w k Solving these Equations simultaneously for kc and w, we get: kc = 7.61 (this is the ult imate kc) and wco = 0.127 2p 2 p

6.17 To validate the results using the graphical approach, we implement the same setup (plant) within the APC_Tool environment. Using a proportional control, we increase the gain unt il we reach the sustained oscillat ions. Figure 4 illustrates this condit ion and the value o f the gain is 7. Consequent ly, fro m graphical approach k cu = 7 and fro m the same figure Pu = 50 . From these two values, the ZN controller settings for a PI controller are calculated as: k c = 3.15 and t I = 41 66 . These are very close to the values obtained using the analyt ical approach. Figure 4: Closedloop response with a P controller using k c = 7 . Figures 5 and 6, show the closedloop responses using the designed controller for both setpoint and disturbance changes. Figure 5: Closedloop setpoint response with a PI controller using k c = 3.15 and t I = 41 66 . . Figure 6: Closedloop disturbance response with a PI controller using k c = 3.15 and t I = 41 66 . . 2. For the bioreactor (Exercise 4, Assignment 2), we would like to control the bio mass concentration ( x1 ) using the dilution rate (D). 1. Sketch the feedback control loop 2. Find the closedloop transfer funct ion between the process output and the setpoint for a P controllers 3. Find the characterist ic equat ion 1.
