### Outline of Today’s Lecture

• Review

• Margins from Nyquist Plots

• Margins from Bode Plot

• Non Minimum Phase Systems

• Ideal PID Controller

• Proportional Control

• Proportional-Integral Control

• Proportional-Integral Derivative Control

• Ziegler Nichols Tuning

### Margins

• Margins are the range from the current system design to the edge of instability. We will determine

• Gain Margin

• How much can gain be increased?

• Formally: the smallest multiple amount the gain can be increased before the closed loop response is unstable.

• Phase Margin

• How much further can the phase be shifted?

• Formally: the smallest amount the phase can be increased before the closed loop response is unstable.

• Stability Margin

• How far is the the system from the critical point?

### Stability Margin

• It is possible for a system to have relatively large gain and phase margins, yet be relatively unstable.

### Non-Minimum Phase Systems

• Non minimum phase systems are those systems which have poles on the right hand side of the plane: they have positive real parts.

• This terminology comes from a phase shift with sinusoidal inputs

• Consider the transfer functions

• The magnitude plots of a Bode diagram are exactly the same but the phase has a major difference:

### Another Non Minimum Phase SystemA Delay

• Delays are modeled by the function which multiplies the T.F.

### Proportional-Integral-DerivativeController

Based on a survey of over eleven thousand controllers in the refining, chemicals and pulp and paper industries, 97% of regulatory controllers utilize PID feedback.

L. Desborough and R. Miller, 2002 [DM02].

• PID Control, originally developed in 1890’s in the form of motor governors, which were manually adjusted

• The first theory of PID Control was published by a Russian (Minorsky) who was working for the US Navy in 1922

• The first papers regarding tuning appeared in the early 1940’s

• Today. there are several hundred different rules for tuning PID controllers (See Dwyer, 2003, who has cataloged the major methods)

• While most of the discussion is about the “ideal” PID controller, there are many forms of the PID controller

### PID Control

• Process independent

• The best controller where the specifics of the process can not be modeled

• Leads to a “reasonable” solution when tuned for most situations

• Inexpensive: Most of the modern controllers are PID

• Can be tuned without a great amount of experience required

• Not optimal

• Can be unstable unless tuned properly

• Not dependent on the process

• Hunting (oscillation about an operating point)

• Derivative noise amplification

### The Ideal PID Controller

• The input/output realtionship for the PID Controller is the Integral-Differential Equation

• The ideal PID controller has the transfer function

• Structurally it would look like

### Proportional Controller

• With kp=7.2,

• We could reduce the error with a prefilter:

### Proportional – Integral Controller

• Most controllers using this technology are of this form:

• This reacts to the system error and reduces it

### Proportion-Integral Control

no error

### Proportional- Integral-DerivativeControl

• The derivative component is rarely used.

• Reduces overshoot

• May slows the response time depending on the system

• Sensitive to noise

• For the F-16 Elevator

### PID Tuning

• Tuning is the choosing of the parameters kd, ki, and kp, for a PID Controller

• The oldest and most used method of tuning are the Ziegler-Nichols (ZN) methods developed in the 1940’s.

• The first method is based on the assumption that the process without its feedback loop performs with a 1st order transfer function, perhaps with a transport delay

• The second method assumes that a higher order system has dominant poles which can be excited by gain to the point of steady oscillation

• In order to establish the constants for computing the parameters simple tests are performed of the process

### Ziegler-Nichols PID Tuning Method 1 for First Order Systems

• A system with a transfer function of the formhas the time response to a unit step input:

• This response might also be generated from a higher order system that is has high damping.

### Ziegler-Nichols PID Tuning Method 1 for First Order Systems

• The advice given is to draw a line tangent to the response curve through the inflection point of the curve.

• However, a mathematical first order response doesn’t have a point of inflection as it is of the form (at no place does the 2nd derivative change sign.) My advice: place the line tangent to the initial curve slope

• Adjust the gain K of the system by multiplying compensator by 1/K

### Ziegler-Nichols PID TuningMethod 2 for Unknown Oscillatory System

• The form of the transfer function unknown but the system can be put in steady oscillation by increasing the gain:

• Increase gain, K, on closed loop system until the gain at steady oscillation, Kcr, is found

• Then measure the critical period, Pcr

• Apply table for controller constants and multiply by system gain 1/K
