Control Engineering‘s top 5 content over the past week covered PID implementation, COVID-19 controls, future-proof manufacturing, creating connected industries and oil and gas. Links to each article below.

1. PID-correction-based control system implementation

The analog PID controller, still considered as the most powerful, can be modified as a discrete-time control system. Equations and examples follow.

2. Layered COVID-19 controls significantly reduce risks

QuaRAD method quantifies efficacy across thousands of scenarios; rating system anticipated.

3. How IIoT, AI can help make future-proof manufacturing a reality

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) offers manufacturers greater productivity and better information insights through artificial intelligence (AI) as companies look toward the factory of the future.

4. Creating connected industries, technologies with IIoT, Industry 4.0

Seven steps to a smarter factory: Automation vendors want to gain a competitive advantage with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0. Ethernet with time-sensitive networking (TSN) helps.

5. UniversalAutomation.Org welcomes oil and gas giant

UniversalAutomation.Org (UAO), an independent association managing a reference implementation of an industrial automation shared source IEC 61499 standard runtime, welcomes oil and gas giant ExxonMobil as a member.

The list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on controleng.com, May 2-8, 2022, for articles published within the last two months.
