Abstract
In this paper two novel autotuners are compared with two industrially available ones. The aim is to see if the research frontline can improve the industry standard of today. Experiments are made on three laboratory processes with different characteristics. Two lag-dominated processes of which one is a level control problem with fast dynamics, and one a temperature control problem with slow dynamics, as well as one delay-dominated level control process. Both the experiments and the obtained controller performances are evaluated and discussed. The results show that the performance of the stateof-the-art industrial autotuners can be significantly improved.
