (e) to time, Controller output α de dt If error is not changing or fixed there will be no output. Derivative controller is shown in Figure 2.7 (see INPUT 2.2). Derivative controller has one limit which is known as Derivative Limit. This limit distinguishes Proportional Controller and Derivative Controller. In a stable condition the derivative controller does not affect the output and it is always used in the process where temperature is involved. As a conclusion, if we want a fast controller, then the Proportional controller is better but offset will occur. However, if we want to reduce offset, the Derivative controller can be used and we want to eliminate it, then the Integral controller should used. 2.3.4 Two Mode Control System (Proportional and Integral Controller) The Figure 2.8 (see INPUT 2.2) shows a basic concept of a two mode control system. The comparator mechanism (which consists of two bellows) is place on one end of lever while on the other end there are two feedback bellows. A sensor is placed between the feedback mechanism and comparator. The operation of a two mode control system is different from a single mode control system because it combines the action of either both Proportional controller or Integral controller only. Based on Figure 2.8, two things are added to the controller i.e. Integral/ Reset bellows and Integral limit (adjustable). When measured signal is increased, force impedance will come closer to the nozzle and thus will increase output. Increased pressure will make proportional bellow change the position of force impedance hence stabilize output pressure. Pressure will drop when it passes through integration unit. This pressure will pass integration bellow and push force impedance closer to the nozzle. So, output pressure can be increased further.
  18. 18. E3145/2/18 PRINCIPLES OF CONTROLLERS A stable system will be achieved when measured signal is equal to the set point and output pressure will be stable. Thus, offset can be eliminated. If a stable system cannot be achieved, the integration limit can be adjusted. If the integration limit is fully opened, the controller will act as an ON/OFF Controller. If integration limit is fully closed, the controller will act as a Proportional controller only. 2.3.5 Three Mode Controller System (P+I+D) Figure 2.9 (see INPUT 2.2), shows three mode controller system. The operation is similar to P+I Controller but with the addition of a derivative limit. For this system, all controllers (Proportional, Integral and Derivative) will affect the responses. So, we need to adjust every controller to suit the process. Adjustments need to be done individually to stabilize process and eliminate offset. To achieve that, integral limit and derivative limit must be adjusted correctly. 2.3.6 Advantages and Disadvantages Controllers have advantages and disadvantages. Table 2.1 below shows the advantages and disadvantages of a single and two mode controller. CONTROLLER ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES Proportional Faster response when load is changing Offset exist Integral Eliminate offset Longer recovery time Derivative Reduce offset No output when no error Proportional + Derivative Reduce recovery time and offset Offset still occurs Proportional + Integral Can eliminate offset Longer recovery time Table 2.1 (Source : Mansor Bin Laman (1996), Amalan Bengkel Peralatan)

  20. 20. E3145/2/20 PRINCIPLES OF CONTROLLERS Feedback To Activity 2c 2.5 Based on Figure 2.12, two things are added to the controller i.e. Integral/ Reset bellows and Integral limit (adjustable). When measured signal is increased, force impedance will come closer to the nozzle and thus will increase output. Increased pressure will make proportional bellow change the position of force impedance hence stabilize output pressure. Pressure will drop when it passes through integration unit. This pressure will pass integration bellow and push force impedance closer to the nozzle. So, output pressure can be increased further.
  21. 21. E3145/2/21 PRINCIPLES OF CONTROLLERS A stable system will be achieved when measured signal is equal to the set point and output pressure will be stable. Thus, offset can be eliminated.
