Topic: Troubleshooting Oscillatory PID loops


Oscillations in control loops are an indication of poor control loop performance. There are various reasons for oscillations in a control loop like improper PID tuning, control valve problems, nonlinearity in process, process interactions etc. Identifying root cause for these oscillations can be confusing and time consuming.


The presentation will cover a systematic way to rule out possible causes and identify the source of oscillations. Once the source is identified, available methods to fix oscillations, will also be discussed in detail.
