PIDAT - PID controller with relay autotuner
You need to have Java installed to run the virtual labs. Click the Launch button to download the lab installer to your computer. By clicking on the downloaded JNLP file, the lab will be automatically installed and launched. Virtual labs use Java Web Start technology.
The simulator demonstrates all features of PIDAT function block - PID controller with relay autotuner. The tuning algorithm is based on adaptive relay experiment which identifies frequency response sample with a given phase shift. The process model is build internally using one sample of frequency response. Finally the controller parameters are computed from the internal tables. The simulator demonstrates the PID loop tuning including noises. The detailed description is available in the reference manual.
How to start the applet?
Before starting the simulator by START button, the sampling period can be set in the field Sampling time. The continous applet running can be stopped by STOP button or paused by PAUSE button. The simulation speed can be adjusted by the slider. The re-init button reset all parameters to initial state.
All parameters of active blocks (non-shadow) can be changed in the dialog which is invoked by cliking at the block. Detailed description of block parameters is available in Function blocks reference manual.
