Class on Detailed loop analysis with Expertune
Kapuskasing, On, on November 18-20, 2003.
Class on Detailed loop analysis with Expertune (on the beach!)
Tampa, Fl, on December 2-3-4, 2003.
We offer two new seminars:
Seminar on advanced tools in process control #SE-130-3E
Seminar on performance assessment techniques #SE-120-2E
you for all of you who visited us at ISA 2003 in Houston in October
21-23. The papers presented are posted on our web site at http://www.topcontrol.com/en/papers.htm
Top Control services (optimization-training-consulting) are now offered from our Montreal office (FOB Pointe-Claire). Montreal is added to Cincinnati, Milwaukee and Quebec City.
Montréal office: 514-695-5095
Oscillations in your process?
optimize and analyze process problems, many tools are available. For
example, using cross correlation analysis on many signals we can
determine which variable has an impact on another. The relationship
(time, amplitude, …) found will then be used by the software to
calculate the feedforward (gain, lead/lag, dead time). If no
feedfroward is used, another tool will help the user to determine PID
tuning parameters on these loops to reduce interaction.
find hidden cycling in signals, we use the Power Spectral Density
Analysis. This tool helps us to find where these oscillations come
from, for example the process, a mechanical device or another loop.
Once the period and strength of strongest oscillations are found, they
will lead us to the fault.
Performance Monitoring Software, these tools are automatically applied
on signals and the program generates prioritized lists and diagnostics.
These tools are part of the new seminar offered in 2004
SE-130-3E. See details:
