GokulU.G. student, Department of Instrumentation and Control,Saranathan College of Engineering, TrichyAbstract- This paper deals with the differenttuning of PID (Proportional Integral Derivative)controller for a complex nonlinear process suchthat conical tank process. The conical process issuch a difficult problem due to its nonlinearperformance and continuously changing crosssectional area[3]. The difficulty faced in thatprocess is overcome by different type of tuningtechniques. To obtain a optimization process thethese are the techniques used FOPDT, [2]tuningtechniques and IMC controller.Index Terms- FOPDT, PID CONTROLLER,TUNING TECHNIQUEI.INTRODUCTIONIt is important to maintain the level of the tank invarious fields. It mostly in process industries. Thevariation in the level by variable process parameters.It is adjusted and governs by PID controller andvarious tuning techniques [4]. By using thistechniques the conical tank process to achieveoptimization control. The PID controller offers theflexibility to achieve the ultimate limit to loopperformance of industrial processes [1]. A PIDcontroller has historically been considered to be thebest controller.PID controller is a control loop feedback mechanismwidely used in process control systems. A PIDcontroller calculates an error value as the differencebetween a measured process variable and desired setpoint. [1]The controller attempts to minimize theerror by adjusting the process through use of amanipulated variable. A common characteristic ofproportional control is an error between the set pointand control point which is referred todroop(or)offset.[4]IJIRT 101540Fig.1BasicprocessdiagramThe general form of PID controller equationis,The offset is an undesired characteristic ofproportional only and is easily eliminated by addingintegral action. The integral adjusts controllers inaccordance with both the size of the deviation fromset point and the time it lasts [2].Derivative control isa prediction of future errors based on current rate ofchange. The sum of these actions is used to adjust theprocess via a control element such as the position of acontrol valve a damper or the power supplied to aheating element. Among the well-known methods aremodified ZN method(MZN), damped oscillationmethod(DOSC),internal model control(IMC) andISE,ITAE,IAE error performance approach.[5]II.MATHEMATICAL MODELLING OF ACONICAL TANKThe nonlinear process of conical tank used in variousprocess industries.

LetdThe optimum settings for a P-I-D controller are:(Table 1)CONTROLLERPIDKC1.1GdKIPd/3.6KDPd/9MODIFIED ZN METHOD:In some of control loops the measure ofoscillation, provide by ¼ decay ratio and corresponding to large overshootsfor setpoint changes are undesirable thereforemore conservative methods are oftenpreferable such as modified Z-N.These modified settings that are shown inTable 2 are some overshoot and no overshoot.[4]The optimum controller settings are:(Table 2)CONTROLLERKCSome overshoot0.33KcuNo overshoot0.2KcKIPu/2Pu/2KDPu/3Pu/3INTERNAL MODEL CONTROL:The Internal Model Control (IMC) method was developed with robustness in mind. The Ziegler-Nichols open loopand Cohen-Coon methods give large controller gain and short integral time, which isn't conducive to chemicalengineering applications. The IMC method relates to closed-loop control and doesn't have overshooting oroscillatory behavior. The IMC methods however are very complicated for systems with first order dead time. In thiswe chose the 87 for the optimum control.[4]The optimum controller settings are:(Table 3)CONTROLLERKCKIImprove PI(2 d)/ 2 IV.KDd/2-Recommended / d( 0.2 always) 1.7PERFORMANCE CRITERIA FOR CONICAL TANK: (Table 4)TechniquesDampedoscillationmethodModified ZNmethodInternal modelcontrolRise time0.441Settling time26Overshoot195Peak time8.7731.733.61.713.695.8745.323.51.24IJIRT 101540INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF INNOVATIVE RESEARCH IN TECHNOLOGY159

For better optimum control we chose theIMC (Improve PI) but it has over high over shootthan the modified ZN tuning method and it hassettling time also high.

So the Modified ZNmethod gives the better and optimum control.IJIRT 101540REFERANCES[1] Process Control (Principles and Applications) BySurekhaBhanot[2] K.
