Automatic Tuning of Digital Controllers with Applications to HVAC Plants

Wallenborg, Anders; Åström, Karl Johan LU and Hägglund, Tore LU (1993) In Automatica 29(5). p.1333-1343
Abstract
It has been demonstrated that PID controllers can be tuned effectively based on an experiment with relay feedback. This paper describes a tuning method for a general digital controller based on relay feedback. The control design method is based on pole placement. An interesting feature is that the sampling period and the desired closed-loop poles are determined from the experiment. The method is also suited for pretuning of adaptive algorithms. The paper describes the basic ideas, which are illustrated by simulations. Results from tests on HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) plants are also reported.
