About PiControl Solutions LLC
PiControl Solutions LLC is an International OEM that develops and sells software and technology for industrial process control, PID control loop tuning, multivariable closed-and-open-loop system identification (transfer function parameter models), MPC (Model Predictive Controller) identification and maintenance, real-time PID/APC control quality monitoring (CLPM – control loop performance monitoring), OPC (OLE for process control), LIMS (laboratory management systems), APC (Advanced Process Control) design, calculation and applications inside DCS or PLC. The software can be used both in industrial control rooms and also in universities and colleges for semester teaching and also for process control research.
PiControl Solutions LLC is also a worldwide leader on primary and advanced (APC) process control and Model Predictive Control (MPC) training and education offering many industrial PID and advanced process control (APC) training courses in classroom, online/remote and onsite formats.
PiControl Solutions LLC also does industrial process control consulting, especially in the area of primary & advanced process control (APC), and Model Predictive Control (MPC) in order to assist chemical plants and manufacturing sites in increasing plant and operating profits by maximizing production rates, minimizing utilities, minimizing waste, speeding up product grade transitions, running the plant smoother, better (with fewer shutdowns and upsets) and provides the control room operator techniques for improving the plant operation.

PiControl Solutions LLC’s process control software is based on new, novel, breakthrough algorithms, different and superior to competition, where PiControl Solution LLC’s process control software:
- Runs entirely in the time domain (no need to use Laplace, discrete or “Z” domain).
- Can identify MIMO models (multiple input – multiple output models) and can work with complete closed-loop data (with PID control loops and advanced process control (APC) schemes in Auto or even Cascade modes, without any step tests) or open loop data
- Works well even amidst sensor noise and unmeasured disturbances without any data preconditioning or whitening
- Requires far less data than the current competing ARMAX and Box Jenkins methods.
- Can improve any existing model predictive control (MPC) multivariable models like DMC or RMPCT.
These features brings PiControl Solution LLC’s process control software far superior to system identification, PID tuning and advanced process control (APC) or model predictive control (MPC) optimization methodologies.
PiControl Solutions LLC is an international company with offices and alliances in the following countries:

PROPRIETARY NOVEL INVENTIONS
PiControl Solutions LLC is constantly developing new automation and process control products and new technology. PiControl Solutions LLCs products are unique in many ways from the competition in being super-fast, compact with a very user-friendly interface all in time domain. Out of the many software technological advancements generated by PiControl, the following three are a true breakthrough:
- PiControl Solutions LLC invented the revolutionary “True Amplitude Detection” (TAD) process control algorithm which is the brain behind the Tadpole and Apromon process control products for reliably detecting signal oscillations irrespective of frequency distribution and disturbances (drift and noise).
- PiControl Solutions LLC also invented process control algorithm that identifies multivariable transfer function parameters, all in time domain, using short duration closed-loop process data which is the brain behind Columbo and Pitops process control products.
- PiControl Solutions LLC conceived and implemented a revolutionary optimization technique, 3-G technology, that isolates sensor noise, drifts and process disturbances from process data and integrated it into Columbo and Pitops process control software products to enhance process dynamics identification. This invention allows the precise identification of multivariable transfer functions, all in time domain, even with very short-duration closed-loop data.
Our process control and automation software products, technology and ideas can work with any DCS (distributed control system) or PLC (programmable logic controller) manufactured in any country, including Honeywell (TDC3000, Experion), Foxboro/Invensys, Yokogawa, Emerson/Fisher DeltaV, Siemens/Modicon, Allen Bradley, Unitronics, Rockwood, ABB, Bailey, etc. Our process control and automation software can also seamlessly connect to Aspen Tech, Matrikon, Kepware, Vista-Control, OSI, and other common products. Connectivity is provided via both OPC and Excel.
