Top 5 Control Engineering articles September 3-9
The top 5 most read articles online, from Sept. 3-9 for Control Engineering covered autotuning, ladder logic, wireless IIoT gateway design, and LTE networks. Links to each article below.
The historic challenges of single-loop tuning, the limited success of autotuning, and the modern difficulties of model-based control share the same root cause.
Using simulation for ladder logic allows users to test advanced situations that otherwise wouldn’t be possible, reducing potential costs and hazards for users.
Wireless: Software-defined radio (SDR) hardware and open-source programming software provides an alternative to proprietary wireless communications systems, helping improve Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) networks.
Proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers that can automatically select their own tuning parameters sound good but face challenges.
As well as four reasons why kinetic mesh is a better broadband solution for the manufacturing industry.
The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, Sept. 3-9, for articles published within the last two months.
