Control Engineering magazine for May 2014 edition has been released. You can read latest information on technology, products, news and trends in processing, discrete, and hybrid manufacturing industries in this edition.
Fixing PID, Part 2
Proportional-integral-derivative controllers may be ubiquitous, but they’re not perfect. Manufacturers of PID controllers must adjust the mechanism to solve specific control challenges. This feature follows up on Part 1, which looked at serveral issues that limit the performance of the theoretical PID algorithm in real-world applications of feedback control.
Industrial safety networks, security
Industial safety networks can lower risk while simplifying automation for the plant floor or within a machine. But don’t forget, security can impact safety.
