Continuous Cycling Tuning Example
In this interactive object, learners follow the steps required for the Ziegler-Nichols Continuous Cycling method. The process identification procedure is performed, calculations are made, and the proper PID values are programmed into the controller.
Learners consider the correct type of pushbutton to use as a Stop button, the way the Stop button should be hard wired, and the PLC input instruction to use. This animated object includes a short quiz. It is recommended that learners review the learning object “The PLC Examine-Off Instruction” before beginning this object.
