Troubleshoot MPC Models And Improve MPC Performance Using New Technology Not Needing Step Tests

You and your team worked hard for six months, completed an MPC project successfully. A few months later, many CVs (controlled variables) are oscillatory and looks like below: You do not have the time and resources to find out what is the cause of the oscillations. You can auto-step tests (auto-step program) from Aspen DMC3 […]

DCS-Based APC (Advanced Process Control) Vs MPC (Model Predictive Control)

In this blog we will explain the basis for choosing DCS-based Advanced Process Control (APC) over Model Predictive Control (MPC). PiControl has extensive skills and experience in making a judicious selection between DCS-resident advanced process control (APC) and a full-blown model predictive control (MPC). Depending on the plant and process characteristics, DCS-based advanced process control […]
