Top 5 Control Engineering articles September 30 to October 6
The top 5 most read articles online, from September 30 to October 6 for Control Engineering covered RPC and model-based control, water/wastewater applications, OOIP, advanced process control, and prolonging power plant life. Links to each article below.
Part 3: Rate-predictive control, an alternative algorithm to proportional-integral-derivative (PID) and model-based control, can provide single-loop control. See three RPC advantages and two model-based control limitations.
The water and wastewater industry is improving digitalization and automation with smarter sensors designed to make operations safer.
Interfaces and methods used in object-oriented industrial programming (OOIP) help deliver productivity of object-oriented programming (OOP) without the complexity. Because plants and equipment are assembled from objects, it’s logical that their control programming should be, too.
Are there connections between advanced process control (APC) and data analytics? Recent developments in the field of information technology (IT) and its use in the manufacturing world provide insights.
A West Virginia University chemical engineer is tapping into artificial intelligence (AI) to prolong the lives of power plant boilers.
